    Yes, very cool. He really knows his PRS stuff. And basses. I've never seen so many over the top basses before - which I guess is his thing. I use to play string bass in an an orchestra (high school/college) many years ago, always liked it. But just enjoy the guitar more.

    I also saw that and was like HOLY POOP I want that. Rock the crap outta that blondie!

    FWIW a few years back I used to name all of my guitars. In my MS Excel inventory sheet. I would sometimes go to baby name generator websites for appropriate color-themed names. If I get to that point again, I may disappear...again ;)

    That is interesting. Very textured, is that all from the paint itself? Looks like gold leaf or crinkled aluminum foil wrap. Not sure I've seen that before.

    I really dig that antique white with natural back and binding too! That is another "classic" / "understated" look!

    Super cool!

    Did you replace just the saddles or the whole bridge with the Mann one(s)? Why did you go for the more strat looking saddles?

    It’s an Excel trem with GraphTech saddles, @John Beef gave them to me so they’re special.

    Congrats - I dig that color combo!

    As for bolt on SC, I believe other builders have done that - TA Bobcat comes to mind

    The real key to SC style guitars is trems :)

    Thanks for all the kind words. I'm kinda pissed I'm at work right now, when I'd like to be home rocking out with Betty!

    So, when you pick up that CE, do you say “Get ready, Betty”?

    Celebrate! Throw confetti!
