    It's just a really nice piece of tubular quilt. Excellent book match and it's not too easy to find pieces where the quilt is super wide like that. Great piece of wood!

    I'm not a quilt guy, but this one is really stunning. I also fully endorse your pickup selection!

    I'm pretty sure that you can get the black pickup rings for the narrow 408's from any dealer. Black hardware on the other hand is a total Private Stock thing & something that I had to wait a decent amount of time for since they had to place an order for it.

    That's good. Thanks. I wonder, though, (the thought just hit me) does that bridge have the little brass inserts where the string touches? I saw one on eBay for $200 and it said it was unopened, original, and all that, but it didn't look quite as nice as yours. I may have to give PS a call and ask. :top:

    Edit: Oh, wait. Looking closer, does yours have adjustable saddles? Hard to see the detail with these old eyes...

    Since I was lucky enough to get one of the P245's that Brian put together during his latest Wood Library run I have another offering for this thread (I love that Brian posts his library trip raw wood selections):
