    Some of y'all might remember this thead where I recounted the process of visiting the PRS factory in Stevensville to choose the wood for my Private Stock build. It's been over 9 months but it was worth the wait! Here she is: Custom 24 Semi-Hollow with a stoptail, 3-way toggle with push/pull coil split, carved back, "sinker" mahogany wide/thin (NOT pattern thin) neck, ebony fretboard, mother-of-pearl J-birds with paua centers, and 57/08 pickups.

    I put this build together with a desire to get classic semi-hollow tones with the playability of my Custom 24, and this baby delivers! I'll put together a tone report tomorrow but for now, here's the pics:

    Yep, Purple Mist. I knew I wanted purple, and Purple Mist seemed like the most high-contrast purple stain, to really bring out the quilt.
