Seeing as there wasn't a proper PS Friday post, and ya'll seem like a splendid bunch, I thought I'd share my collection of joy and their stories. As I am wont to be verbose, feel free to skip the exposition. First off, my one and only for years and years. As I mentioned in my intro post, I ordered it from Chuck Levin's back in 1990, and while it wasn't quite what I thought it was going to be, it's never let me down. I had seen the first generation foil finishes in the shop, but by the time I went back to order one, they were no longer there. I tried to describe the finish to the sales person, but they kinda just said, 'Oh, that's metal flake' So I got this PRS Special, an all mahogany, HFS/Vintage, rosewood board, 24 fret, wide-thin neck, Trem up-route shred machine: "Gold hardware", I thought, "that's a great idea!" Why, Paul, why did you take so long to fix the tuner attachment problem? The D/G tuners never would fit to gather correctly. I've seen this on a LOT of these. Hard to see, but it says "Bob" in there, who's Bob? I hope he's still there and sees this pic and know I think of him every time I change strings. Also, do they still write the SN in the trem area? My other trem PRS doesn't have this.
