    I love this thread. The malachite and whatever the blue inlays are just the bees knees!

    I don't seek out specific guitars for this thread, I just take photos of the guitar the PS team happens to be working on as I cruise through the area. Sorry.

    Woundtight, that is AWESOME! I assume that is your personal guitar, as it has your signature switching configuration.

    Laguna Dragon Breath, looks killer on that sick one-piece quilt top! Both of my two in the oven are one-piece quilts.

    Cool how you did the 12-fret birds different than the rest!

    Beautiful guitar... Love those finished that make you want to dive into them! (Does that sound a little odd? :) )

    Not really a PS shot, but I thought I’d show this anyway. Many people ask about the thickness of our tops. Most of the maple tops start out as 5 quarter and then are carved into shape. The center of the guitar stays roughly 5 quarter thickness, while they edges swoop down into the famous "Violin" carve. This illustrates the eventual binding height as well as the overall thickness of the top.
