    So.... I literally had a dream about building a Private Stock guitar last year. I even spoke with the PS boys at the EXP about it. They were all scratching their heads. Why? Because I wanted a Paisley covered guitar. The actual cloth they use on the amps. I didn't want any clear coat on it. Nuthin'! If it gets dirty or sweaty, so be it. I wanted amp knobs on it. I had a ton of ideas. So, we talked & I talked to Morgan Guitars & he talked to PRS & everybody was still scratching their heads. Wondering if the tone would suffer. Will it get dirty. Stuff like that.
    So, I thought I'd take down a notch & try it on an SE. So I got in touch with Shawn & he was down with it from the get-go. I was gonna keep it a secret so I would have the 1st PS Paisley, but because of my current situation I don't see a PS in my immediate future. So here's my idea made possible by the boys in the PTC. Thanks to Shawn & 'da boys!!

    It started life as a standard SE 245.

    Scott spend a lot of time making sure the fabric laid on the surface without any wrinkles or creases. He also made sure the fuzzy edges didn't fray.

    We toyed with different hardware and knob options

    But found this to be the best. We pulled the studs and inserted US stud wells and US bridge and studs

    Very cool.
    How do you clean it, with a vacuum cleaner?

    Any vacuum will do, but the brush must have bristles made of the finest Russian sable

    You burned the edge of the fabric, so it doesn't get destroyed?
