I love PRS guitars, but the price tag is too high for me to have any more than the one I have. So I decided to make a practice one in preparation for making a nice hollowbody version. This is the practice one. Just done with maple and alder I had in the shop, along with some birdseye maple for the neck and pau ferro for the fretboard, also that I just had kicking around in the shop. I made templates for the outer shape and carved top and went to town. It is finished in Formby’s low gloss tung oil with paste wax. I love how it turned out. On to the real one!
Hmmm, it looks like it has rotated my photos, sorry ‘bout that!
