    Thanks guys. I will try to get better pictures up in the next few days, especially of the bird inlays. They have an abalone interior with a black onyx border.

    Love the striping on the back of the body. The lighting off the birds looks great.

    Here are some better pics taken by the PRS dealer I bought it from. They came out better than my pics taken with my iPhone.



    New bird style: abalone and black onyx.
