    99% of the time, our consensus is a hearty "Buy it!" This is not in the 1%.

    Anecdote time: Back in '02, I was nervous at the idea of getting an HBII in Turquoise vs. a more classic look like Dark Cherry Sunburst. I was afraid it might end up being a dated or unpopular look. To this day, the guitar gets complimented often when I bring it out somewhere. I think most PRS finishes are relatively timeless, and I really dig the painted maple edge and bare back on this one.

    OK
    I pulled the trigger on the Aqua Burst, 4-5 days shipping, Now I am excited, I cant wait 60 days for other version to show up.
    Instant gratification and tone addiction prohibit me from being rational.

    I guess I can buy another one later:cool:

    Yes, I almost bought that one! I had been talking to Steve at Wildwood (great guy!) about that one for months (while it was still being built), ever since getting my SC Prototype. Since I recently got the PS DC 594 and the SH DC 594, and have two more 594's in the oven, I figured I should probably be patient and enjoy the ones I have, and wait for the next two to come in.

    Steve did a GREAT job spec'ing the DC and SC 594's he did, they are right up my alley! This one has been especially hard to resist!! ;)

    If you look back at the PSF thread, this one made several appearances, as did its DC 594 sibling with the same spec (which came in in the fall of last year, I had a hard time resisting that one too!).

    Thanks for the support guys
    Actually clicked the buy now.
    On that incredible "Desert Sandstorm Fade" I actually have enough money (If I don't eat for several months) and I But then I canceled it. Because I really felt like a heroin addict. I decided I better by a bottom of the line core model first. On the sandstorm the bird inlays are simply mind blowing It looks like they were made like minted coins.

    Life is a compromise; the Purple Aqua Burst Is weighing in at 8 lbs. 2 oz. and the mahogany grain appears to be medium to high quality in density and uniformity. I can see the wood library grains are a little bit tighter than this one.
    But the neck mahogany piece appears to be very top-of-the-line grain uniformity, tight and dense,
    So I'll see if the photos Detail translates into tone.
    I've definitely seen prettier pieces of mahogany but it's still pretty good. And the weight Tells me it's pretty dense.
    Although subtle I really like the yellow blemishes/defects in the Maple grain Bleeding through the Aqua stain.
    It Creates very interesting artifacts especially for a non-10 top.
    cheers

    Hi guys,

    I just wondered, when you go for a 10 top model what do PRS mean about hybrid hardware? Is it just the tuner buttons that are gold instead of a nickel finish? Is sthere anything else different about the guitar? apart from the top of course.

    Cheers

    Paul

    I might be tempted by a Goldtop or a Black Beauty SC594. ( then there is always that DC with a trem that a certain forum member has that I lust for....)

    Along with the tuner buttons, all screws (except intonation), toggle switch nut, output jack,strap buttons are gold.

    I received my Prototype SC 594 PS four months ago today, October 7th. Wow, it seems like I have had it a lot longer than that!

    Still, despite two other Private Stock DC 594's being added to the collection since then (the Nightshade 594 Trem, and the Semi-Hollow 594, both incredible instruments!), this one is still my favorite guitar ever.

    The Chappers/Captain SC/DC video really reinforced to me that both the DC and the SC are awesome, similar in soul but two subtly different animals, like fraternal twins.

    I haven't decided yet which *model* I like best, I still am torn in that regard - I need more SC's to compare (which is planned! ;)), but as an individual guitar this SC remains the most magical and special instrument I have ever touched...

    Amazing in every way, Pete!

    Not much of a PRS SC guy but I pause whenever I see a gold top. Even the SE's.

    A great demo from my good friend Eric from Willcutt's!

    Holy cow, that guitar sounds KILLER!!

    I guess I need to buy that one, considering I owned the first two 594's he demo'ed, the GOM, and a WL DC.... ;)

    (Just kidding! I have the first Prototype and one in the oven, so I think I will be okay.). :)

    Watched this last night, laughed a little when he got to the single coil tones and the pickup wasn't selected.

    I need to see a one piece quilt top with black gold contour burst with binding and a microburst on the back.

    Gorgeous! love a 10 top. I think the hybrid hardware really sets the guitars off.
