    PRS Gold Top Query

    Can anyone weigh in on this Gold Top. Is this a legit USA PRS ? Only seen the S2 and SE in all gold. The machine heads look cheap and the serial looks suspect. I think the serial translates to early 90s which does correspond however...

    Hey hey! A bit of an oddball question, but I'm wondering if anyone here has used Dragon I's in a non-PRS guitar - specifically, a Superstrat style. I know the Dragons were built for the Custom 22. I picked up a set for a decent deal, in the hopes of eventually landing a PRS guitar to put them...
