    Website specs say rosewood... One of the namm vids they said ebony... Which is it?

    Trying to decide which to buy since the only one in the area to try is a lifeson(which I do like)

    I can tell you I have an A20 and A30 in my store. By looking at both guitars the A30 fretboard and bridge are both much darker and ebony like compared to the A20 .
    But from my experience w/ PRS that does not necessarily mean they are ebony, I have had some very dark rosewood come in my store before..
    The 2016 catalog and website both state rosewood in the specs for the A30 so I would have to trust PRS...

    What do you think of the two of them? As I said, a Lifeson is the only one I've had my hands on so far.

    A30 says ebony in description on a major internet web site dealer. I'll have to look at the PRS page info. Maybe ask Shawn, he may know.

    PRS Product website says Ebony for both.

    The A20 has a RW board. The website doesn't mention what the bridge material is.
