    Oh yeah, one more thing (got distracted last post and submitted before finishing thoughts...):

    That violet looks nicely "faded" (for lack of a better word) like Armando's Amethyst (which was a 2013 color?) or even the Amethyst found on SEs this year. Or is that just the lighting and it looks a bit darker in person?

    Are you sure that's not Pomagranate?

    She's a hair darker in person under indirect lighting (these were taken on my deck around late-morning/mid-day, so fairly bright/direct light by that time of the day) but these two pics are pretty close to the color in person:





    I really dig the finish. It's almost like they stain it with PRS' "Blueberry" finish and then sand it back, then apply Armando's Amethyst (and maybe sand that back slightly?) over top, so it leaves it with that cool almost-faded look. I've seen a lot of variation in the "Violet" stains across the new models that have had it so far, and some where the blue tints underneath are more "splotchy" than "matching" undertones/highlights, so that was part of what really attracted me to this one. There was another P24 Trem with a nice top in the same finish (but no korina neck/ebony board) but the blues weren't as evenly-distributed over the top so I decided to grab this one instead.
