    This looks strangely similar to the new PRS strat "inspired" guitar. And of course, the guitar-playing world doesn't have enough strat copies. Even the headstocks look very similar. LOL!!

    Also, on the Kiesel guitar, check out how much of a gap there is in the pickup openings. Not sure I like that.

    Kiesel (Carvin) has been making the Bolt for YEARS now. You could have ordered that guitar with those options long before the PRS Silver Sky was released.

    Those just help the guitar breathe. Tone is in the air.

    There’s a mini switch.

    Well... we did almost have the Hendrix model Strat-ish guitar from Gibson several years ago.

    The mini-switch lets you have a bridge - neck combo

    no cover for truss rod? Seems like it would get dusty. It's freaky how similar the headstock is to the PRS.
