    I’ve been watching this guitar for a while now, last one in Australia. I couldn’t withstand the urge any longer and had it delivered to the club we were gigging at last night an hour before the gig.

    I can’t put into words how beautiful this looks in the flesh and the way the 58/15 pickups work with this package is breathtaking.

    I have a few other high end Gibson, Fender, Gretsch, Musicman, PRS and Maton guitars but this thing is genuinely next level.

    It’s blended the best of vintage and modern features and just begs to be played....[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I used to be against PRS guitars. Hippy dippy birds, ostentatious flame, the usual complaints . But I came across a Studio at GC and it was an epiphany.

    I just did a three set cover gig tonight with it. It’s a dream guitar, so many tones, so easy to play. Lightweight.

    When you fall for a guitar it’s serious ****, PRS are easy to fall for.

    Your guitar is a beauty. Love that mysterious headstock inlay.

    The "Graveyard" series are absolutely gorgeous but the story behind it and the name creeps me out just a tiny bit.
    PRS' "Violin" series is also drop dead gorgeous in an over the top kind of way.

    The maple tops came from an old tree that was growing by a graveyard.

    I did not know that fact. This guitar is above the normal beauty I expect in a PRS. Really, really stunning!

    Wow... the story about the wood and that guitar itself is very cool. A question I have is what body shape is that?
    I consider myself somewhat of an aficionado but that doesn't look like any of the body horns of PRSi that I have or have seen... The top horn looks more elongated or something and the lower has a deeper scoop than I am used to seeing (or maybe an optical illusion or I'm seeing things LOL).
    But very nice and unusual (or maybe not unusual and I'm just behind or I'm seeing things!).
    Two thumbs up! :aok:aok

    I’m pretty sure it’s a McCarty shape, although I see what you mean, one of those photos creates a bit of an illusion....

    Congrats, even as a long-time PRS detractor I need to admit this looks awesome.
