I like the wood binding. Plastic binding, without the rest of the body having it, always looked ‘off’ to me. The two plastic strips seem so out of place. I believe I only have one PRS with plastic binding and I added a bunch of faux ivory parts to balance it out (for my tastes). To each, their own. I’ve been cut by sharp frets before. Mostly from a BC Rich I used to play - before grunge made my pointy guitar seem silly. I’ve never had a sharp fret from a PRS.
