    Found a stunning artist relations McCarty??

    No bubbles bursted :) I highly doubted the story to begin with, just interested in the guitar itself. So, KD-Lang? Not sure if you meant that in jist (since the lack of smileys :iamconfused: )

    Found a stunning artist relations McCarty??

    It was what the original store that sold it to a previous owner told him, so unverified for sure. EDIT: I realize I forgot to put "allegedly built for..." in the OP, fixed :)

    Found a stunning artist relations McCarty??

    so, got my hooks in on this. A 2000 McCarty 10top Black Cherry. Judging by the bridge pup cavity, it's a artist relations model, allegedly built for Madonna or her guitarist (which would put this for her 2001 tour where Monte Pittman and Stuart Price handled the guitars). Serial #0 46955 Is...

    What's up with the resistor to ground on the Smokeburst schematic?

    Was looking through the various wiring schematics on the support page (because, well, I'm curious like that :D ) Came to the SMokeburst (or rather 2009 Nitro models): https://www.prsguitars.com/csc/schematics/schem08/2009_nitro_models.pdf What's up with the 3.3M resistor from the input lug...

    Far away? Mate, I live in northern Sweden. I just uploaded my design, and literally one week later it arrived in my post box. Just visit their website and get ordering :wave:

    Tip of the day: Signature custom truss rod covers

    So, I was browsing around, looking for a new trussrod cover for my new SC245 Boyd, thinking I would end up with something like a ebony, bird inlay or something. Then I stumbled onto the website of Philadelphia Luthier. They make (amongst all other things), engraved truss rod covers for a vast...

    PSNGD...before and after...meet "Yenita"

    Yeah, that thread.... honestly, I haven't been able to pull myself trough it all, I get overcome with such immense GAS it's not even funny after like 2 pages. Makes me look at my other inventory like "meh" :goodnight: Really can't afford to look into that thread too often :vroam:

    PRS SE Zach Myers Signature Review

    I do appreciate anyone taking the time to put together a demo like this, I know first hand the time and and effort that goes into demo vids, so kudos!! But, just my 5cent, a shootout like this is not helped by first playing guitar one, then talking for half the length of the video before...

    PSNGD...before and after...meet "Yenita"

    Amaaaazing! And, that bird inlay on the heel is such a classy touch! *swiping that idea for my dream PS, if that day ever comes*

    PRS SE Zach Myers Signature Review

    Camera mic placed pretty much center cone in front of an ENGL head and cab, you betcha that's going to sound harsh on YT :P

    So if everything affects everything...

    I've changed top PIO caps, and Manlius PAF's in one, marked difference (if its to the better is of course subjective). I will also rewire my new SC245 to 50's wiring, as I do think PRS use of the "standard" wiring gives a very muddy roll-off as it doesn't have a treble bleed.

    PRS SE Zach Myers Signature Review

    Thanks Corey! In my demo, the ZM is strung up with 11's (which I use on all guitars, regardless of scale length). It was quite a quick and dirty kinda demo, as I was also shooting that one-hour monster PRS shoot out, so shot this sorta in between other guitars in that demo. And yeah, ZM did...

    NGD: Welcome to the family Boyd!

    Thanks again guys, strung it up with 11's now and it SINGS! So dynamic and "woody" Had to post some indoors-pics up above to show how much the top changes when at a playing angle.

    NGD: Welcome to the family Boyd!

    Thanks guys! I'm very happy with it, it has all the character I like in a good Les Paul, but with far better sustain, resonance, playabaility, weight, freq-repsonse (the list goes on). Why anyone would choose a LP over a SC is beyond me (apart from aesthetics of course, some people put a certain...

    Sweetest Rig of all time... I dare you to do better!!!! : )

    I had a TR Reverb sig, and a Studio Pro... don't anymore. I found "my tone" and pedal platform in a 1966 Fender Showman Blackface head through a PRS 2x12 cab with Creamback 75's. I'm with you on some of the pedals though, I especially dig the Bogner Red which I use a lot for more "amp-like"...

    NGD: Welcome to the family Boyd!

    And some pics, since the colors in the vid are kinda off :) 7.9lbs, and sounds absolutely fantastic! EDIT: Just had to update with pics taken indoors from more of a "playing angle", this top is SO dynamic, and changes so much from every angle, super "3D". ALSO, I miscalculated the kg-<lbs, it's...
