Played it briefly through my Yamaha THR10C. I think it's going to do just fine. Need to hook my Two Rock up for the real deal. Sure it's not a US model, but for the price I paid I'm plenty happy with it. More later!
I'd consider getting some Fret Doctor. It won't make it black, but depending on how dry the board is it should make it look darker. And it's actually good for it!!
This is great to hear. I need to just take the chance and plan for the worst. Part of my dilemma is that I have a tremor in both hands which really acts up when attempting to use fine motor skills. If I could install it with a hammer I'd be good to go.
I bought one months ago for my PS Bahama Mama, but so far I've been too afraid to even try installing in fear that I will slip during installation and gouge the back of my guitar. I need to just get over it and do it.
And SO much easier to make a fake. That seems to be the issue with PRS, they must be very difficult to copy and look legitamate - IMHO. If you are still wondering please post pics of your guitar and I'm sure we can tell either way.
