Poly doesn't age and check like nirto.
So, it's a bit strange IMO.
However, if it floats your boat then that's all that matters.
How was it done? I notice that all the checking goes in the same direction.
i think it looks pretty cool, especially when the top is gold
Grissom's aren't Poly......
Thats freaking awesome Todd!
Thanks Bob....I can't wait to get it back. The PRS PTC team did an OUTSTANDING job....
I am not a PRS fan but that looks like job well done. Enjoy
I hereby announce my new PRS Relicing Service.
For a nominal fee of 100 dollars, I will expertly relic your PRS.
Turnaround time is about 10 years.
haha but I think you are charging tooo little! Remember PRS afficionados "can" afford
Agree! Is this a service now offered by the PTC?
I don't think so. I believe this was a one-off favor.
Todd that's badass.
I extend my jealousies. I'd love to rock that guitar.
Awesome. Congrats big time.
At first thought it seemed weird. PRSii are known for being so pretty. But approaching 30 years this is actually a really cool, unique idea. And it looks great. Any wear marks on the wood?
I asked that there be no phony sandpaper rubs as I don't like them. These a the only pics I've got from PRS. Paul Miles from the Private Stock team and Shawn from the PTC team had full Artistic license. As soon as I got the message that Paul Reed Smith had given the ok for the project, I just shipped them the guitar....the 85 spec raw unplated 1-piece bridge from John Mann and a set of pickups. I told them I wanted something that looked like it had spent it's life in a smokey dive bar. I've been told there's a ton of little "extras" that have been done to make it fit the part. The small original 80's headstock logo IMHO is a great touch. I look forward to finding the rest. What a great company.....I'm lucky to be playing their stuff!!!
I'm sorry the shop damaged your guitar so badly. Good that you photographed the damage. You can use those photos in court.
I'm kidding! I actually think that looks pretty cool.
It looks really cool and I'm generally not a fan of relicing. It just seems a little odd because a PRS doesn't seem like a traditional working man's guitar that would have ended up like that through years of usage. It's almost like relicing a mink coat or a Lamborghini. Again, it does look really nice though.
