Sofaking sexy right there!
Maybe you just never found anyone who knows how to make a pickguard? hahaha

This might be different enough for you.
Coooool, but I'd still like it better without.
As an engineer, I hate absolutes because the universe is one big tradeoff.
In this case though, there is an absolute. Look anywhere in the universe and you'll see the 2.726K cosmic background radiation. Look in the NF3 guitar universe and you'll see the 25th McCarty NF3 as an absolute.
My Studio. Bought new. Cannot really say why I have barely play it. Seems I go to the 513 more.
What's the top on that one? Spalted or?
Totally get that and know what you're saying. I wanted a 305 to be the PRS feel/play "Strat" that I went to buy one and ended up leaving with an EBMM JP12 instead.
Freaking incredible! This is what I was looking for when I ended up with the NF3. If I had seen this one, I would own it. Spectacular!
Not a great pic, but a great guitar. If you ever find yourself "not playing it" enough that you decide you want to get rid of it, please let me know first. AFTER I GET AN ARCHON! LOL
Yes, spalted maple.
I did post it on another site. Guess I have not gotten serious enough yet to drop the price enough to complete the deal.
I'm going to take you into an alternate universe, one that combines the NF middle pickup with two Narrow 408 pickups. And I'm going to explain why one of these guitars might just be worth considering, assuming that you can find one.
For me, the NF pickup is the greatest middle pickup I've ever played. It's the perfect middle pickup, it does exactly what a middle pickup should do. However...as a bridge or neck pickup, played clean - and I stress that this might only apply to my own tastes - it tends to sound more humbucker than single-coil-articulate-sparkly-clear. Because it is, in fact, a humbucker. Yes, it's an articulate humbucker, but there are other options.
Enter the narrow 408. This pickup, even in full humbucker mode, sounds more like a single coil pickup. It's also more articulate than a split coil humbucker, including the split coils on my McCarty that are of course a recent PRS design.
What this amounts to is single coil clarity without single coil noise; an incredibly beautiful set of in-between tones; and a truly unique sound, especially considering what PRS is known for.
Of course, none of this matters for heavy distortion work, I'm speaking principally of clean sounds here, where I think the differences between the pickups is most pronounced, though I also love the guitar for overdriven sounds, I generally will go with a true humbucker as a preference.
The guitar in my alternate universe is the 20th Anniversary of PS Ltd. It's easily the most unique sounding, incredible guitar I've ever owned for times when I don't want a traditional humbucker sound.
Post a pic of that beauty
All the way back in post 11
That's a sweet guitar as I've said many times, but another PS in is outta the realm of possibility for me.
This is what I just did at the PRS PTC with my Swamp Ash Studio.
Check out mu thread and the list of reasons why I did this.
Here are my Swamp Ash guitars. BTW - The regular Mahogany/Maple/Rosewood Studio didn't really sound nearly as cool (Bright, Bitey, and open sounding) as the Swamp Ash/Maple/Maple combination.
The Blue one trying to hide behind the pillar looks special
All I see are the end-caps. Yowzah!
