    It’s like someone started peeling the protective covering off, and then realized it wasn’t a protective covering, but the actual top.

    I was more surprised by the fact that PRS made a multiscale 7-string. I wasn't expecting that.

    What's interesting is that it's their normal body top carve. So to get that asymmetrical seam, they top has to be thicker on one side than the other, and the body wood the opposite. Which...is interesting. I that how knaggs does it?

    The first half of the Oughts were pretty cheeky.

    Yep, should have been a reverse headstock. Wasted opportunity.

    The ol' Aldo Nova. They did Standards with the Explorer stock as well.

    It makes me want an explorer with an open book headstock.

    Love my XXX, feels right for 80's riffs. Though it's a bit more green now.

    I wonder if they did this to get Joe Knaggs' attention. I believe he was beveling in this style with his namebrand guitars before Jeff Kiesel took it to extremes. Maybe he wanted to do this before he left PRS.

    PRS builds you whatever you want as long as there are enough 0s lining up at the end of the price tag.

    I wonder if we can open a debate about the tonal properties of such piece of gear... or if the performance could benefit if the tool had been positioned/fitted first at the lower strings instead... huuummm, so many questions... do you think that if we all mailed at Hipshot they would build such contraption? It would surely sound better... maybe Graphtech could pick up this idea and make a Tusk version of it...?

    The tailpiece material makes pretty much zero difference in tone to me. Not enough kinetic energy from the strings is going through the tailpiece to have any meaningful effect.
