    I didn't call 'DIBS!" 'cause when I invite myself over, I didn't want Matt to know I was there to steal his guitar - wait - did I just type that where Matt could see it?

    DOH!

"DING" that was it and I was putting in my vacation for that day. I started another post when I got done my trip .here.http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthre...te-Stock-Style So Here It Is

    Thought for sure my next PRS would be a quilt in blue. Curly in THAT color is what I'm targeting now. Shouldn't be a problem finding plenty that look like this one right? lol
    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-O
    I have a pair of questions if ya don't mind.
    Was the guitar ordered with D'Addarios or do the PSs come with D'Addarios? And if so, why don't they use their PRS strings?
    Also, was African Mahogany (Kaya? Sapele?) ordered as backwood instead of Honduran like the neck? I assume that since they use Braz, they have stocks of the real mahogany..enough to make backs? Can you get a PRS or PS PRS with a Mahogany (South American) back?

    Anyway...I think that top is probably the coolest figuring I've ever seen. I'm not a big fan of all the burled maple and all that other weird looking stuff they're using. Maybe I'm conservative and like(d) only/mostly the highly figured quilts and flames but CURLY!!! WOW!
    It's as if Mother Nature decided...I'm gonna make a tree that when Paul uses it for a guitar top, it's gonna seem like a photographic engineer (?? lol) designed it specifically to draw the eye to exactly where it should be looking! Man...an Asian company needs to photograph that top and use it as a "fotoflame" for their cheap guitars.

    Man I'd LOVE to be there everytime you open that case to show someone new. That guitar doesn't even look REAL!
    All I can say is OMG!

    This is by far the best top that has ever graced a guitar... BUT it begs for an infusion of ebony! If you are going to claim to be metal, have \m/ pickups with black hardware, you need some form of ebony (Gaboon or Macassar) on that fretboard and headstock. You might also want to consider a black burst finish on the back of the body and neck (alla PRS Boyd Burst models).
