Well then... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ue1-lnHVkpQ

I'll show you when the pickups are changed and it's restrung. If you've even thought of checking out my (recently started-don't be too harsh) FIREBIRD BUILD IN MY SIG then you could see what I got early!





Also, anyone know about the (obviously fake) PAFs in it? There were two (obviously) one said #2 and one said #3.


Review: Well, as the title says, it's a POS. The pickups in it were counterfeit PAFS. There are a few major dings in it. String spacing is terrible (the low E is over the 12th fret dot, the high e is about 2 millimeters from the edge of the fretboard). Neck is comfortable. Put new pups in, sounds ridiculously bright. Eh, it's ok I guess.

So is everything else in this thread so far, there isn't much to work off. If you're going to point out that I was off topic. At least do so for everyone else.

Everyone else being off topic was innocent. You starting a discussion about how good or bad PRS guitars are was inflammatory and had the potential to start off a flame war. PM me about it if you want to discuss it further.

Eh, it's not actually THAT bad. It just has a few rather large scratches, the wiring was awful, and the setup was just horrendous. It's fixed in the pictures though. Plus the string spacing is even worse than a Wishnevsky.

i dig it. looks good from pics.

if you do a little buffing with really fine cut polishing compound 3M makes a nice product. some may not agree but i have done it on several weathered guitars as far as paint goes. a little #0000 steel wool on the chrome, dress up the frets. then she will look almost new.

is it set neck or bolt on? if its bolt on, you may be able to loosen or remove the neck (all related parts too), you could do a little bit of shimming or straitening of the neck or drill new holes.

shimming really isn't that hard, just look into it a little bit. of course getting a new nut slotted in correct widths would help as well, between the two if its bolt on, its a good project.

i enjoy refinishing, so maybe you would like to do that too. a mentor of mine has a downdraft spray booth in his shop (he is a metal sculptor) he lets me use that for paint. i have spray-bombed a few guitars and they turned out quite well.
