    Today was the first chance I've had to take nicer pictures of the new arrivals, so here we go! Finally some nicer shots of Pinky! As always specs for this beauty come first:

    They really need to up the image limit per post, this takes quite a bit longer having to separate all the pics out to 4-5 posts!
























    This one sounds and plays amazing as usual! The specs are this one are pretty unique, I haven't seen another out there that has Bonnie Pink stain on the top with natural back AND the flamed maple neck with ebony fretboard combo which is exactly what I wanted. Spec-wise, this is my ideal CU24! There was the Wood Library CU24 that I had recently with similar wood specs (but with a BRW fretboard instead of ebony) that would have been perfect but the neck carve was a Pattern Thin and apparently on the maple necks, that varies a bit and usually ends up on the thinner side for some reason according to a few dealers I talked to after I received it. This one has the "Pattern Regular" carve on it which is much more comfortable on my joints since I am still dealing with the rheumatoid arthritis issues in conjunction with the Crohn's Disease stuff it seems I have to be much more picky about neck carves these days unfortunately. Pattern Regular on a PRS maple neck feels FANTASTIC!!!

    Every inch of that one is cool!
    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.

    Pure awesome! I love that flamey maple neck. Is the hybrid hardware an artist package feature?

    Thanks guys! Despite some cosmetic stuff I noticed on this one upon arrival that wasn't disclosed previously by the dealer, I am totally in love with her! The pickups are the perfect set for the mahogany body + maple neck + ebony fretboard combo! The 57/08's in this one are a little warmer so they smooth out what could be a little too much high end, absolutely LOVE the tone! The satin finish PRS puts on their maple necks these days is just superb too!

    Yessir, hybrid hardware is one of the options on the Artist Package. I think you could order it without the hybrid hardware if you didn't want it, but I love it and it is one of the options of going AP. Looks killer, adds a nice bit of contrast IMO!
