    FInally received my Used PRS SE Custom 24 30th Anniversary in Vintage Sunburst Quilted Maple Top. This Guitar is absolutely Gorgeous!. As soon as I had it tuned I knew I made the right decision. Here are some pics:

    As a side note: For being used the guitar is in amazing condition. No chips, dents or other signs of wear. Frets need a quick polish but nothing I can't handle. It needs strings, but. I anticipated that. New PRS 9's will be ordered shortly. The Term Bar is missing, but I was provided the original soft case, which contained the original tools and cable bag with an extra trem spring.

    Seriously! The Color and quilt give it a kind of 3D Fire Effect.

    You lucked out! I thought it was a private stock or artist package when I first saw the pic, before reading the post.

    I'm still wondering if this was one of the 200 European limited editions made. I didn't get any paperwork to tell.

    UPDATE: went through the Guitar pretty thoroughly the last two nights. Here's what I saw and did:

    Body, Neck and Head finish is free of scratches, nicks and wear of any kind

    Strings are original from 2015, as I said 2 sets of PRS 9's are on order

    All electronics are fully functional, no crackles, pops or fuzz

    Previous owner (or someone) tried to readjust the action, E A and D strings were pretty high off the frets and intonation was way out. Lowered the 3 high strings to where they should be to the neck, and then lowered all of them an additional half turn of the set screws. Intonation was then reset, (Will do it again when I install the new strings.

    Frets are like new, but need a minor polishing, fret board is clean, but a little dry. I'll take care of that when I change strings and polish frets.

    Tuners are original, operate very smoothly and needed a little tightening.

    All in all this guitar is easily "Like New" and worth 2 to 3 time what I paid for "Used" (I'll tell you if you ask) I honestly do not believe the seller knew what he/she had, or was really desperate for money, because they accepted my offer fairly quickly.

    Gotta Love those EBAY finds!

    I dig it man. I have the exact same guitar with a very similar quilt top. Unfortunately it’s on the block. It pains me to sell it.
