    Making it my own

    I know the DGT is a great guitar, but it isn't quite my guitar. However, it makes a great platform.

    Here's what I started with...


    This is what it is today...






    Obviously, there was the paint job...a flat black with custom hand-painted pinstriping. I gave the artist free reign, and I like what he did. Then, I replaced the DGT pups with a set of Dragon 1s, and I wired it so they split. They are not as good split as the DGT's, but I don't play a lot of single coil stuff, and I like that they get a bit raunchier. New knobs and a new TRC, of course...
    Too many and never enough...

    That's killer. I've wanted to do a Black and Tan Von Dutch pinstripe on an old vintage cherry PRS for a long time. This hints around at that look. I like it a lot.

    The pinstripes really pop against the flat black!
    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.

    I love that! I can also vouch for how huge Dragons sound in a DGT.

    Uber banging, my man - uber banging! Nothing more needs be said. Flat black PRS sounds like a bad situation - but this disproves that.
