My "new" guitar

When it doesn't fit anywhere else

My "new" guitar

Postby myoung6923 » Mon Jun 23, 2014 5:25 pm

So, I have been using a PRS Custom 24 that I modded with all of the goodies - but I wasn't completely happy with it. So last year I bought another PRS P24 in order to have it done right. The P24 was a limited edition with a piezo in the bridge. I chose this one because it already had a battery compartment, 2 jacks, fixed bridge, blade switch... It had a lot of the hole right where I would want them.

A few months ago I brought it up to AO guitars for the full on Tiger retrofit. It's amazing. I can't speak highly enough about Andrew Olson - great guy and great work. It now has 2 super 2's, an SDS 1, Waldo buffer, OBEL... The piezo didn't make the cut though. Here's a couple of pics and a clip with it...

Well, I had contacted him for months and waited until he told me to bring it up.

Beautiful top and love that color burst. It almost looks like those old hard root beer candies from when I was a kid. I think they were shaped like barrels..... Anyway looks killer

Looks and sounds GREAT, really enjoyed your playing as well. Congrats!

I love my Moriarty and my Alembic, but the guitar that still fits my hand best is the PRS CU22 that I bought new in 1995. It has had its share of bumps and bruises over the years, so there are no barriers to customizing it further. I think I am finally going to get on Andrew's waiting list.

Thanks for posting this!

I used to have a Ressurecion Bolt - but I didn't like it as much as my PRS.
