    I prefer 2 piece tops but this one has a special something going on...technically not a top but a one piece body :)

    This one is giving me a “knee trembler”, but I still lust after the “crotch” (notice I didn’t say “your”)

    Ok, Paul. That’s in its own category (even if it were just a top).

    Then there’s the 1 piece body that wants to be a bookmatch:

    It's the uniqueness factor.

    One of my 594s has a one piece top.

    I must not take much notice of this 1 vs 2 pc stuff. I didn’t realize it had a one piece top until after I bought it. I had to email Jack and ask, did I just buy a guitar with a one piece top?

    Would I pay extra for a one piece top? No. Do I like it better than a two piece top? No. Do I like it less than a two piece top? No. I feel kinda like they’re all pretty nice, each one’s unique, and it’s a lot of fun owning PRSes.

    Speaking of tops, now that the DGTs seem to be nitro finished again, I’ve got a hankering for a gold top DGT. The idea of something simple is starting to appeal to me more and more.

    The attraction for me is the perceived decadence. I like to think that a huge tree that has grown for hundreds of years, and provided shelter, food, and oxygen for all earth’s creatures was fell for my guitar’s one piece top, that sits across my lap while my feet wiggle in delight in the deep fur shag of my panda skin rug while I gorge myself on bald eagle stew.

    I didn’t, but my butler did. Good help is so hard to find these days.

    The last one I had required flogging after they ignorantly inquired as to why I would wish to attach stockings to one’s kaftan!

    In my best upper crust accent, and looking down my nose....

    How terribly uncouth!

    Can’t fool me! You did it so your retainers could savor the spectacle of the flogging!
