    PRS nitro finishes (DGT Nitro?) are, afaik, nitro over a poly coat. Am I correct or did I misunderstand it?
    My McCarty has V12 finish and I like it. No issues so far.

    It is so. When you wake up one day with an obscene amount of guitars, you know you have a problem. Hardest one first. Like a punch in the gut. Hoping it makes the others a little easier!

    * no offense to anyone with an obscene amount of guitars! :p Just speaking for myself!

    Exactly what constitutes obscene? Is this like a metric a$$-load or a gaggle of PRSi? Or a bloody murder?

    Bubble Porn doesn't count (only makes you think you’ve seen it).

    They had to stop using it. Turns out, the unicorns are liars.

    I heard that the EPA clamped down on PRS for exceeding the limit of “unicorn hoof” and “pixies tears” in their finish!

    Just saying....;):rolleyes:

    I think Bodia is referring to an “Imperial Shedload”!

    Kept in a floating room, 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide and 30 cubits high!;)

    However you do need to invest in the McIntosh “Ba’ hair meter”. A Scottish designed device for tiny measurements!!:rolleyes:;)

    I don't trust crows, so somewhere between the geese and an a$$-load

    Anyway, whatever the current formula is, I like it. The old stuff was fine too. I'd just like to know what changed when so I can keep furthering my PRS nerddom.

    I’m interested to know, as the website quotes v12 from 2010. Anyone who knows any info, would be great.:D

    Dude - geese is a tad short, but to use him as the low-end of a measurement comparison is just wrong! :eek:
