    Cool First post - My trip to the vault last month :)

    Hey guys, first post here, long time lurker. I have these posted up at VR but I thought it would be nice to show come love here. Let me know what you think. Here are some of the build specs. McCarty body
    24 fret flamed maple neck - Santana neck carve
    DGT frets
    Braz fretboard - Changed to Cocobolo, you'll see why
    Figured mahogany back
    Flamed Top - PRSh helped me pick the top, he really didn't want to give it to me, it was between the one I selected and one that was set aside to become a collection. :0
    Inlays.... Wait and see
    408 pickups and electronics
    Compound radius fretboard 10"-14"
    Trem
    Phase III tuners
    Finish... Something new!
    Matching headstock maple veneer and truss rod cover

    I was amazed by that back. so stripey! I'm bummed about it just a little, I wanted to get matching trem cavity and electronics covers but the piece needed to be thicker for them to do that.

    That's an outfit on it own! Pink and blue argyle socks would be all I need.

    It's not for everyone, but for those who get it understand. I can't wait to show you all the inlays once we finalize them.

    I can't express enough praise for Paul Miles and his team. The color blows me away. I can't wait to see it as it comes along.
