    Back in March we went to PSland...... I knew I wanted something Siggy, and I was hoping to snag an elusive Ziricote neck.

    For the top I wanted to look a bit like a storm cloud....

    Cumulonimbus arrived yesterday!!

    Tone report to come, but in the meantime..... OH MY WORD!!!! the Ziricote neck has knocked my socks off!!! my well played Braz neck #350 has long been the best PRS neck ever for me. This is a massive call, but I think the Ziricote with the "PS" finish is soo damn close right out of the box!! Soooooooo Good!!!!

    Happy Tim.... this thing plays awesome!!

    Beauty.
    Great top.
    Spectacular neck.
    And a bonus signature on the back.

    Excellent build.

    I think she is just signing for Tim.
    I had one built a bit later and wasn't deemed worthy of Tina's signature.

    Dude, I have seen that guitar and it is FULLY worthy!!!

    I asked Tina to, as she was a real help on the selection day and afterwards.... so it was a tip of the hat!!

    I try to sometimes acknowledge those who have helped in the process with a little headstock tribute :)

    Somewhere I have a pics of some of the backs and different sigs of those who helped on the day and throughout.... i will dig it up!!

    That's awesome - I love having the people sign stuff. In PTC we can't go headstock, so we have to go cavity cover ;)

    Dead sexy, bro. You certainly have neck selection down to a science. We'll have to talk before I ever go PS'ing. ;) Congrats!

    I was pretty sure that was the case and kudos to you for it.
    I wish I'd thought of it myself.

    Nice Tim. Love the color and figure. Reminds me of a quilt top version of my Sig. Is that the Graphite finish?
