    My 89 CE is the same color but I have a black head stock no cover on pickups and headstock just has Paul's sig. Didn't realize there were different versions

    I was the same way. When I got my Artist with a one piece burl top I thought that's what PRS should be. Awesome wood tops. But.....When I saw an electric blue one I fell in love and wanted one.
    When this popped up I was excited and to make a deal.

    970 sounds about right. I have number 487 and mine's an 88 with the "PRS electric" on the headstock.

    The SD pups are probably after market. I like 59's in my CE. They really respond well.

    Thanks. I like the tree. Mini Xmas lights in December should do the trick.

    The seller said it had wear on it appropriate for age. But it arrived better than that.

    There's a spot on the back of the neck that is rubbed off but you cant feel it.
