WOW!!!! What finish is this?
Not to derail this thread, but I have a question on guitar weight from the private stock . I recently purchased ( did not receive yet ) a Ted McCarty DC245 wood library from willcutt. I noticed after the fact, that my guitar is lighter than many of the others. I read somewhere that some woods if high quality is lighter than the same wood type, but mine happens to be around 7.1 lbs and seems all the others start at 7.6 and higher.
I realize my guitar is not private stock, but I was told that the wood library in the type of wood that is used for private stock. Not sure if that is accurate though.
I am not sure if this makes a difference, but my main playing style is lead and I want great sustain. This guitar may give me all this, but wondering your opinion on weight vs tone / sustain ?
Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place.

I bet thats a big problem when you work for PRS. You see all these lovely guitars and you cant take them home.
I am not a luthier but i am in my own workshop.
Just... WOW!!! I loved the Olive PS that Brian had in stock a while back, glad to see they can easily reproduce that finish!!! That HB above... yowza!!!
Here's a little taste to hold you over until Friday.
When is a white wash not a white wash? When the maple is so clean and so clear that no white wash is required.
Check it out: Phillybri used to have a band: Resonance
But he's soooo over them now!
I have a maple Tonare being made...that one sure looks nice!
The interesting thing about life is that it is utterly preposterous.
