    Sweet guitar, Em7.

    Here's mine. Already posted elsewhere, but since you asked for one-offs, here you go...

    Blue Crab Blue Custom 22 with set maple neck, cocobolo fingerboard, uncovered 59/09's, natural back, but no natural "binding".

    Plus the truss rod cover says "Custom 24" even though it's a 22. For some weird reason, I like that.

    I do not know how one-offs come about, but many are kind of like FrankenPRSi. As one can clearly see, my one-off has an odd MODCAT for a 2011 model year guitar.

    My one off is factory... painters choice for the 2012 foil series. Happy foil with a black sunburst... was at the 2012 show. Only foil series with a sunburst. Head painter gets to do 1 one-off... this was it.

    I've had a bunch and can't find any pictures.

    Wasn't that a useless posting by me?

    Sorry.

    Core claro walnut back (McCarty). (This guitar was originally supposed to have a pink ivory top, but turned out not large enough and I traded it to Paul for a quilted maple top):

    Back in the ice ages, I supplied my wood. No longer an option (and hasn't been for quite a number of years).

    I was told by Brian that this is a one of one.

    Its a Wood Library McCarty Trem with a flame maple neck, quilt top and ribbon mahogany in Charcoal Cherry Burst. I've seen many like it with flame top, or hardtail. And a few "Fatback", but not a McCarty.

    How about a one-off certificate. I think I only like the guitar slightly more than the certificate. :p

    LOL. Well, one does have more figuring than the other. The certificate is a 1 top at best. And who cares about tone anyway yeah?

    Speaking of certificates, I’ve had nearly irresistible de-clutter urges to toss my PS certificates, hang tags, and the stuff that comes in various guitar cases (except the tools).

    I used to joke about setting my hang tags on fire in a video, just to be even more annoying than I already am. I only started saving all that stuff when internet used gear selling became a thing and people made having it a ‘feature’.

    Makes me feel like a pack rat to keep it all, though for now I still do.

    “Look, still has the old tagger on it, never been played...l
