The finished product looks so much like the PRS Hollowbodies I think I'd just go with one of them if you found one at a reasonable price. I mean, look at this guitar:

Pretty close, right? Jer could slap a maple board on it for you if you had to have maple.

I like 3 and I like 5 and I like 3 + 5. I would probably go with an ebony fretboard, but that's just me.



This reminds me of a pic somebody posted recently of an RG2728 I think it was...

I reckon having it done in flip-flop paint like the GUS guitars would be very tasty...

I like the fact 3 is popping up so many times as that is prob what I will go for I think. As for the ebony board idea - Im a maple guy, always will be :P

Chlorine is more a mix of 1 and 5. Still a cool finish though
