    A little wood with a whole lot of attitude!

    I love my first USA made PRS, a 2013 SC245 with a Boyd Burst finish. However, I have never been a fan of plastic, and didn't think the chrome tuners suited a guitar with such a classic vintage look. I also wanted to add something to tie in the top with the black sides and beautiful burst back...










    BRING ON THE WOOD! Ebony tuner buttons from PRS but sadly they don't yet sell any other wood parts, but why should private stocks have all the fun? John Guilford (pickuprings.com) provided me with a set of ebony pickup rings and an ebony toggle switch. Now this guitar is P E R F E C T... her name is Ember, enjoy!

    i have the boyd burst P22 and it is very nice enjoy. I like what you did with the knobs, I will have to do the same. The chrome does take away a little from the over all aesthetics.


    I like surprises!!!

    Digging the tuner buttons, and the switch tip.

    But...I like the ivory colored rings better on that guitar.

    Beautiful axe either way, though!
