    NGD - SC58 Artist Fade w/Maple neck!

    I've been after an SC58 just like this since they were introduced.... problem was, back then it would have been a PS order given the neck alone. Upon my visit to the Experience a few weeks ago, I was hoping to find something similar now that the Artist pack was out there. MANY guitars piqued my interest, however, why not just order it the way I invisioned it....

    That lead me to searching the old interweb upon my return home for some additional ideas before I placed the order.... a simple search - "PRS fade" revelaed this beauty. I could have sworn that someone got in my head and stole my vision!!! LOL!

    Born on 8/15/12... this guitar was destined to be mine. Here are a few quick pics.... the finish is gorgeous but impossible to photograph. When the weather improves a bit, I'll take some more with my SLR.

    Indeed! This one happens to sport a one-piece quilt top, 53/10's and mixed hardware.... I'm going to put it through the paces tonight. Tone report to follow

    That's a truly interesting guitar! I love the SC58. Mine has a 'hog neck with ebony board and 53/10s. It has definitely become my #1, but it did take about a month for that to happen, because the ebony and 53/10s were different from what I was used to. That may just be due to my expectations having owned a Stripped 58.

    I wound up changing the way I set up my amps, and even changed picks to take advantage of what this particular combination does. It was worth the trouble. I love the guitar and the pickups.

    That is gorgeous! What effect does the maple neck have on her tone?

    Initial impressions.... WOW the neck is killer! Smooth as silk... Slick as can be. Modestly cranked through my Splawn it appears to articulate the highs quite well and definitely has more "snap". REALLY cranked... it should cut through any mix at extreme volumes . Throaty!

    The cleans are real sparkly .... I suppose these pickups are designed well for this tone. They excel for sure in this arena.

    Still experimenting but everything about this SC58 is superb!

    Wow that is stunning!

    I've been wondering how 53/10s would work with a maple neck too! Congratulations!
