    NGD - Something Ultra Faded Blue Jean This Way Cometh....

    It's my third Ted SC245 and this one is truly special (arent they all?). I'm a sucker for anything PRS stained blue.... . Wood Library with IRW neck and Brazzy fret board:

    Thanks, all! I spent the day playing this Ted and my 2010 Ted. Both are phenomenal guitars. I did notice some slight differences in the model years. Both being IRW Teds, I assumed they would be pretty much identical (with the exception of finish colors.). After closer inspection, a couple of things stand out.

    The pickup rings on the '13 match the binding and the pickup height adjustment screws are counter sunk. The bridge has the brass inserts ala my Paul's Guitars. A couple of minor changes but all are well received.

    Other than the '13 having a Brazzy board and 57/08 neck pup (the '10 has a 59/09) they are from the same ilk.

    Both are so resonant! Sonically, they are very close. The '13 seems to have more pronounced highs and maybe a bit more clarity. Does that have something to do with the bridge or just the sum of the parts? Hmmmm....

    Brandon and the boys at Willcutts picked some great woods for these... The wood library guitars are truly spectacular instruments.

    Congrats man...that one was the pick of the litter from their second WL run. Which one do you have from the first run (I happen to also own an IRW SC from the 1st run)?

    That's gotta be one of the best looking blue PRS guitars I've seen!
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
