    Oh hi, I didn't see you there. I recently got my employee guitar from PRS Guitars and threw the Devin Townsend pickups from Fishman in there. They're pretty great and stuff.

    Here's an album link to imgur : https://imgur.com/a/WBPYEuu

    Looks spectacular, as I would expect from PRS. Fishmans look great too. So what's the deal, you guys get an employee discount or do they let you get a free build after X years of employment? Either way congrats!

    My mouth is overflowing with drool and general jealousness

    Sooooo....when you get an employee guitar, they also do a photoshoot?

    Thanks! Not free, but you pay for the materials. The longer you’re here, the more options are opened up to you.

    Thanks! They don’t do a photo shoot but the timing just worked out. Photography is usually pretty slammed.
    It’s a pretty sweet gig!

    Can't believe how much I love this fade considering that I usually don't dig that look. Stunning axe, brother!

    Wow, this PRS is a total stunner, congrats! I'm super curious about Devin Townsend pickups in Custom 24 (I have 25th Anniversary in my collection and it's my no.1 guitar).

    24-08 with Fishmans? Wiring in the control cavity must be crazy complicated. Beautiful guitar, HNGD!

    It's fun in there. The tone pot is now a push/pull that switches from voice 1 to voice 2. The mini toggles still control the "split" for the bridge and neck pickup individually. So the variety of tones I can get are astounding.

    I’m a fan of the less dramatic color fades so this one is right up my alley... Simply Gorgeous! Actives are not something you see in a PRS everyday.
