    Geez, that thing is just gorgeous! I can't imagine ever putting it down, unless it's b/c I can't pick it up b/c I can't stop staring at it?!?!?

    Isn't that just the 'glow' burst as the Dragons Breath is more of a 'V' as if its like a dragon blowing fire out of its mouth. The burst is generally as if the 'neck' is the Dragon so the widest part of the V is the base of the guitar.

    It would be a bit like '>----' where the ---- is the neck and the > is the burst where the 'glow' or orange is inside the > and the darker 'red' is outside that.

    This is what I understand to be a 'Dragons Breath' style, where as if the 'bright' part is centred in the middle of the guitar with the darker part going all around the outside, that is classed as a 'Glow'

    I could be wrong but I am certain I saw a PRS video that was describing why this 'shape' was the Dragon's Breath because it resembled the fire of a fire breathing dragon

    You are 100% correct on electronics.

    It is a 594, having scale length and neck carve going with that, the pickups are 58/18MTs like the special 22 SH. The binding is natural, just like the top, it only looks lighter/“scraped” because of the “smoke microburst” around the top and back edges. I would have preferred the 2 piece bridge also...but it is not available w piezo saddles, so I went w the one piece adjustable (which I also love).
    So it is a 594 HB2 Piezo

    And you will be happy to know that the back is carved...full on HB 2 style.

    It is indeed a Dragon’s Breath Glow 594. I assume you’d like to see more....

    WOW! WOW! and WOW!! again!!

    Even from the back, this is an absolute stunner and I bet its a dream to play with amazing tone too...

    I too would prefer a 2piece Bridge but I would rather have a Piezo than not. It would be an 'easy' decision to go without the 2 piece for a Piezo for me too.

    I will have to make do with just the regular Core 594 Hollowbody 2 when PRS make a Fire Burst Red version and ship it to the UK so I can buy it. Its such a hardship having to 'make do' with just the 594 switching options, 2 piece bridge and go without the Piezo, also having to 'make do' with the incredible 58/15's LT's and a regular Mahogany neck. It will be such a hard decision and I will be so reluctant to make that purchase - especially after seeing your 'stunning' hybrid. I will be so 'sad' having to use my absolutely stunning Hollowbody ii with its one piece Maple top and back, with its 58/15 LT's if I must for any Piezo requirements. I am absolutely gutted that I have to buy a new PRS, to have 2 PRS guitars where you only need the 1. Its such a shame that I must increase my Guitar collection with another PRS after all why have multiple, high end stunning instruments when you can just have 1? Who would want that?? :p:D:D:D

    In all seriousness now, that is one stunning instrument you have and I hope to add numbers 5 and 6 to my collection as soon as I am financially able to and the models in the colours I want are available here. Obviously I want a 594 HB as I have already stated but I would also want to add a PRS Special 22 as well. I don't really know how the Multi-Tap 58/15's compare tonally to the Low-Turns but I would like to plug one in to my set-up and find out - another Guitar that I am waiting to arrive in the UK in Fire Red Burst (are you listening PRS ;);))

    Damn! A P245 Trem. Spectacular. That's the model I was hoping would make it to regular production. Alas...

    Oh, I feel you: I have one being built in the PS shop as we speak. So I'm pretty much the pot calling the kettle black!

    I think they call the shape of the finish burst Dragons Breath (DBB) now for the reasons you describe (I recall seeing a video as well) and you can specify different color stains. I use to own this DC 594 in Sandstorm DBB for example:

    But there is a color stain also called Dragons Breath that can be used in either the DBB or in the Glow finish in Tosca’s 594.

    Perhaps it was intentionally made to appear unintentional...

    Love that! But I also love Beach Fade and Cross Beach Fade - the tyranny of choice!

    With PS occasionally comes the ‘out there’ stuff. The carving is no bigger than an open palm, yet the detail is amazing.

    I don't think there is a container large enough for the drool running out of my mouth...

    Sounds like you need Miles Cowperthwaite to empty your drool buckets.

    Here is a quick video of the Private Stock Vault. If you've never been there, you owe it to yourself to make the pilgrimage!
