    No, but I could totally see that as a possibility as a special run at some point.

    John Mayer has been spotted playing what looks very much like what you describe with the Dead.

    Thought this would be an appropriate place to make sure I can add pictures.....

    Was not 100% enamored with the 58/15 LT in the bridge, but was not sure where to go with it... I personally don't love the 5909, which seems to be what most have found works.

    I did happed to have an extra arm and leg laying around, so I decided to get a DGT Bridge pickup AND that was the magic that I had really been needing to make my 594 the perfect guitar for me.

    Was great in the full band setting with quite a bit more sizzle to get out in front, especially during solo time.

    Santa brought me this faded whale blue 594 this year... so glad he didn't scratch it dropping down the chimney! I've been playing it for a week... absolutely love it!

    Now that, kids, is how you start off the New Year! :cool:

    What a luscious beast, please enjoy it in good health!

    So many finishes look amazing on this model, but FWB always gives me unmistakable warm fuzzies.

    They should do a Wood Library run of these with a wrap around bridge instead. And no neck binding.

    Just love faded whale, I just think it’s one of the most underrated colours PRS do!

    Enjoy

    Yes to the wraparound. Got to admit I like myself a bit of neck binding, especially if it’s flamed or quilted :D
    Just a matter of personal preference
