    Looking at changing out the pickup rings to some wood ones...cocobolo, or rosewood on this guitar. Anyone have any pics? just trying to get an idea.

    The biggest challenge I see is getting a narrow field ring in wood. I think you would likely need to send it off to someone. Other than that I’m all for it! I love the rosewood rings on my CU24

    That's where I'm probably going to outfit the Koa SSH from. Want Brazilian and he's the only one I can find that does it.

    From black plastic to curly maple. Not so curly after all, but cool looking.

    Looks cool ViperDoc!

    I noticed you flipped your neck pup back around to the normal position. Was that intentional? If so, noticeable change in full or tapped positions?

    HAH, that's an old pic. I put it back in "correctly" to find the neckflip situation later, and then I put it back the way it should be. The things we do for vanity!

    Call Customer Service. A couple of years ago when I was blacking out my Studio PRS didn’t offer them in the store. I called and asked if I could buy a pair of black NF rings, and they sold me a set.
