    PRS is known for constant improvement. If the finish works, let them worry about!

    Like so many other parts of the guitar, that are designed to be user friendly and last.

    What a golden opportunity this is! I suggest calling it, “Les’ Favorite Core Finish So Far.”

    Because it’s all about me. :)

    We love and care for all the unicorns in the world. In fact, Paul has a free-range ranch on Kent Island where unicorns can frolic near the bay. He also offers a save haven to Pegasus' (pegasi?) as well

    These must be Unicorns with Pernambuco necks, Dragon Inlays, ultra-Low serial numbers...

    Or the people that make them.

    The only way I’d remember a BM from 2013 would be if I took a picture of it. :eek:

    Lol. I had an early V12 adopter... a 2011 PRS Experience Custom 24. The V12 started peeling off along the entire neck where the fretboard meets the neck. I could not play it without losing pieces. I called it my leper guitar. Anyway I finally called PRS and they refinished the ENTIRE guitar for a little more than the price of shipping. Not much of an explanation or apology for the V12 but kind of an implicit understanding that guitars with V12 just need fixing. I recently wanted a 2018 refinished and they quoted me 1500.00... yikes...

    As fas as I concern, PRS didn´t even announce issues that were faced by customers with regard to severe fuzz/buzz noise as they introduced point-to-point soldering at 513s around 2014. In general any issue with PRS quality is addressed to the dealer.
