    Thanks!

    For a long time I couldn't decide whether to get it built with matching mahogany backplates.
    I did GIMP renderings and the black backplates looked fine to me with the dark neck.
    Later on I got a few ziricote headplates on eBay that were large enough for making backplates.

    I was in cost optimization mode when spec'ing this one, trying to cut any option I didn't feel strongly about.
    For example I had purfling at first but ended up gong for the simpler look:

    The color sure deserves to be called Laguna when you look at it this way:


    Maybe I should create a relaxation video with PRS tops moving with the light, I'm starting to have a decent collection :p
