    Just saw this on PSF

    That is a very rare curly maple top. It’s not going to last 3 days at whichever dealer it’s going to. I would bring it home if I was the dealer.

    I don’t think I’d be a very successful dealer.

    Yes, kind of a quilty flame. A quame, if you will. We’re starting to get delirious in here from looking at all this sweet flamey goodness. :D We may need to start a “Favorite Quilt” thread... :)

    I figured it was pushing the envelope but reckoned it was safe enough to include. ;)

    Oh the title of this thread is a rubber one. Meant to be stretched, broken, totally manipulated to fit any shape and size.

    If we're also including Quilt tops, here's my 408. Picked it up when in NY June last year. I actually travelled from AUS to US JUST to visit the PRS factory and pickup a new guitar :D

    Very adventurous of you! Do the overhead storage compartments typically have enough room to hand carry a PRS hard case into the plane?

    Amazing! I don’t know exactly what color that is (Raspberry?), but for some reason I want to take a bite out of it. :D Alright, that’s it, Favorite Quilt Top thread incoming...

    Normally, no. I travel all the time with my guitars. I was an Aussie expat living in Manila and would frequently travel with 2 + guitars, and have never had an issue in with them checked in flight cases. In this instance I flew Etihad and was able to carry the hard case on board as I was in their suites.

    This colour is called "pomegranate". I'm told I'm lucky as it's a private stock stain, and this is only an artist model :D

    On their own they are what they are. But sometimes when you place them together, something magic happens. A particular color combo maybe...something
