    Of all my builds I think my PRS-1H was the hardest to get to a point where I had any thoughts it was kinda right, and while I'm loving how yours is going Andy I'm also seeing things in the photos that based on my experience it has me wondering how it will turn out..... Yours is Blue and Chrome, mine is Red and Gold, but other than the colour and the PRS shape there are striking similarities in your photos to my build that have me cringing with a little bit of concern ... Yeah, I had a devil of a time getting even colour intensity across the entire body, with patchy light and dark areas trying to outshine the flame. On mine now you can only see the flame if the light hits it right, otherwise for the most part it just looks like a solid Red faced guitar... a subtle flame to the extreme...

    A future point to watch out for elsewhere - I thought I had set my neck just fine with the neck tight and seated flat in the body pocket. But after finally getting some strings on and with a dead straight neck I find I can't get the action low enough... Bridge hard against the body still has me at 8mm at the 24th fret, so mine though it will intonate fine will never be a shred demon... Seems on mine there isn't quite enough angle on the back of the neck foot to allow some bridge height and also have reasonably low action.

    Thanks again for the kind comments guys. This build is actually turning out better than I expected. Marcel, I am definitely going to learn from your advice.
    Progress over the last week...finally cleaned up the binding

    The Cream binding certainly contrasts better on yours than mine...

    Okay....its been a while......

    As this build is turning out better than expected, I needed some help with those ummmmm cross thingys stuck all over the fretboard.

    I approached fellow forumite and all round great bloke Frankenwashie!!!!

    A deal was struck and FW agreed to knock the cross covered fretboard off and replace it with one beautiful ebony fretboard (side dot inlays only)

    He was kind enough to send me some photos of the process...

    Ah, I saw this happening on instagram. He's done a top job, and it looks much better for it.

    Cheers Pabs, its a lot more nerve wracking when its not one of your own builds.

    wow, that is cool. I must admit the cross inlays on that model are really not for me too.
