    I took a look at that thread - always nice to be reminded about how close-minded some people can be, and how some people "know" what happened even though their story has no relation to reality.

    Other than that, what was the issue?

    I must confess I've definitely a "hardcore EVH fanboi". I've owned pretty much all of the EVH guitars, except for the striped Charvels. So, I do understand what those guys like about Ed's early tone. But...

    I'd LOVE to get my greasy, little mitts on the PRS EVH. If Hans would sell her to me, I'd put on an old school Floyd with a big brass trem block and a Duncan EVH pickup (or 78...whatever they're calling it now).

    I want it.

    Seriously.

    I started with ebony tuner buttons. I mounted them to some old SE tuners and a large paint stick. Then I sanded them and cut some masking tape to a width that I thought might work.

    The first coat of paint is white primer.

    Then I stripped off the tape to expose the black ebony. After that, I added more tape in different widths.

    Then I added several coats of a candy red.

    After it dried (for over a month) I sanded them with 800 grit and added 5 coats of clear.

    I kind of want to say that is way too much work, but it looks so cool I have to say it was time well spent.

    Awesome guitar and story!

    I love single hum guitars. I stay on the bridge pickup 90 percent of the time anyway as mostly I go for a chunky yet twangy tone. I'm more of a rhythm guy so I dig that but I play a lot of leads on the bridge pickup too. I have a single hum guitar with a SD JB in it that I use live in Eflat for Bob Seger's "Her Strut". I'd love to see a single humbucker guitar in the PRS lineup sometime!
