    Kind of?? More of an homage to Holcomb. Or a 594 dressed up for Halloween as a Holcomb. Or (insert other simile here).
    594 specs, but with Holcomb woods and pickups and coloring.
    In any event, I love it!

    Not only that, the carve is like a strip show, she doesn’t reveal her true beauty until the end!:D:eek:

    There's just something special about a 594, though mine shares a lot of time with my 85/15 equipped Custom 22 these days.

    That is true as well!!! I believe some of the difference was improvement after the carve was performed.

    This guitar deserves an extended honeymoon. I’m sure in time you will get back to others, but even then this one might get a larger share of your attention. When I got my dragon, I didn’t even look at buying another guitar for years, but I still played the other 4 PRS, my Les Paul and my classical.

    The knobs feel amazing and accurate. I would change out the knobs of the rest of my guitars out for these, if the style fit better.

    The guitar is awesome.

    I’ve gone ga-ga over my private stocks, but I play my cores as much, and rotate them for practice. Obviously, for sessions, I use the one most appropriate to the song (sometimes that means I just wing it).

    enjoy that thing!

    Can you post a close up of those knobs?

    I may want to track those down.

    Well, I have a solution, send it to me and you'll be forced to play the other. My adress can be sent in private message.
    No need to thank me, I'm happy to be of service.

    That looks great!

    Is the flame maple neck glossy? From the pics it looks more satin - the only thing I'm not in love with with my PRS is the glossed painted neck.

    Yes. The whole thing is satin.

    So you swapped pickups from whatever were in the PS to Duncans?

    I had already purchased the Duncans, and they were sitting around waiting for the right guitar. I ordered this to be THAT guitar.

    I ordered this guitar with Dragon 1 pickups, knowing I wanted those for ANOTHER guitar. The Dragon 1s have been put into a Satin Black 594.
