    I didn't know PRS makes one of these?

    Caught this on the Elderly Guitar website. I didn't know PRS makes one with a bigsby. Anyone know if this is really an original or a customized guitar?

    I think I remember looking at that very same guitar at my local Guitar Center a few weeks back.

    Looks like a cross between a Starla and a Semi Hollow.

    it's a limited run model, that's why they don't list it on their website, so they're probably rare birds to find.

    I'm planning on replacing the stock pickups with Dragon IIs in the future.

    Is there a reason for the switch?

    Looking for something a little hotter and I think the nickel covered pickups will look nice too.

    Damn, now y'all got me thinking of the Starla pickups instead of the Dragon IIs.
