    NUGD: I’ve gone full clownburst

    Yeah, I think since it’s a classic finish it’s been copied and probably done poorly on a lot of cheaper guitars over the years, hence the bad rap. Have to agree with most on this thread though that PRS does it right!

    NUGD: I’ve gone full clownburst

    Thanks all! I'm definitely enjoying the look so far. That's what I'm banking on! I also feel less worried about scrapes and dings on a more traditionally colored/finished guitar for whatever reason, not sure why that is. Something about a more vintage finish looking even better with some light...

    NUGD: I’ve gone full clownburst

    I used to consider myself more of a fan of more interesting, modern colorways on my PRSi, but the times they are a-changin’ I suppose. My workhorse recently has been a charcoal purple burst Custom 24 35th anniversary which I love, but I’ve been eyeing guitars with the same layout (35th or 24-08)...

    NGD - Finally picked up a core!

    Wow, that is straight up stunning! Plus being satin with a killer top and color, outline birds, and rosewood neck? Killer. Congrats!

    NGD 594 SC Semi-hollow

    Was watching this exact specimen at one point before I decided to go with an HBII - great snag and a beauty of a guitar!

    It's Winter ..time to pull out those quilts ...

    My Custom 24 Floyd - quilt reminiscent of either hot lava or cheetos, you decide! Close enough to a cheetah-print 80s hair metal machine for me...

    PRS McCarty 594 Hollowbody II being discontinued? Also, is this a good color?

    Possibly! That would be neat, but I'm inclined to think the 594 hollowbody would keep with the rest of the 594 line, implying maybe there are some changes coming to the stock pickups across all the 594s. Would be cool if the non-594 HBII got a pickup update too if the 58/15LTs are being deprecated!

    A new pickup??? Really curious what that might be...

    PRS McCarty 594 Hollowbody II being discontinued? Also, is this a good color?

    I sincerely hope that's not true - even though I have an HBII Piezo already I'm definitely a fan of the 594 layout.

    PRS McCarty 594 Hollowbody II being discontinued? Also, is this a good color?

    Great classic-looking color IMO - almost like a violin. Where did you hear it's being discontinued?

    Next arrow for the quiver?

    I ended up springing for the HB II! Maybe a Santana is further on down the line when the itch needs scratching again.

    Hollowbody II question from a newbie PRS lover

    I literally just bought a 2006 HBII Piezo today - curious how you like yours and what you dislike about the archtop pickups. I think the McCarty refers to it sharing the characteristics of the McCarty (non-594) model - volume, tone, 3-way switch, 22 frets, 25-inch scale length, thicker neck...

    I hope so - don't let your HBII dreams be dreams! Good eye - according to the seller it is a 2006 artist package! I'm very curious to see how I like the McCarty Archtop pick-ups as there seem to be mixed feelings about them on this forum. Very stoked about the look because I've been fiending...

    Well, thanks all for your inputs - ultimately I decided to go for a HBII Piezo for the tonal variety it offers and because I found a stunning specimen for a very tempting price. And now we wait!

    Next arrow for the quiver?

    Uh oh, why not? I haven't gotten to play mine much because it lives at my in-laws' place, but it's probably with the Cu24 35th as the ones I'd consider offloading for something new just because they're more jack-of-all-trades. Looking for something from the core line-up in the $2-3.5k range so...

    Next arrow for the quiver?

    It's not! But the swap from the stock Dragon IIs to the 57/08 & 59/09 IS based on your (and others') recommendation of that combo from a year or so ago!

    Next arrow for the quiver?

    Thanks for the thoughts so far! I think I'm leaning towards the HB II Piezo just for the tonal variety, but like the suggestions for a soapy or potentially something with the narrowfields (NF-53 perhaps?). That said, I have zero information about the santana but have heard good things. Anyone...

    Next arrow for the quiver?

    The old GAS itch has surfaced once again and I find myself compulsively browsing reverb for another PRS that rounds out my current collection. Looking for thoughts and votes on what should come next! Current collection for reference: - Custom 22 stoptail w/ 57/08 neck & 59/09 bridge - Custom 24...

    NGD Private Stock McCarty 594 in Bohemian Blue Smoke Burst

    Good god man, that is possibly the most beautiful guitar I've ever laid eyes on. Just unreal!
