    Lets see what PRS players drive for cars/motorcycles!

    My daily driver for the last 19 years.. Best vehicle I've ever owned period! It's never been in the shop for repairs and will clean up to almost new condition. With a flat head 5 cylinder and 5 speed manual transmission I get 21-22mpg all day long.. too bad GM was forced to stop manufacturing...

    PRS SE Swamp Ash Special!

    Locking tuners are a great upgrade! I wasn't having any problems with tuning stability but decided to put lockers on my SAS anyway and found a perceived improvement in tone, not too mention they look great.. lol

    Update- pics! So I did something again.... upcoming NGD... bought a Violet PRS SE Quilt top CU24 blind with no pics.

    Your probably safe with the Quilt, I'd never buy a flame top sight unseen.. be sure to share pictures when you get it! Charles

    NGD Silver Sky SE Maple

    love it! I'm shopping hard for another SE while the sale is on and I'm going to have to try one of these out!! luckily I have a PRS dealer within walking distance:) My #1 is a 96 Inca Silver Fender Strat and it's one of my favorite colors. Charles

    Quilted or not?

    Looks like Flame, Figured and Quilted to me.. I have always called the figured "Tiger striped" and depending on the exact piece of wood IMO it's the prettiest.. yours is gorgeous! Nice score.. Charles

    Hollow Body Neck

    I'm not sure why they list these as wide/fat? I've been shopping for a HB and was expecting a neck similar or larger than my McCarty, but they feel closer to a pattern thin to me.

    SAS Spa Treatment!

    Thanks.. I'll have to check out John's bridge and trem block, figuring since I got the guitar at such a great price I can justify dropping a few coins into it. Charles

    Music Nomad vs. StewMac nut files....

    Not sure about nut files but Stew recently reduced the prices of a lot of their tools some of them dramatically! That being said I actually prefer the Music nomad nut files for my occasionally tweaking, the smaller size and built in handle make them easy to hold and help me produce accurate cuts.

    Possible new PRS owner?

    Welcome to the forum.. The SE DGT is hard to beat, IMO probably the best overall SE yet! It will cover a lot of ground and like you I love the tobacco sunburst.. Charles
