    You swing for the fences and end up knocking it outta the park every time!

    That is an interesting mix of materials and I am sure the 24.5 scale balances things out a bit. Can't wait to hear more about it!

    Wow! Truly amazing. Congrats.

    I have a technical question: how in the world do they cut the backplate and trem cover to match on a ONE PIECE BODY???????

    You have every right to be proud of that one! Wow.
    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.

    Damn...now the question is, will you be playing this fine one piece beastie and how does it sound?

    PS I just heard that the PRS Museum of awesomeness has major GAS and they want it back.

    This has messed with my head for ages too. The only way I can see it working is the plates aren't actually cut out from the body, what I think happens is this:

    Back of the body is cut very straight, very accurately, with minimal finish sanding required
    The piece that you have left over is then machined down, so you're left with a very thin piece of wood, that was originally just "above" the back of the body
    This is then laminated to another piece of wood to make up the thickness of the plates
    The plates are then cut out from this laminate
    You end up with something that looks very much like the back of the body, but not exact exact (you can see a very, very tiny difference in some of the PSs with this trick)

    Then again I could be totally wrong, it's quite possible that the geniuses at PRS came up with another way e.g. right angled router bit or using lasers and mirrors...
