    ngd: I ALMOST MADE IT OUTTA THERE. I SWEAR I DID!

    So, last week at NAMM, we took a side excursion to Wild Westy Guitars, home of muh man, DFD. I had told myself, no guitars this trip (amps, that's another story to be told at a later date), and I really meant it. After over 3 hours of drooling over a bunch of really nice stuff and watching my comrades (you know who you are) add to their arsenals, we were on our way out the door, when out of the corner of my eye, I saw one unusual shaped PRS case. Hmmmm, what's in that?

    It would have been impossible to leave without it.

    Holy, holy, holy!! It would have weakened the strongest among us. What kind of wood is that? Played it yet?? (probably a stupid question....)

    Wow!

    I love hollow body jazzboxes. I like how they look, how they feel and how they sound. So for a second PRS, for me, a HB would be of choice.

    And this one would spot on!

    Beautiful
    Congrats

    That's fine! I am going to guess the wood is ziricote.

    1st PS hollow body with top and back made from Macassar ebony, as is the fretboard. The middle of the body is mahogany, and the neck is figured mahogany. The bird inlays are etched mammoth ivory.

    Steve-o, oak? You found a PRS made of oak? Nice score!

    The Wild West is a dangerous place. Love the Macassar top! Looks absolutely amazing. Another stunner to your stable.

    As one of those comrades, I can safely say that these pics do not do this beauty justice!!

    The look on 11Top's face when we opened the case was priceless!!
