    Folks, the ish just got real out here at Castillo Furtivo. Finally pulled the trigger on my first core model, a Standard. It's an older one, no longer minty fresh, and appears to have some kind of rash, but that's how I was able to afford it.

    Excellent.
    Winged tuners rock.
    Pull the strings snug when you change them out so the wings line up nice.

    Happy for you!
    That "total black" really makes the silhouette of the guitar shine ... and it's clearly the best guitar shape ever possible (apart from the headstock .. there is one which is better than that)

    So I'm digging around the web for pics of the 1986 NAMM show, and found this one. Same guitar? I wonder how many guitars PRS brought to that show.
