Bangin' job getting an isle seat and paying to board early, did you have to come back through Chicago? I always hate the return trip because of the high traffic through Midway and O'hare, it seems like every plane has to make a stop here so I'm always stuck in a middle seat (not quite as tall as you but still...) and have to really lay on the charm when traveling with a guitar.
Also, I forgot to mention I used my SE gig bag. That was really nice, it performed really well.

There are only two cool ways to travel with a guitar:
1. Railroads. So you can pose with your guitar by the tracks for your...uh...CD cover...
2. Hitchhiking. So you can wait by brick walls and crossroads, and take pictures for your...um...you know...CD cover...and say, "it took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw..."
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 did a google image search and found a pic of a guitar very similar to his, except his was 3 pieces on top and had a double black coil humbucker at the bridge. I don't know why I didn't take a pic of his while I was checking it out.
I think so. It's flamey like maple. I don't recall seeing flamed alder with figuring like that before. His also had the pearloid.
I'm sure it's maple...gotta be.. Man, I'm always ragging on pick guards but for some reason I like the ones on EG's. Maybe I'll feel the same way about the other PRS with 'em in 20 years.
