Brazilian Rosewood neck. Ordered on April 16, 1990. Customized special order by using his Signature Aurora's "Great White's" neck and bridge Evans E-1 Eliminators single-coil passive pickups with active preamp electronics. Rhythm E-1 was originally mounted in a humbucking frame using spacers to hold the single coil in position. The bridge single-coil routing was performed by Paul Reed Smith himself since PRS had no current single coil pickup models and routing templates available at the time. Alex requested a 3-way toggle selector switch in place of the standard push/pull 8-way rotary. Later in the "Roll The Bones Tour", the neck E-1 Eliminator pickup was replaced by an early 1990's Seymour Duncan Trembucker. This came from the former Signature Guitar Company's old supply stock. The company had just started offering the choice of Signature active (aka, the prototype to what would later be the EMG SA model), Evans Eliminator or Seymour Duncan Trembucker pickups just closing for business in 1992. The Trembucker remains installed to this today. This guitar is now only used for live performances of the song "Time Stands Still" from the album "Hold Your Fire." Alex originally recorded this song using his customized flip-flop Pearl White Signature Aurora model and dubbed in his 1956 Fender Reissue model Telecaster, purchased circa 1983-4.
