    Brushed Covers

    as the PTC is not really helpful in selling brushed covers as replacement
    there is just one chance - brush them by yourself!

    this is absolutely not difficult, but you should act carefully not to rub through. :lol:
    i took a coarse brushing sponge.....
    the result looks perfect and it is a good alternative for shiny or "vintaged" covers.
    please ask some questions if there are!

    cheers

    I have to say that I love brushed covers. I think it's a great move on the part of PRS.

    Yours look great too. Congrats.

    Re: Brushed Covers

    Looks great. Any tips on doing this? Brush in one direction, sides or top first? Am I over thinking this?

    Re: Brushed Covers

    i brushed the sides first to get a feeling for.
    then i went fore and backwards with the sponge
    and let the middlefinger lead the distance on the sides.
    i guess it it easier to brush in one direction.
    brush first one half and turn the cover - care fore the edges!
    good luck and let me see the result.
