    I ordered the white pearloid pick guard and ivory tuners for mine. Just to be totally different, and perhaps obnoxious. If it looks cool, I'll break out some funky shoes for the pics :rolleyes:

    That’s going to rock! I wouldn’t say no to Reclaimed Limited tuner buttons, if they existed.

    Outstanding!!
    Can't wait to see it!
    After a week with mine, I wouldn't even consider going back to the stock black P/G.... (that is, until I load it with some different pups...maybe...;) )

    My RL Vela has turned into my "go to" guitar - when I have a practice with the band, or I want to run through some new ideas, or just want to try out a new amp, or whatever, I grab it...to the point where I have to consciously put the Vela away and select a different guitar (like I did today, when I wrote the music for a new song where I already had some lyrics - I grabbed the SH 277, tuned to A Std).

    As much as I want to preserve my RL Vela in like-new condition because it is such a beautiful guitar, it is going to be the one guitar that is obvious that I played and played and played.

    And I love it!

    Hmm, maybe I should find a second to keep as a case queen...

    I’m right there with you. It has been the only guitar played in the last 3 gigs and saw at least a couple of sets of action at every gig since I took delivery back when these were first released. It would be nice to have one with a PRS trem...

    Taking a page from xjbebop's playbook, I spiced mine up with pearloid tuner buttons and pick guard. Of course, no pic is complete with out shoes! I kinda like the white. Goes with the birds.

    I thought so too. Wasn't sure how it would look. The black edge on the pick guard plays a major role. I didn't feel the need to change the toggle tip or lampshades. We'll see if it's a keeper.

    This is marvelous.

    Randomly the first thing that popped into my head was "ice cream".
