    Eye Candy Thread !!! :omg :banana :eeks :dude :love:

    I have a PRS EmpGuitar with a PS finish, but I won't bother you with it. It would be in last place by the end of this thread. My Arch Top is a rare treat to play, look me up if you're ever near Denver!

    I don't actually own any of these because they are insanely expensive, but as a lefty, PRS offerings are pretty rare and generally consist of limited runs of Custom 22s and Custom 24s. As such, Vic of Lefty Guitars Only has been doing runs of lefty Private Stock guitars and they have been pretty amazing:

    I don't have anything as mind blowing as some of those! But I do have two PRS Custom 22's that I really love and gig with.

    Here's my '96 with Tom Holmes double cream pickups.

    And my '02 with Dragon II's:

    A cross between a DC 245 and DGT. Great sounding instrument.

    In Private Stock it can get a little funky to define what's what. This is a "McCarty Trem [sic]" on the PS spec sheet because that's how it was ordered. David Grissom saw it on Facebook and said "Nice DGT!" Which begs the question: what makes a DGT a DGT? Yeah it's a McCarty with a vibrato and two volume controls, but it doesn't have DGT pickups (it has 58/15s) and the body is both thicker than a McCarty/DGT (it's single cut thickness) and it's chambered fairly significantly; it's pretty close to being semi-hollow. So is it still a DGT?

    In my mind it's just a tweaked version of the KingsleyDGT above.

    I love PRS guitars, Paul is one of the reasons I started guitar building. His original design was a stroke of genius.
    He was a real maveric when it came to finishes and CNC machines. I have nothing but the utmost respect for him and his company.......
    That's why I can't understand that when they finale decided to make a TOM stop tail type bridge setup they chose to build that blocky unsightly chunk of square stock. WTF were they thinking with that? He didn't think to round it out a little bit? It looks like something someone would have made in metal shop class on an old Bridgeport.

    LOL! I completely agree. People seem to think it works & sounds great, but I can't get past how it looks.

    For that matter I've never thought his single-cut shape is "right." I'm not one of those "only a Les Paul looks right" people, but I dunno, there's something off about it. That spruce one I have is such a nice guitar that I've learned to get past it, but still...

    I really like the singlecut shape but I'd agree that the stoptail is kind of strange
