Hi guys,

I recently bought a PRS from 2000(NGD thread coming after i test it and record some clips).

The PRS has a blue flamed maple top on it but it looks a bit faded. You can see the color of the wood shining through a bit. When changing the strings i discovered this:

There's dark blue under the bridge. I see no reason for this so i presume this guitar was once this dark blue, correct? And the rest probably faded with the sunlight right?


Anyways thanks guys

PRS blues tend to fade more than other colors. That is a serious fade to blue/grey.

My 2003 CE22 was Mateo Blue... it looks teal/green now (cool color).

Haha, stay tuned , i will be posting a NGD with plenty of pictures when i have the time to record a soundclip and have had some hours with the guitar.

Yeah it's a serious fade, It still looks good though and has a special effect. IRL it looks more turquoise than light blue. But i don't have any way of making quality pictures unfortunately.

They sun fade. Its common. Emerald green fades to a cool sage color.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
