    Several months ago Premier Guitar Magazine sent us a beat up old CE and wanted to see what we could do with it. What we did was a complete "off the frame restoration", including new pickups, new electronics, V-12 refin on the body and new 'barely there' neck finish, refret, tuner conversion, new bridge, etc. When we completed the project, we shipped it back to them and they were thrilled with the work. The last time I spoke to them, they said they were so happy with the guitar, they might make it the cover. Well guess what? We got it! I am so proud of the PTC crew. Not only are they amazing at their jobs, they are amazing guys and it's a real pleasure being associated with them.

    Article is now available online: http://www.premierguitar.com/Magazine/Issue/2013/Mar/PRS_Makover_Blasphemy_or_Alchemy.aspx

    Thanks to Ben and the entire Premier Guitar team for giving us this opportunity to show what we can do!

    Thanks Guys

    There is a 7 page article inside the magazine with plenty of photos, but it hasn't hit news stands yet and I don't want to steal their thunder by posting pics. I probably shouldn't have posted picture of the cover yet, but I was so excited I got carried away. :) I will post pictures and a link as soon as Premier releases the info to the public.
