    Is this some home brew or did the factory do this? It's on Reverb. No mention in the copy

    I’ve never seen that before but it looks awesome. If you can get the tag or the MODCAT (a number in the neck pickup cavity) either of those should tell you what the original finish was and answer your question.

    Very possible it's a factory finish.

    Here's a friends factory finish PRS

    My question is it done for creative purposes or to cover up some wood cosmetic flaw? Either way, doesn't hurt the playability and tone.

    Guitars with awesome finishes like that NEED to be broke out on stage! It’s be unfair to the world to keep them hid in a case and nobody ever see them! I’m still trying to right the wrong done to my 79 LP that was in a closet for almost 40 years.

    It is probably stock based on the finish on the back of the guitar. It looks like a one off. I am familiar with the white and red DGT above.
