    When I first saw this one a few days ago, two things occurred: I was stricken with tunnel vision, and heard a thunderous "OMMMMMMMMMMM" sound in my head. This is my first SAS, and along with that my first PRS with a maple neck.

    And what a neck it is. Never seen a single piece of flamed maple like this one:

    Nice! I need to swap out all my PRSses for maple necked ones, except there's a couple I can't bring myself to do...but I definitely want a SAS at some point. (And I should probably keep a couple non-maple-necked ones anyway, just because as I mature, my tastes might change again.)

    Love that one! That top is awesome. How the grain on the left curves with the body.

    That is a fantastic find! Great looking bookmatching! They don't always come out looking that good. Keep it! Play it in good health.

    The ONLY one of a dozen or more PRSi I got between 1990 and 1999, and still have today, is a natural finish SAS with maple neck. It is REALLY good.
    It actually looks quite like that one, except it is a hardtail.
