    Because you constantly talk crap, most of which is patently false.

    R0 Resurrection - "Ronson" Reborn or Stain It?

    Dark brown stain, sand back, natural or honey over that.

    Why so much animosity for PRS players, or for anyone that has a guitar with a nice top?

    As I noted in the other thread, put your money where you're foot is. Show up with $1k to bet.

    What Happened to the 'PRS Fijian Mahogany' Thread?

    Your ability to web search means nothing. Everyone who knows how to work on frets knows the phenomena, and I've told you two specific ways to check for it. But you're scared sh**less to do that, instead you keep typing poop. Tell you what. PM me, come to Nashville with $1k to bet, I'll give...

    What Happened to the 'PRS Fijian Mahogany' Thread?

    Dealers neither check nor care. If you use their super high factory spec, which is high for an acoustic, it's not an issue. If you expect things done correctly on a very expensive guitar so that poor neck planning isn't a limiting factor, it can be. It's funny you two are so unbelievably...

    What Happened to the 'PRS Fijian Mahogany' Thread?

    Yeah that's why just I had to return a gorgeous cu24 piezo 10 top, because there wasn't a huge ski jump at the end of the fretboard.... :rolleyes:

    Why so much animosity for PRS players, or for anyone that has a guitar with a nice top?

    It's definitely the over the top PRS fanboys who claim all prs are perfect and every other brand sucks. What's not to hate about that? This coming from someone who owns 20ish PRS, some with crazy tops. PRS fanboys are the worst, bar none.

    What Happened to the 'PRS Fijian Mahogany' Thread?

    Tongue rise, ski jump, rise at the end of the neck, etc. Everyone who does fretwork knows exactly what I mean. A couple guys who know nothing except being PRS fanboys claim it doesn't exist.. Ok, keep pretending the earth is flat if it helps you sleep at night.

    What Happened to the 'PRS Fijian Mahogany' Thread?

    Says two guys that have no clue what they're talking about. Never done fretwork or a refret, never planed a fretboard or held a file, and think the measure of a guitar is solely figuring and paint, not the actual attention to detail in craftsmanship. Oh, and who are scared to death to actually...

    Chasing perfection...and achieving it??

    I have lots of examples of a lot of types. If it isn't perfect, I make it that, or it goes.

    Bought a new floor model listed as "mint"

    I've seen some places sell new in the box gear as "used mint" so they could list at a lower price than MAP.

    How long before traditional wood…

    Yes instead we'll use synthetics that are non bio degradable and made with processes that generate lots of toxic waste, because that's so much better for the environment. Just like coal powered cars with massive carbon footprints and hazardous waste batteries with the half life if uranium are...

    Oh the humanity The Lppp in the pickup cavity indicates this started life as a beautiful Les Paul Premium Plus.

    The definitive tone wood test

    Geez, this crap again? Every piece of wood sounds different. I've worked on and owned enough otherwise identical guitars to know that as absolute fact. If you can't hear it or don't have the experience to know it, sucks to be you.

    What Happened to the 'PRS Fijian Mahogany' Thread?

    It gets talked about a lot when I talk to customers and other luthiers. Lots of things get talked about that you don't necessarily see.......... for reasons obvious here. What one person who does this kind of work talks about with another who does this kind of work doesn't get discussed a lot...

    Shipnerd requires you to verify an amount charged to your credit card before you ship. Big time sink, should say that up front. Also, every time I ship over $1k at UPS, it gives me a form they have to sign verifying the packaging is correct. Shipnerd does NOT give that form. I foresee...

    What Happened to the 'PRS Fijian Mahogany' Thread?

    I told you very clearly how to test for it. Here's another test: Drop the action to 1mm high E 1.5mm low E. Buzz like a mfer, fret out, no sustain? There you go. Sending a PRS back Monday for exactly that issue. Unfortunate, very pretty guitar, but big ski jump at the end of the neck...

    What about a Strat or a Les?

    Myth and over-generalization. My Lps are high 7s to high 8s and weigh about the same as my strat style guitars. You CAN get heavy les pauls, but the heaviest guitar I ever owned was an ash strat that was well over 10lbs. Very different guitars. I say both.

    Recommend me a PRS

    Pattern Regular is slightly thicker front to back than Pattern Thin, but it's also thinner side to side (narrower nut). Feels less like a import shredder and more like a vintage soft V, but it ain't big. I have a bunch of them, they remind me of 90s G&Ls in a lot of ways, I find them super...
