    I remember seeing a picture of this before it left the factory. I'd have to say this is one of my all time favorite prs's I've ever seen. Just a super cool guitar!

    Crazy for its sheer existence. 1 piece African Blackwood neck. So smooth and poreless it’s almost like metal.

    I have not the slightest clue what that would feel like. Even my imagination is stumped on this one.

    It’s in the rosewood family actually, perhaps the densest and hardest rosewood. Dalbergia Melanoxylon. Commonly used in bagpipes and flutes.

    Pity we can’t share, not meaningfully with words and photos at least, crazy wood in the tone sense. I know that’s not the intent of this thread, but boy is that a fascinating subject. How it happens, how it can even happen. Fascinating!

    Great reply Elvis. Good point, mother natures art and then the art of creating a musical instrument with such unique beautiful woods, Put together by the guitar makers at PRS but I would say the best guitarist ever created the world.

    I remember remarking exactly the same on this guitar before. Very unique looking!
