    Jo men det finns förvånansvärt få! PRS är för dyrt i sverige! Rapè lingon, det e nymodigheter det inte riktigt kommit överrens med "smaksatt" snus. Maybe I should have asked around first haha but i just bought everything original directly from PRS, should be arriving any day now.

    Nice!

    Would it be possible for you to post a close up pic of the tremolo uprout?
    I'm going to do that to my CE24 and would love to see what PRS does in detail.

    Just got done sanding the headstock and there were actually a couple of cracks in the wood under all that paint. That's just bad quality control right there!

    Oh, man! That looks like a lot of fun right there! I would white back that sucker in a second! (or ten days)

    Thank you! I never could tell if it was recessed under the leading edge of the bridge and now I know that it isn't.

    Now to make a template and fire up the router.

    It was! I had forgotten how therapeutic it could be to refinish giutars. But now comes the thing I dread, sanding down the clearcoat on the veneer without burning through it...

    Jag reser till Sverige nästan varje sommar, för att hälsa på min familj. Kanske nästa gång, jag skall ta med några PRS som jag kan sälja.
