Golden Mesa is the one I have saved on my wishlist.
Does anyone know what would cause darkening on the headstock? I just noticed it today and swear it wasn't there yesterday. I keep it in the case every night. Could it have rubbed on something in there? It's just on the two end points, giving it a slight burnt look.
That looks quite unusual.
It looks like it could be friction. Or maybe heat, but strange that it has just affected the tips of the headstock.
Maybe it’s turning vintage already. Don’t let anyone else see, or they’ll all want one.
Haha. It's just so puzzling to me. I've been so careful with it and then to find out that I've done something to it and have no idea what it is drives me bonkers!
Burnt ends.... Mmmm. That’ll be the next thing.. a whole bunch of bbq inspired features. Roasted necks with burnt ends, extra deep cutaways for those with pork bellies.
Sorry to make light. That is weird!
Thanks for weighing in on my color dilemma. The more I look at it, Golden Mesa is moving into the lead.
I'm originally from Kansas City, so comparing it to barbecue is okay by me!
Hmmm... interesting... now I have to go check mine!
Runs over to SS... (and get another coffee)...
OK... back after inspection with coffee.
Nope, mine looks non BBQ'd.
Mine sits out at home, or is transported in an older SE gig bag to/from practice. Hmmm..
Have you tried running a cloth or paper towel around the inside of the case to test for colorfastness? Given the protective coating on the wood, can you tell at all whether the discoloration is on the surface or internal? Perhaps try a Q-tip soaked in alcohol and rub/dot a spot on the back side of that "point"?
I haven't tried that yet. But the gig bag is the only thing I can think off that constantly brushes the top of the headstock as I take it in and out. It's possible that it's happened gradually and I simply didn't notice until yesterday. I don't mind when stuff happens to my guitars but I like to know what causes it. Mainly so I don't keep doing it!
Maybe just in "case" (yuck yuck) you could put a white sock over the headstock when in the gig bag?
Btw, having lived both in TX and NC, BBQ is not a topic of rational discussion! Generally, I just try to each as much of both as I can and let the chewing drown out the debate arguing.
Yup...no change....mine's good. I keep mine in the gig bag as well. I placed a white microfiber towel on the headstock just now. It's relatively "snug" so I'll keep watch to see if there's any color transfer.
Full disclosure...I am NOT a research scientest....I put liquid paper on a bee once...and it died. But I did stay in a holiday inn express last night.
Ok, fixed now.
I was going to say Gig bag , I had a white flying V that had parts get discolored from the black case.
Has anyone observed or heard of rust on the saddles of a SS? I've seen a couple cases of this come up on the used market.
That’s it I’m hooked #2 is in the house. No new PRS guitars for 9 years and then BOOM just like that. Breathing new life into my playing.
It's just that good... innit?
The neck jus does it for me. The worst part is I really want a dodgem blue
That was differenty, and cool!
