Cool top on that one! What's the story on the zebra pickups and white rings?
I do think it was a great choice.
To be honest, I didn't even notice. Hah, maybe the previous owner made some edits
--------Edit to add ----------
Just checked my Googlefu skills and I'm seeing some other CU24's with the white rings as well. Maybe it's a factory setup?
I don't know if this is the popular opinion or not, but I'm not really a zebra pup fan when it comes down to the looks. They've just never been my thing. The LP had the zebras swapped for some nickel covered pups, and I think it looked pretty clean.
That said, these things sound great from my initial 10 minutes of testing it out. I just picked up a new Engl Screamer 50, so I'm going through several items of new gear and just seeing what I bond with.
Cool. Was just wondering since the S2 line usually have black rings and bobbins. Maybe it was a special spec for a dealer. I dig the look on that guitar. Brightens up the blue and matches the birds.
It's crazy how much more luxurious S2's look with creme rings. Seen a few on Reverb that made me look twice.
Low quality part after low-quality part and yet it is amazing, The contrast of red and black very stunning almost like a 70s muscle car. good job
Diggin’ those natural maple cabs on those Boogies!
The red one is a IIC+ and the maple heads are a IIC+ and a Mark IV. Thanks brother!
My two humble SEs. Both rather battered and road-worn, by previous owners and now myself. Tremonti modded with new nut, Warman neck pickup and nickel covers.
Soapbar Singlecut, now with added mini-humbuckers. New nut and replaced the tuners with an old set of Grovers. Oh and I switched the controls around a bit.
Has your PS faded that much, or is it just the lighting? LOVE that top, btw.
holy cow. when you know what you like, you know what you like. Dig the collection
If you want to get more PRSi, I will gladly swap you three of mine for that one.
Thanks man! I had almost 40 core PRS' until last year. I found a guy on a PRS FB page that is a flipper/player. I knew I liked CU24's more than the other models and wanted to trade towards those as I wasn't playing the McCarty's, CU22's and Santanas much anymore. I traded about 18 guitars to get 10. Now my issue is that I play a CU24 for a minute and then grab another one, then another. And for gigs??? I waste a lot of time trying to choose two to bring to the gig.
Thx! The one above was my first in 1996. It’s a cool top with a lot of character. Hard to see unless there’s a lot of light, but awesome either way.
As for my PS, maybe a little of both? I don’t think it was ever quite as blue/indigo as Brian’s pics. How much of it comes through, is very light dependent. If it’s really sunny, you see those hues more. Under most conditions, it looks more like the pic I posted in this thread.

1988 Studio refinished in pearl white (had to use new style headstock decal and handwrite serial), Slightly modernized with phase 2 tuner conversion, 3 way switch with push/pull to add middle pickup.

I wish I could've liked this post more than once.
This doesn’t really fit in the quilt or flame threads, so maybe I’ll drop it here.
