Stoked to have gotten this one off 594 thinline in surf green until while I was taking these pics I dropped my silicone encased phone on the guitar while trying to move my cat out of the picture denting the front of it.

So just as a heads up these nitro over cellulose finishes are SUPER delicate (the phone fell maybe 2 inches tops) super bummed about it as I’ve barely even played the thing :/

I guess it’s still nice otherwise. Planning on replacing the hardware with gold, including phase III tuners. Thoughts???

Beautiful guitar even with the ding, If there's one thing I don't like about the modern PRS it's the studiply thin finish, my 3 pre 2007 cores are like tanks but the my 2016 McCarty and the 2016 Vela I used to - if you look at them the wrong way they seem to get dinged.

That's a cool looking finish. I dig it! I think gold would look good on it. Sucks about the dent. Just further proof that cats are the devil! :p
Yea I think I’m gonna send it to the PTC to have them “Satinize” the neck, install a bone nut and install gold 58/15s with core wiring/electronics. While it’s there gonna have them do the hardware swap to gold. Maybe amber lampshades too. Then I feel it shall be a beast!

You dropped a cell phone in a silicone case, 2" and it did that???? :eek::eek::eek:

I've had a couple legit bangs on metal guitar stands, etc with especially the NF3 and it doesn't have a mark close to that bad.

That sure is a cool guitar though!

Sweet Axe, Congrats!! Look at it this way... you've already put the first scratch on it and don't have to worry about it anymore!
Sweet top!
