I have a 5708 LTD CU24 that has never been in a case and there is NO fading.
Good thread. I recently wondered if my 11 year old Modern Eagle Quatro in Charcoal Burst, seemed to fade - like the grey area looks lighter, probably.
To clearly answer the question of OP and I, I managed to remove a pickup ring to see if there’s noticeable discoloration compared to uncovered area, and finally I couldn’t see anything wrong.
Hope this helps.
That top is killer!
Charcoal? I can play!
Even came with a demon
Maybe it's just me, but I see an upside down...
I haven’t succumbed to the charcoal bug, but this dark grey hasn’t changed in ten years. It lives out of its case.
I'm seeing a ballet dancer with a vertical split
We have a bunch of Rorschach Test tops in here!
I’m just seeing a bunch of [email protected]£d [email protected]€$ !!
I have the left guitar's slightly less attractive sister:
But man does it play so sweetly!
Oh, and the "charcoal" doesn't look so brown in some lighting. Weird.
I have a couple of grey PRS's, they haven't faded at all.
This is my 2008 Charcoalburst. I've had it for 7 years now and haven't noticed any fading. It lives in a stand in my home studio
Ooh, me too, me too!
This is about 9m old, kept on a wall hanger - it doesn't get direct sunlight but the room does get light in the morning. I don't think it has changed since I got it. The photo is a little yellow though (the wall is whiter than it looks in the photo, for example).
I have no idea. I just want to post pictures of my gray guitars.
Omg guys, you're killing me and feel free to keep it up!
WOWEE!! That fade finish (what's it called?) is my all-time favorite PRS finish, next to Dragon's Breath.
Interesting... the natural "browns" in the wood show on my charcoal burst when I photograph it (like yours do towards the bottom) but in reality there is none of that brown/yellow hue - just shades of gray and black.
Right - I actually can see that yellowish/brownish tint near the bottom in person if I look hard enough! It is subtle and depends on the lighting. But yeah, the guitar looks a little darker in person than it does in that photo.
