    I like the term "dirty quilt" for wildly irregular figured patterns like that. I have a guitar which fits that description. A cross between flame and quilt with an irregular pattern. I dig it.

    I like that term too. If PRS thought of it first, they would have charged me an extra $500!

    It's definitely not flame, too much non-straight figuring. I like to refer to them as "Flilt" tops.
    Congrats on a great guitar!

    For those of you following the other thread regarding 57/08 vs Tremonti pickups. I did a bunch of A/B tests between the two and decided to keep the 57/08's. for the record, I would have kept whichever pickups were already installed, so it's somewhat a matter of convenience.

    They are both great pickups, what it came down to was the 57/08 is more articulate. I loved how warm the tremonti's sound, but I can emulate it by rolling back the tone knob when using the 57/08's. I never touched the tone knob before, but when I heard how they warmed up, that was enough for me. This isn't to suggest that the 57/08's aren't warm already, they are, it's just that the tremonti's are especially warm. You can always cut treble, but it's hard to add treble.
