This.

Though given the choice I'd go for all black hardware... the whole stealth option!!

I do like the all black stealth look, but with the cream PUP rings and chrome hardware it really reminds me of my first PRS. Whale Blue, cream PUPS, chrome hardware - unfortunately I had to sell it. So I will go along this path for now, and maybe change it to all black later Smile

So with some tuners from Westbone and new knobs from Tvill installed (thanks guys), I am nearly done with this one. It's all wired up except for the jack, and I think I'm going to make some new plates for the back so they look new, or if I use the ones it has, I at least want new screws so it is looking as new as possible.

Here's how it looks currently:

Thanks eh! Each one I refinish has been better than the previous, and to be honest, practice makes closer to perfect each time. I'm hoping the two finishes I'm working on currently come out even better, but I am proud of this one particularly and appreciate all the nice comments from all during this thread.

I messaged Iceman at Christmas and he is well, but very busy. He undertook to return to the fold when time permits.

2nd what Graham said.  I'd texted our beloved Steve of the frozen north about a month back, he's alive and well just pulled too thin right now.
