    Ebony top in Private Stock?

    I've noticed a lot of luthiers have been using more and more ebony as tops in private builds and I was wondering if PRS had ever done one? I can't recall ever seeing one.


    Below is an example of ebony toped guitar:

    Markie has a badass P22 with an ebony back.

    Wild West Guitars is having a way cool Ebony topped Hollow body PS guitar made. It should be done in a couple of months. During my last trip to the Wood Library there was some nice ebony available for tops, or backs.

    Now THAT sounds like something unique! I gotta keep my eyes peeled.

    That Tremonti PRS tour video posted the other day shows him drooling over an ebony top PS. It starts at about 5:26 in the video.
