    Have to agree with that (of course a little biased), FYI...that chunk of Brazilian goodness Paul is holding in the last pic of my post above became the neck of this guitar. In the pic Paul is explaining to me why that particular piece was better than any of the others we were looking at.

    Wow, aside from the fact that it's right handed, it's [email protected] near a dead ringer for the PS that I have in progress right now. I hope they didn't get it backwards...

    :confused:

    The feral albino baby dragon lived among Private Stocks, raised by eagles, and became the most (unintentionally) photographed guitar in all of PSF history.

    Therefore it makes sense for it to reappear in this thread from whence it was entombed, and ultimately risen again, on this holy Private Stock Friday.

    My PS build from last year. Color is Ocean Mist Glow (OMG) :)

    [​IMG]

    I was going for the colors of Hapuna Beach on the Big Island of Hawaii

    It’s a P245 Trem Braz neck and board, Pattern Vintage neck carve and I requested it to weight < 8lbs due to a bad back. PRS nailed it, it’s my #1 guitar now. All wood accents are Braz RW. I really need to take better photos though!

    Suddenly, I love it even more knowing what the neck is made of.

    I am assuming some 'specs' too based on the design so to me it looks like a Hollowbody 594 with individual toggle switches for coil splitting instead of the 'push/pull' system and the 'Hollowbody ii' Piezo bridge. I can't see for definite the exact PU's used (58/15 LT's would be my guess) and it doesn't look like it has the carved back - not from this angle as it doesn't seem to have the same maple edge (often used as faux binding) that would indicate a similar back to the top. Also can't say for definite the neck carve or scale length either which may have some impact on whether it really could be my Perfect guitar (of course it wasn't built for me) or just be incredibly close to my idea of a perfect guitar.

    Considering I have a 594 and a Hollowbody ii, a marriage of both to give a 594 Hollowbody is something I am seriously GASsing for right now. The Core version uses the tune-o-matic type bridge from the Solid body 594 rather than taking the bridge from the HBii which, if I had my choice, I would hope for. I would also like the curved Maple back from the HBii but I would prefer the neck carve and scale length of the 594. A solid Rosewood neck would top it off perfectly. Obviously for the Electrics, I would prefer the 594 arrangement - whether that uses mini toggles for coil splitting or Push/Pull I don't mind too much. If I had knobs similar to yours, Mini toggles seem a better idea - they are probably a better idea regardless but with the Piezo mini toggle and volume/blend knob, its quite 'busy' in that area.

    As you can see, yours is incredibly close to my idea of Perfection from a guitar and I love the natural look you have gone for. I may 'love' red Guitars (as you may of guessed) but I also love 'natural' guitars too. I don't like 'solid opaque colours that cover up the natural beauty of wood and its grain - I also dislike 'plastic' and only 'tolerate' that for back plates as its on the 'back' of the guitar. I don't always like the wood ones I see on PRS guitars when they are completely different colour to the back of the Guitar - bright green flame maple on a 'natural' mahogany back for example and would actually prefer the much more understated black plastic. The perfect backplates for a natural mahogany back is a natural mahogany with the grain lining up as close as possible. At least Hollowbody guitars don't need back plates which is even better...

    There is so much that your guitar looks to have that would fit my idea of a 'perfect' guitar which is what prompted my post.
