    it doesn't really bother me.
    but i do prefer solid colored guitars over figured ones for this very reason. If given the choice, id take loose figured tops over tight pop-corn type pattern. you never know how the finish will be taken up by a certain grain, and its too many variable ad-hoc stuff happening.

    if it plays well, and is resonant, at the end of the day, i'm playing it for myself, and not for my or others viewing pleasure.

    They're different instruments altogether. Jason Richardson sig is the closest to JP, but it's a sig, and it's still fancy af.

    Completely disagree.

    Cheapest MMs go for $2.5k, Majesties start at $3.7k. Plus there's Sterling, maybe with simpler specs and simpler opaque finishes they'll be better?

    Body too. Yeah, that's a problem :lol: I'm guessing as a sig, even they dropped the piezo altogether, put a fixed bridge, and slapped a simple finish, it would still not be sub $3k.

    It's not that hard to source good quilted/flame maple without grain issues like that ffs. At 6k usd that is beyond unacceptable imo.

    It would bother me on a $1500 guitar.

    One some 1500$ guitars maybe. If that particular guitar was 1500$ though I'd buy it in an instant, no questions asked :lol:

    As far as that particular blemish or anomaly, no way I'd be happy with it.. especially in such an aesthetically prominent location. And if I was posting about my indecisiveness before even purchasing, that would seal the deal to pass on it.

    Unless I knew I could flip it at some point and get a return on my investment, It would bother me even more that I threw down six grand on any guitar... even a dream guitar but different strokes I guess.

    I’ve seen so many PRSi like this on Sweetwater, it’s honestly the reason I don’t have more than 1. It seems like it’s only certain colors too and of course, all the colors I want

    If they gave me another Majesty with it, I'd take it into consideration.
