    Pretty wild! Digging the vibe on this one and that Tele -style bridge.

    Edit- might as well put the official info up now

    Cool, I like it. Does that sign say it's an S2 ? Humbucker and a narrowfield?

    I'm having trouble looking at it and not seeing a regular PRS that when slightly Salvador Dali.

    So does that mean small neck profile?

    Well, Pattern regular. Which you know today I was playing some 2014 Fender American Standards. All their necks were small! Definitely thinner than the PRS pattern reg. I do still miss the ol' wide/fat though.

    I don't think the offset fender thing works well with prs style horns
