    NGD x3 x4? Don't hate me, I have an illness

    So this time only one is a PRS, I'll save her for last.

    First up is a neat little guitar. It's a Charvel Custom Shop. They made ten of this version and this is number 1. You can tell by the airbrushed number on the forehead of a skull a few inches behind and below the Floyd Rose.









    The second is a Lester with a decent quilted top, plays really well too so I couldn't pass it up.








    The last is one I've been hunting for some time. This is the core of a rebuild inspired by a fellow forum members 305 based "Raven". This has a date with the PTC for some TLC and I can't wait! The covered 57/08 is by far the best sounding one I've ever heard and sadly that's being removed....but all for the greater good, I'll find a guitar to plant that pickup in I'm sure.



    It's a mint condition used black SAS.....for now.

    Very nice, all three are great looking.
    Looks like a very nice top on the LP, and I really like that it does not have a pick guard.
    I do not care from them on LPs.
    Had one on my old '73 Deluxe, and very glad that PRS does not put them on their single cuts.

    An illness? Looks like you got a fever, and the only prescription is more guitars!

    Congrats! Beautiful stuff.

    The sides are airbrushed and look 10x better in person! The Custom Shop EMG sounds ok, but this guitar needs better than ok plastic pickups. There will be a metal Bare Knuckle in there soon, something etched methinks.

    The Charvel is mental - well done.

    The Les Paul is more my style and also excellent.

    I'm also a SAS fan and looking forward to what it becomes.

    That is badass! Could you post a closer shot of the sides by any chance please? EMGs can be cool but definitely agree that etched BKPs would be a step in the right direction!

    if you email BKP in the UK and show the guitar, you might get lucky and they might do something extra custom for you... They are good like that
