Thread: Incoming NGD CU24

    Incoming NGD CU24

    Hello PRS peoples,


    Just picked this up and I can't wait for it to arrive. It will be my first PRS after wanting one for years. I hope it is half as good in reality as it looks in the pics.


    I always wanted a quilt top but they are hard to come by in the quality I would like. Then I came across this flame top 2013 CU24. Definitely one of the nicest I've seen and I love the whale blue colour. Also love the fact they put abalone back inside the inlays on these.


    Should be here in 10 days or so so will post an update when she's here

    Beauty.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Congrats! Color (or is it colour?) is a beauty! Better find a nice shirt to match! :-)

    Thanks all, the only thing that has me a little apprehensive is a wee flaw you can see on the third pic near the top horn,above the neck p/up close to the binding. There is a stripe across the maple top and when zoomed in it looks as though there are a few black spots. I guess this is just all in the beauty of a natural wood top though. I'm sure it won't detract from the beauty of the guitar as long as it is natural and not been created during the build process.

    Can't wait to get my fingers on to it!

    I am pretty sure that's just a chatoyance effect from the wood. Does not look like a flaw to me.

    No mate that isn't a flaw, that's nature's goodness! A "flaw" is caused by human beings.

    Ok soleanerd a new word today, chatoyance. Hmm, will google to find out what it means! It does look to me like a variation in the wood to me. All part of the character it seems. This pic may show it better.

    Not a big fan of blue guitars but that one looks perfect. I'd rock that one proudly.

    At the bottom of your original post there should be an 'edit post' button with a pencil icon to the left.

    I don't have that option. Do I not have sufficient privileges?

    Edit - Sorted!
