Here is my new girl, an EG II HSH in Pearl White. Scored for $600 USD (about $900 AUD for me) with original PRS case. Being 1992 it has a one piece Mil-Com trem and wing tuners with the Schaller logo on the back and smaller PRS logo on the headstock. One caveat, the dreaded neck pocket cracking. Hard to tell if it's just finish or if it runs into the wood structurally too. No creaking on cracking noises when I yank on the neck though the pitch does dive down a quarter step when moved from normal playing position to facing with strings down to the ground. Doesn't really pose a problem when played in normal playing position and I don't tend to be heavy handed with my left hand pushing or pulling the neck. The neck on this beast is wonderful, a little skinnier than the wide fat profile I'm used to on my CE's with maybe a little more meat and depth as well, I actually prefer this one. Did EG's sometimes come with a regular neck profile, the measurement I took at the nut certainly lines up with that spec for a regular profile? I played it at a gig last night, plays like a dream, it felt like I was playing 10% above my usual standard, I have always used my fender strat (50's v neck and 7.25" radius) at gigs for the past 7 years and while set up well, it doesn't hold a candle for ease of playability, best I've played in ages. Trem stays in tune perfectly. Basically all the tone of a strat with the amazing quality and playability of a PRS. I'm going to get rid of the neck HFS and sell it to offset the cost even more and get a tortoise shell pickguard made to accommodate a neck single coil. The HFS taps as good as a humbucker can but is still kinda dark going from that to all the true single coil positions that include the middle fralin single. In between sounds in position 2 and 4 sound wonderful. The pearl white looks great under light going between blue and purplish depending on the light. I may take the guitar to a luthier friend to wick some glue into the neck pocket cracks in case they do happen to be deeper into the wood for stability's sake. I also have a swamp ash body blank already rough cut to PRS shape that I need to make so could be cool to put the neck across to that maybe down the track.
