    Thats a great guitar and post,

    although...........I got confused between your thread and the next recent post when I signed on, and I thought you had put a stain on a koa private stock in righteous guitars and were pressing red alert on your cell phone in their amp room ;)

    Haha! I'm in full agreement my friend believe me. Have to crack the case open every morning before work just to look at it. Well, and play it sometimes when I have a second. Bonus, it smells amazing too. Need a Glade plug-in of the scent like right now.

    Starting to look into getting some Brazilian parts to swap out the plastic. Ever since I saw my first PS guitars with those wooden knobs, etc. they always just looked so cool to me. Gonna start with knobs and 5-way switch tip. Not 100% if I'm going to get the pickup rings or not. Anybody that has experience with them your input would be much appreciated!

    Also, thanks again everybody, getting to share this stuff with like-minded people who actually appreciate the guitars is awesome. And a big thanks to everybody that chimed in about having the same issues with justification, helps knowing it's a pretty common thing.

    Man, every time I look at your PS I think it gets better looking! lol

    Curious what the weight is based on the Koa.

    Are you running it through a Princeton or Deluxe, or was that just where the box ended up for the picture? My main amp is a 1966 Princeton Reverb.

    You and me both man, honestly. And pics can't capture the way the top moves in the light, or the way the agoya around the birds gets a rainbow sheen to it. It's killer.

    You know I haven't weighed it yet. Let me see, the specs from when Brett originally put it up on here says 7lbs 3oz. https://forums.prsguitars.com/threads/ps-special-koa-sold.38010/#post-475102

    I haven't run it through the DRRI yet. With my daughter's room right next to the mini-mancave I tend to use the Kemper 99.9% of the time. She's having 3 friends over tomorrow night, so I may drag out the Dual Rec and annoy them.:cool:

    That’s one of the most beautiful instruments these tired old eyeballs have ever seen. I think the right person has it.

    Beautiful guitar! Congrats!

    Man, I need some PRS Koa. My Koa uke is nice, but a toy in comparison.
