Thread: PRS F Hole Style

  1. #1

    PRS F Hole Style

    Whilst i'm still building my very first kit, i've always loved PRS style guitars, especially the headstock shape and the extra routing on the body (which i don't have the skills or tools to pull off). I would love to build something like this.

    There's a few build diaries on here for that kit, including one of my own. It doesn't have the same routing as a PRS, around the edge and horns. Not quite as arched / contoured.
    I know that some other companies have kits which are closer to a PRS so I think this suggestion for a new kit from Pitbull is still valid. And a single f hole with belly cut thinline, similar to the new strats and teles, but in a PRS body shape would be really nice. I'd buy one.

    A single f hole with a thinline would be awesome. The new strats and teles look amazing as thinline and i reckon a kit as you have describe above would definitely have me hooked!

    Except any PBG kit like that will have a huge F hole that looks out of place. I don't think they have any small F-hole templates.

    That is very true.

    Although the thinline Strat f-hole doesn't seem as big. I guess it doesn't have binding inside the hole like the PRS-1H does. Perhaps that's why they're bigger? And the use of veneers.

    There are a couple of PRS styled scratchies slowly evolving in the Lab, we do enjoy a good PRS.
    IGOR, I know it can be done, the question is, should we be the ones doing it?
