    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!

    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.
