    So, I've put two coats of dye on it, waiting for it to dry in this cold, damp Victorian weather.

    starting on the final coats
    I might need a pickguard to mount the single coil on. The two humbuckers have their individual mounting brackets... thinking I might get a HSH pickguard and trim it down.

    Any pics? The DSS-1 seems to have vanished from the current PBG collection so I'm not sure what it is. An ST type?

    It's an hsh Floyd rose veneer top. Ebony fretboard with shark tooth inlays. Trying to figure out pics on my phone, it's not obvious

    Ok, 1: the mobile version of this website doesn't have pic upload
    2: the full version doesn't accept big pics.
    So I've emailed some pics to my desktop, and will reduce the size, hopefully they'll upload then

    Unboxing the guitar
    Looks like there was tearthru on the routing between the neck and pickup, the layer under the veneer has a small piece glued in. Shouldn't affect the finish.

    Ok, Second coat on the body. I rounded the edges and created a relief for the high frets ah-la PRS
    Put a coat of colour on the neck, then sanded it down to enhance the figure

    With Intesifier. Yes, I know there is a spot of glue I missed on the lower horn. I can live with it, mostly keen to get it together.
    I've applied multiple final coats to it, they're still soaking in
