    Congratulations. Was this one of those advertised just recently on the PRS Dealers thread?

    It sounds phenomenal. Better than I had hoped. I usually either a Fender Twin Reverb or a Fuchs ODS50

    It's black gold burst. I guess the difference is the "burst" has the binding.

    That's exactly as I understand it too. A wrap is called a 'wrap' because it wraps around the edge of the guitar where as a burst is only on the top and has a binding (faux or natural) separating the top from the sides/back..

    Not to be confused with a burst wrap, that is very messy!

    Or a infected wrap that ended up giving you a bursted butt. That's REAL damn messy, but I digress - please pardon me as I excuse myself . . . .

    That is indeed a real beauty, @althea !

    EDIT: So I knew/know a lady by the name of Althea. It is usually a female name, but your profile shows you as male. Just curious, since the ladies are under-represented here...
