    My god. As a Graveyard II owner, this is just amazing and the bats if anything make it super special (I like Edgar Allan Poe and Bram Stoker equally. Perhaps Bram Stoker maybe a little but more :) )

    I have been contemplating going Graveyard Red on my next PS build but since PRS doesn't allow the exact Raven's heart colour that has some purple in the fringes, I have been hesitating in the absence of knowing what it looks like in the flesh. But no more!

    The neck is definitely more figured than my graveyard II and the top is just outstanding. The missing purple hardly matters when the red is so vibrant (And trust me folks, that red is something else in the flesh)

    This has just convinced me of what I wanted to do on my PS 7 string Singlecut build (cough cough Graveyard red! )

    I was shocked by the vibrancy of the red when I first got my GY2. They are applying the dye with little to no dilution to get such a vibrant color.

    The other color I was considering was Aqua Violet glow just like the first Bats in Flight guitar ever built.
    Sadly it's one of those (like NL) I deemed too unpredictable.
    Red on the other hand, always turns out red ;-)

    They would indeed not allow anything red to purple at the time, sounds like that hasn't changed.
    I was a bit amused (and admittedly sad at the time) since there isn't anything particularly special to the GY2 top's color, it's a very easy color scheme to do.
    At the same time it's cool for GY2 owners that they want to keep this exclusive.

    I did a lot of mockups in GIMP to remap the purple to red on existing pictures of the GY2 and that looks great.
    GIMP's 'rotate colors' option has proven immensely useful to mock up color schemes.
    Even in my own pictures of the GY2, the purple often looked dark red anyways.

    Stellar build. It’s always impressive when a concept like this comes together so consistently. Surely one of a kind...Congrats.
