I always thought the swirled ebony on my two Prestiges kicked some serious ass. You be the judge.

And I wish I could get a better picture of how intense the flame is on my LP, but here's the best I've gotten so far (it does it NO justice whatsoever...):

That is one sick fretboard. What kind of guitar is that?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Lacewood. I'm using it on my Firebird custom build, but I'm going to give it a stained red finish.

Too many pics to post... but the Dirty 100 PRS models are the best flame I've ever seen in my life... the case is just as nice. I got to try out #27. Sick guitar it is.

I've always thought this Conklin was extremely interesting...



If anyone finds a nicer looking chunk of mahogany than my Schecter I'll give you a hug.


It glows under bright light (pre sanding and oiling)

You either like it or hate it. I love how raw it looks... the guys at conklin were worried about the durability. I think they said they jumped on the wood like a trampoline first for good measure.

I've always wanted a guitar with the bark still on it. Don't think it's too feasible though.

My Dk2 after I sanded and stained it, it was red. Sorry no good camera, but it looks really nice in person.

*BIG SWIRLY PICTURES*

I've always wondered how they get that. Is that a natural pattern in the wood? That guitar is the only place I've ever seen that pattern.
