    These things are just as much fun to work on as they are to play. My appreciation of the design really continues to grow with time, and I'm absolutely delighted with the hardware. All I really know for sure is that one just isn't enough...

    .....a funny thing happened on the way to work today?? No, seriously....I currently own two amazing PS 594's (one I bought from Pete, and the other was an identical GOTM that is heaven), but I'm gigging a lot more these days and thought "I'd love just an all black (think "Black Beauty") production version (rather than all the beautiful candy finishes out there) to take out with me"....and there are NONE...NONE!....they're not offered?!? Until this week I spotted one at Ray Mullin Music and just had to have it (it's the very first, apparently?)...stunningly cool with a black satin finish. Modern meets vintage...can't wait for her to arrive this Thursday!

    ..."my guitar arrived a day early!!", said no one ever. But mine did...Wow UPS...right in the middle of recovery from "Irma" here in Orlando, you turned a 2-day delivery into an overnight deliver!! (and seriously, I've bought a ton of guitars over the years and none ever arrived a day early). And hats off to Amos at Ray Mullin Music for his killer service and assistance...much appreciated...this thing is stunningly cool looking and plays like a dream!

    Totally normal. You can reduce the noise by shielding the electronics cavity.

    Shielding paint is pricey, but easy to use. I don't know why PRS quit using it. The RF noise can be quite annoying.

    If you shield with copper tape, be careful because the ends will slice your fingers up.

    Question for you guys. Can these guitars along with the 58/15 LT pickups do high gain really well?

    I love how these guitars look but the low output PU have been making me curious.

    I play about 50% metal and the rest will be anything from blues to ballads.

    Any help would be appreciated as I am looking to buy one soon.

    Thanks!
