    PRS 2 CHANNEL H FANCY FACEPLATE

    I had a local buddy make a faceplate for my 2 channel H out of a piece of burly claro that I had lying around. This piece of wood had so many bark inclusions and knots that we had to maneuver the template around to get a workable piece. While I don't necessarily like it any better than the flamed maple, I do think this natural piece of walnut looks cool with the paisley covering.

    This looks great and makes me wonder if anyone has done any other cosmetic changes to their gear. like putting black paisley around the outside

    No, no. I have no ulterior motive, I just want to see it installed so we get the full effect. I think the exotic wood looks amazing.

    I have some extra velcro you could use just to stick it on what's already there...

    It's not hard to install. The same guy made this one from a piece of maple I took to him. Here it is installed on my C:




    I haven't installed the walnut one as I'm waiting for my 2 Channel Custom before I decide what to do with this walnut front. It will probably end up on the 2 channel H in the OP.

    This burl was so squirrelly that we made it a tad thicker than PRS does. 5/8" is what we used.
