    Is it? I do love it, I like the contrast with the back. I love the vintage vibe and feel of this guitar

    Yup. Here’s one of its siblings. This was one of four cover gals when the run came out. Though I went against the grain and had it glossed up.

    Mine is a lot glossier than when I got it, specially the neck that is now polished smooth through use. But I kinda like how it's got shiny patches that show in the areas that get wear.
    Here's a video of mine from world guitars

    Forever captured in a video! Nice one. I love the special runs of the past. The wood seemed more exotic. Peruvian Mahogany, Pernambuco etc.

    Although that said....there’s really only two kinds of Mahogany that is regarded as genuine Mahogany - Honduran Mahogany (swietenia macrophylla) and Cuban Mahogany (swietenia mahogani). Both are restricted by CITES (Appendix II).

    Well. there's no yellow in this thread so you've forced my hand. One of these days the sun will come out again and I'll take fresh pictures.

    I spent ages trying to decide if my first PRS should be a red flame or a tortoise quilt. I went with flame. 13 years later, my flame decided I should have a quilt.

    One piece top. Cousin of Veinbuster's black one.

    Ok, I know this is cheating, but the gold leaf does give off a little quilt effect

    What a beauty! I only got a 305 in the last month or two, but it has quickly become a favourite. It's so versatile. Here's something i wrote the other day: https://soundcloud.com/rnodern/making-of-a-prog-song
