    My first PRS has landed! 2020 594, in charcoal with natural back.

    First impressions are: lighter than I expected, and the neck is nowhere near as fat as I feared it'd be (I had to buy this one unseen as I couldn't find one locally to demo). It certainly isn't thin but it doesn't feel like a club either. It takes gain wonderfully, and it has a very clear top end and nice, full bottom end. Very resonant.

    I need to sit down and intonate it later, but looking forward to getting down with it later when the kids sack out.

    Nice one! I too was worried about the thickness of the neck because I prefer skinnier necks buts it’s become my favorite carve.

    This is the second NGD today with a charcoal top/natural back (the other is a Santana) and I really like the combo! Great looking top here as well - enjoy!

    Awesome. Welcome to the Charcoal/natural brotherhood. That is a stunning symmetrical top. You might think about swapping out those black lampshade knobs for ambers

    Yeah - it's basically exactly what I wanted, though I found it in the wild. Either charcoal or grey-black (but don't think one finds those with natty backs too often). In some light, some of the darker shades almost look purple. My wife asked if it was blueish when she first saw it.

    I think a 594 charcoal thread may be in order!
