1. Modern-metal-oriented core CU24 with following default specs; hardtail bridge, ebony board, flatter radius fretboard, thinner maple neck (quarter sawn, roasted preferred), jumbo frets (stainless steel is preferrred), uncovered \m/ pups or choises of some hot BKP pups.
2. SE 245 with 2 piece bridge like SE Mira.
3. This one is not about variation, but rather improvement. Some blue colors get fade drastically over time even though it's a Private Stock. PRS should SERIOUSLY consider new blue stain formula so solve this problem.
Huge DH fan here. Need a Nuno sig, too.
Two words. 594 trem
I couldn't possibly agree with this more. I've seen some beautiful tops only to have a black back (back of neck as well), which somehow ruins it for me completely.
I don't know how it's possible to know what the colour of the back would be, but it seems more of the red/yellow top finishes get a natural back finish.
Custom 24 SE with separate volume and tone for each pickup.
A Core Standard 24, with stoptail.
This doesn’t float your boat?
They had one from 2011-2014 or so. They were exactly like the PS models. There was also an Artist version. I had one with a cocobolo back and sides, with an Adirondack spruce top, and it was wonderful. I replaced it with a PS to be able to spec a maple body.
Shoulda kept it and bought the maple also, but I was young and foolish. Now I take Sergio’s advice to buy and never sell.
See post #5
DH is a "Giant" player. Back in the day he was sporting an amber coloured custom with stoptail and maple neck. Looked killer imho.
Back in his “innocent days?” I’m a believer.
I used to own one of his powder blue standard 24s.
I would, like others, really like any of the models with the fancy fronts or 10 tops, but with a solid mahogany back without any stain other than to seal. So many guitars have painted backs that hide the wood. As an example, high end Gretsch Duo Jets, have beautiful metallic colors or plain colors, but the backs are beautiful exposed Mahogany. That would be a nice touch.
I've got 3 Flying V's from the Gibby camp that I'd happily swap out for PRS Flying V's (if the neck and fret specs were deemed to be to my liking.)
More solid colors (especially powder blue, and different metallic finishes)
Hollow body II Trem
CU24 stop tail
This thing........ with racing stripes.......
Besides the 594 trem already mentioned ....... 594 double cut and single cuts with wrap around bridges and Ted heads. I want the 594 Teds.
Just saw it
An HXDA with switchable tone stack between HXDA and Super Dallas in black paisley and tiger eye front panel. Bet you didn’t see that comin’...
@11top here's DH with Giant in a great old studio video. Played this stuff so much I think I wore out the CD. In fact, when I walked into the Hollywood Mesa/Boogie store in 1990, they were playing this album!
swamp ash with three single coil pickups and a roasted maple thin neck.
