    NGD: '12 PRS 408MT

    Hello, this is my first post here.
    I've been an avid PRS player for the past 5 years or so. '03 Custom22 is my most played guitar, and I also own a '06 singlecut with SC250 pickups which I love.
    I've been intrigued with new PRS models, especially DGT and 408. I've tried and loved them both, but I realized I'm more into modern sound of 408, so I settled on getting a lovely 408 MT with black gold finish which I've always wanted.



    Didn't get a 10 top, but I have to say the top looks great, even more so in person.
    Can't wait to get off work to play more.

    Very nice! And for what it's worth, in most cases, I prefer an interesting non "10" for charater's sake. Congrats!!!

    Love black gold, and so want a 408. So I'm pretty jealous right now. Nice score. Where did you buy it?

    Nice score - I wouldn't sweat the 10 at all. That's a great top!

    Gorgeous!
    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.
