    Well, there was some inquiry, but it belongs to someone else. Nice top.
    I have some BB guitars, but not PRS (yet).

    "Roasted Maple Neck"?? Is this just a coloration thing...or something else? Cause by the pictures it just looks like a highly figured Mahogany neck blank...

    It's actually a maple blank that is literally roasted. Typically at 300 degrees, or more, in a kiln. This process vulcanizes the wood, making it stronger yet lighter in weight. The big advantage is that after this process, the wood becomes much less susceptible to moisture and climate changes, resulting in a more stable and predictable piece of wood. This is great for necks, especially, and will minimize need for adjustments between seasons and different weather conditions. An extra bonus from this process is that, while stabilizing figured maple, which is typically not so stable, it also greatly enhances the color and figuring in the wood.
