That doesn't look like a very thick top. Is he planning on carving it?

Looks cool so far, but as Darren said that top looks to be 1/4" which is definitely not thick enough to do the PRS carves...

I just noticed that myself actually thanks for pointing that out. I will definitly bring it up to Michael.


Actually nevermind. I looked at my other pics of it and the top was pretty thick when it first went on. I think maybe in these pics it has some initial carving done on the top.

Actually yes it does. Look at the shadow of the ruler.

If you read pk's response it looks like some of the carve is already done in that pic.

Hmmm have to check out some single cut pics, as it occurs to me I was looking at that thinking of the carve on the double cut

It looks like the top has already been carved, as possumkiller pointed out. I think the other thing that's throwing it off for me is that the mahogany body is VERY thick... like Les Paul thick or more. PRSes are quite thin in comparison.

here are some more pics

if you check PRSs specs the hardtail singlecuts are LP thickness and the tremolo ones are PRS doublecut thickness except the Tremonti model.

also look in the bridge pickup hole to see how thick the top is.

Just a six. Actually Im going to pretend to be Opeth with it lol. The back of the headstock will be signed by the maker and have the Shamray logo only it will look like the writing on the back of a private stock headstock. And the serial number will be my sons birthday. Yeah I know the headstock isnt EXACTLY shaped like a PRS they could shave some off the top but to be honest I really dont mind at all.
