    This was a torturous process, took me awhile to decide on a 408, and then there were (are) a lot of choices at a wide variety of price points available, with lots of different appearances/tops, and some different specs. This checked the boxes - pattern neck, on the lighter side of the spectrum. I was not sure whether to go with the plain top or the typical flamey PRS thing, and there is also a very nice platinum silver top with a natural back available. Was a tough choice, but I am happy. Hope it lives up to my expectations when I receive it! I still want another Cu24 or more likely 2408. I have had a couple of nice Cu24s (amongst other models) and I miss them.

    Thanks!

    Good pick up! I did not even notice those. I think this was a special order or something.

    Oh! Guess it was just the color that was the special order. I like the cream against the black, I dig a bit of contrast.
