    Now I want another PRS. :lol:

    It's either the Zach Myers sig or this...

    Replace the bridge pickup with either a black, higher quality P90 or a Filtertron-style pickp, black pickguard, and POSSIBLY get risky and install a Tele neck pickup.

    If I owned this I would still want this picture in a frame on my nightstand... Dat top + color :yum:

    Tracking one down is proving bloody difficult (without paying $7k CAD, that is).

    EDIT: You guys think GC would price match to one that was on Reverb (sold new / new price, of course)?

    I’ve gotten GC and Sweetwater to match prices on Reverb as long as the item is new and from an authorized retailer. Once they weren’t authorized, but got it through anyways.

    Wouldn't mind an EMG 58 because it sounds like P90 according to EMG, and an EMG HA.

    Hopefully not the one from GC... that belonged to a guy on another forum (forget which one) he sold it and bought it back then returned it as there was some weirdness going on with a hump in the neck.

    Sorry for the double-post, but this is news worthy.

    I have been trying to get Guitar Center to price match that ESP I posted earlier (as they're just about the last people stateside with one in stock) with what MusicStoreLive had it posted for (about a $1000 USD difference). I was resisted by multiple employees at their call center and Kansas distribution center (where it is) for various reasons - it's not in stock on MSL thus they can't match it, MSL isn't an authorized ESP dealer so they can't match it, etc. Figured I just needed the right person with precisely the right amount of knowledge - not too much, not too little - to make it happen. After about 8 different calls getting different people I got one wonderful lady, smooth talked the hell out of her - got my price match. Life is good.

    So back at the end of August, this came in for me. (Not this one pictured but the same model and colour)

    [​IMG]
    The problem was, it had a horrible twist in the neck. I can’t believe they let this one go from the factory and neither could my retailer or the distributor. I’ve had several Axcess guitars over the last 10 years and they have all had some kind of strange issue...whether it be as simple as a couple of inlays coming unglued, crooked strap pins, bad nitro finishes, etc. Most of it was easily fixed but not this. The Floyd was absolutely 35 degrees down on the right side. The distributor sent it back and it was confirmed as a defective unit, unfortunately. I was pretty ticked as it was the model I wanted and I liked the extra features on it but they wouldn’t be able to replace it as it is a limited run. The distributor came back and offered me a Lifeson Axcess for my trouble as such and I took that at no extra cost. I got this version (picked it up on Friday). No complaints. Have to take the back off and jack to separate the Piezo circuit from the magnetics. Not a hard job as I did this for another friend on his guitar from a different brand that had this kind of of setup on it. Not as much a fan of the pickups so I wil change those out as well. Other than that, a really really nice playing guitar and the neck is perfect on it. There are no flaws on it per se, so no issues. They had told me it was used for a product demonstration once. There are no marks or fret wear on it. The distributor gave me an extra year warranty on it as well. (The Gibson lifetime warranty is valid up here in Canada).

    What's different? Just the bridge? I love it regardless.

    As far as I can tell, yes, just the bridge. Also the fact that the white finish its original and not a re-finish like his other's.
    Not sure if anything else other than the bridge is different.
