    NGD: Pernny, Brazilian, and Gold?

    Well, I just received this guy a few days ago and I'm pretty excited. I lusted over this thing when it was new about 3 years ago. It ended up bouncing to my good man Mark who was willing to part with it. I almost chickened out on the deal, but I'm glad I stuck with it and Mark being the awesome guy he is was willing to be patient. I've always wanted a guitar with a Pernambuco neck, but never got the opportunity. Specs are pretty close to what I would order for a guitar like this, but I would never request inlays made of actual gold. I feel a little pompous that this guitar has them, but that's the way the dealer ordered it .

    Quick spec run down: Private Stock SC58, Sandstorm Fade, Pernambuco neck, Brazilian board, gold MOP birds with 10 karat gold outlines.

    Tone report: I've played a few perny necked guitars at the shop close by and I've always dug the way they sound. It's difficult to describe, but it's almost like a cross of maple and mahogany. The sustain is ridiculous. Even when played clean it just rings forever. This guitar is no different, but it's hard to give a real tone report in the limited time I've spent with it.

    Spec sheet:



    Some terrible pics for now, will get better ones tomorrow.






    With its partner in crime.

    What a fine specimen. In all of Mark's guitars, that one ranked in the top 3 for me.
    Too many and never enough...

    Jaw-dropping...congrats!!! Love the look of the pair....I'm sure they're as much a pleasure to play as they are to look at.

    It's partner-in-crime, is that a Raspberry Dragon's Breath finish?

    The Sandstorm Fade SC58 with Pernambuco neck is one of my favorites from Markie's collection. Congratulations on snagging such a killer PRS. Pernambuco necks rock!

    Oh my goodness, I absolutely love that one. Wow!
    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.

    Absolutely sick! I have always wondered what tonality a pernambuco neck imparts. Between maple and mahogany is a pretty good place to be!
