    This concludes everything I've transferred over from the old house. Looking forward to what people post from this point out.

    I'd like to see more 513 style birds from BRW 513's as well as early 305 guitars.

    Just found this one from a user called "Soundperf".

    It's a 513 Swamp Ash with a maple neck, rosewood board, and modern (513) birds. Love it!!!

    Does anyone know - are PS etched birds always made from mammoth ivory? I guess they are a pretty hefty upcharge?

    The most common materials for etched birds are gold or mammoth. Gold is a very expensive option, Mammoth less so. Seems they dig them out of the Siberian tundra all the time, so the material is not that expensive.

    Cool, thanks. I know mammoth ivory itself is surprisingly plentiful, I guess I just reckoned the actual time spent etching them would drive the cost up quite significantly - how much I suppose depends on whether they are done by hand or by machine, anyone know the answer to that?

    I don't know the cost of etching or how they do it, but since no one else has posted a shot of the plain mammoth ivory, here is the un-etched mammoth ivory inlay on my McCarty Singlecut taken when it arrived at Jack's shop; I like the simplicity and natural beauty of it. The wingtips of the Eagle don't appear to be etched, they appear to be a different piece of ivory, but honestly that detail is a guess on my part:
