    What species of rosewood does Silver Sky use?

    I'm about to get a new guitar, but I'm not sure if I want a maple or a rosewood fretboard. I have way more experience with maple than I do with rosewood, cause I've only ever owned one rosewood guitar, and didn't put much thought into the feel of it before it was gone. I guess I'm leaning more...

    Open grain on a rosewood neck

    I just bought a used (barely!) 2017 Private Stock 24:08 with a Brazilian rosewood neck. I've owned several PRS with rosewood (Brazilian and Indian) necks but this is the most pronounced grain I've felt under thumb - and I'm a touch concerned about it. Does this need any special treatment...

    An ode to the 513. Blind testing against some big names

    So fine folks of the PRS forum, here’s a video I have been meaning to make for a long, long time As much as I love the 594, I am a big big fan of the 513 and I genuinely think it's the best guitar most people haven’t heard of.

    Pre Factory Rosewood Fretboard Finish Repair?

    The finish on my 1989 Custom 24 rosewood fretboard has spots where years of play has created worn out spots on the fretboard. It appears to have worn through any finish that was applied by the factory. The finish is also lifting on the edges in some places. Is there a way to build up the finish...

    Ziricote Fretboard -Tone Scouting mission

    ziricote seems to be creeping into fretboards more and more. I've had my eye on several PRS guitars with ziricote fretboard. I probably would probably own one now if they had Brazilian rosewood. I've tried to do my 30 minutes of Ziricote homework. She is a beautiful looking wood,very...

    S2 fretboard quality gray splotchy not very impressive

    so I decided I want to get a mira S2, it's fantastic that the sellers can take such high quality photos of the actual guitar. I went through about 20 different S2 mira photo sets, I was shocked to see how discolored, not uniform, white, gray splotchy, open pores, fibers lifting, lack of...
