Thanks - just 1 of many beautifully stunning 594's that have been shown here.
Perhaps not the 'best' top and certainly not the 'best' Fire Red Burst I have seen either - my Custom 24 has a nicer top in my opinion.
One of the most fun things about this forum is seeing everyone's individual tastes
In some cases, the guitar is certainly a reflection of their tastes - particularly in the colour choice - but I do know that for some, it maybe that the guitar's colour/top is incidental as it just so happened to be the 594 that felt right or was available to buy at the right price more than looked right. Maybe even chosen because they didn't have a PRS in that colour scheme yet so not necessarily a reflection of their 'taste'.
All my guitars are 'Red' or at least are more on the 'red' spectrum - even my Acoustic is a Wine Red. As such, my trio of PRS guitars perhaps do tend to blend together as they are all 'Fire Red Burst' rather than be separate entities. At a quick glance, you could mistake one for the other - maybe not to PRS fans as they would instantly recognise the pick-up configuration, switching positions and whether or not it has an owl. I do feel with PRS though that I can be particular over the colour choice where as with some other brands, you may have to hunt high and low for the specific model in a specific colour that also plays well with excellent build quality. Its not like you had to pick the 'blue' guitar because the red one wasn't as good to play or as well made with a PRS.
Anyway, the point is that in my case, the guitars are reflecting my taste - at least at the moment. I doubt I would ever buy a 'blue' guitar even if the price was exceptional for the instrument. However, I am sure that others may well buy guitars that may not be their primary choice in colour/looks but bought it for the tone, the playability or because the price was right for their budget. 2nd hand users may not have the choice to buy the specific model in the specific colour they really wanted - like buying used cars, you have to have the colour(s) that are available and not get too much choice.
That being said, there are a number of 594's here that I would gladly trade with mine - in particular @Tosca quilt 'dragon fire' burst (if that's what its called) as that is stunning!!!
