    We've all oogled over the flame, burl, and exotic tops that PRS private stock & wood library has offered over the years, but I'm seeking a glam shot of their most unglamorous wood. I've seen some nice ones but not very often and I'm looking for some inspiration and color options for a potential upcoming project.

    If you’re strictly looking for mahogany, “the Tree” is pretty nice stuff:

    While the following back wasn’t the Tree, it was a piece of quilted mahogany found in the PRS Vault:

    And I agree with 11Top that the occasional mahogany back can be better than most tops.

    (While not a true mahogany,) Sepele is referred to as “African Mahogany” since its characteristics are similar.
