    Nitro Finish??

    What's up everyone? I'm new to PRS guitars and to the forum. I recently aquired 2 CE-24's, one being a 1996 model, and the other a 2002 model that had been modded with Johnny Hiland PRS pickups, Kluson Locking Tunners, and a 3 way toggle / coil tap (my favorite of the two). Anyway, these two guitars have made me a PRS enthusiest, and one thing I keep seeing is the difference in the finishes... where can i find info on when the nitro finish was (is?) used and on what models?

    Nitro hasn't been used that often, but from what I can remember it has been used on:

    * the original Modern Eagle, including the recent NOS models that were sold
    * the satin finish series of a few years ago (Singlecut, Standard 24, Standard 22)
    * the early DGTs, until the V12 finish was introduced in late 2010
    * the Signature Limited run by Private Stock
    * Private Stocks, if specified that way

    ME 2 and ME III were also nitro - the 2 was gloss, the III was satin. They switched the ME to V12 with the Quatro.
