Pound for pound it’s probably my favourite PRS run ever! I’ve one in raspberry myself.

If I’m right about the wood in this run, you’re going to notice the guitar sounds different from any other PRS guitar.

Congrats, what a top!

Tonart, what wood was used for this run?

Wow, that is a fantastic guitar. (I would think I know--I own an '11 MC-58 with 57/08 pickups.) That right there could very well be a "desert island" or "forever" guitar. I know mine sure is. Love that overall look & color-scheme, too. Classic!

Thank you. I’ve never heard of another guitar using that strain of mahogany. Very interesting.
The Artist V and 53/10 limited runs also had the same neck wood, but the 57/08 limiteds are a different kettle of tone, somehow.
