    Recently got a preloved 2017 Standard S2. The pictures on the internet made it look gold. Once I got it, it looked more copper, almost rosegold depending on the light.

    Some more google searches and I now think it is Desert Metallic. However, when I pop the pickguard, there is a tag that says Driftwood Beige.

    Emailed PRS Cust Serv w the serial number and they have has it listed as a "Custom Color"

    Is there an an actual Driftwood Beige or does PRS factory use an internal color name and changes it to a different name when marketing the guitar?

    Will try to post some pics later

    I think the forum requires 3 posts from you before the software allows you to show pics. So, two more and you should be GTG. I'm sure there are a lot of people here waiting to see those pics and someone will probably be able to shed some light for you

    PRS are very fond of naming colours. I think they even an intern for that.

    That said, colours are wonky. They sometimes fade funny (I have two green guitars that started out life as blue); they sometimes change because different batches; just all sorts of reasons.

    The important thing is that you like the colour of the guitar you bought. Enjoy it. You won. Be happy.

    Or don't.

    I am too stupid to figure out how to post a pic, but here is a link showing the inside cavity tags

    I actually bought the guitar thinking it was gold. It looked gold(ish) in the online pics. However, as I have learned, this one likes to change colors a little depending on the light.

    I like the color (not love yet) but don't hate it. Time will tell....

    Probably a “Sprayer’s Choice”.
    The painters get to decide some finishes that aren’t listed.

    I really think you are right on this. Especially when they said they do not keep track of "Custom Colors" (guessing for the S2 line only and not Core)

    I've heard of some Core "custom color" guitars that PRS has no more info on the color.

    That’s a bitching color no matter what they call it. I have a moss green S2 Custom 24 guitar from 2017. It was the only one I had ever seen. The next year, they did a few more. Enjoy your guitar and it’s uniqueness.
