    Anyone Swap Out Their Faceplate?

    Curious if anyone's done it? Does PRS offer replacements or did you build yours?

    I've been a little intrigued by the idea of a matching gig rig.

    Thanks!

    From what I was told by my favorite dealer
    You can change out the faceplate, but that the turn around for the new faceplate can be a good while (I was quoted 4 months turnaround)

    I had this one made at PRS for my Two Channel C:



    A friend made this one out of some of my maple. I later gave it to Markie, and it's on his C:



    And I had the same friend make this one out of a piece of my claro burl:

    What's the name of the stain on the paisley head? My Custom 50 has the charcoal colored stain and I wouldn't mind changing it out to the same color as yours. Looks sharp!
