    Sorry, but I've never been a fan of the tri-color burst on a PRS. It looks fine on a Strat, but odd (too me) on a PRS...

    WTF with those pickups? They escape from a bass?

    Thats the 513 right? 5 pup's 13 sounds. Would love to get my hands on are of those, who cares what it looks like! It's the SOUND that I go by first.

    I'm fine with the color, but the PUs look weird...

    But as Bluesrules says, sound is king.

    I like the tri-color burst. I bet it will look much nicer in person.

    Not my favorite color, but if if plays and sounds great it wouldn't stop me from buying.

    I wouldn't grab it off the wall based upon its looks but if it played well and sounded good, I'd get over it.

    Wouldn't be my first choice in colors. It's alright, but the pups just ruin it, IMO.

    Those are awesome guitars. Not my favorite color, but I'd bet money on it being a badass instrument based on the ones I've owned and played.

    I like it fine. Would be very into hearing what it's capable of.

    I think its great although I like the 513 best in blue...Im gonna treat myself to a 513 in few years when I turn 50! I may try to find a older one with the Brazilian rosewood neck...

    Beautiful! But the pickups on the 513's are a little weird looking. i bet they'd be a more popular seller with a more conventional cosmetics in that area.

    I think the guitar looks nice, but the pickups do not.

    I think it looks sharp. I really do prefer those inlays over the typical PRS birds.
