    Congrats! That is beauty!

    In terms of straps for a neck heavy guitar, my go to has always been the Italia suede backed straps; however, Italia straps don't play well with PRS strap buttons. Frankly, I am not a fan of PRS strap buttons period and find they don't work well with most good straps.

    The strap buttons are the one part of PRS instruments that I just don't agree with. I get itchy if I don't have strap locks available within the first week of getting a new one. I have a set of Schaller S-locks awaiting the day that my Silver Sky arrives. I remain optimistic that it will be some time this year.

    That’s a really stunning guitar! There’s a small easy thing you can do to diminish the neck dive a little. Put on wooden tuner buttons, I did that to my EG III years ago and I noticed the difference immediately. I use a leather PRS strap on that guitar which also helps.

    Was gonna recommend this strap that I love, but I just noticed they're not selling them anymore, a shame.

    I've been using Dunlop Dual Design Strap Locks for years now. I wouldn't use anything else. And yes, in my opinion, PRS standard buttons are useless.

    Do any other of you hollow body owners get any buzzing or rattling from the guitar? Can't quite pinpoint the location of the sound. I don't notice it when I'm plugged in. Its not the knobs. Doesn't seem to be the pickup cover. I thought it might just be the nature of highly resonant guitars. Still, I guess i would prefer it didn't rattle at certain notes.

    I had a bit in my 25th Anniversary when finger picking one of the G or B string. The dealer pointed out I was playing it like my classical. I went with it for a while, then he arranged for PTC to look at it and the corrected the problem. I don’t recall what they did.
