    If you mean the white one it’s in, yes.

    You missed your window - they're much deeper in the compound than they used to be.

    How many of you have a PRS from within the first 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?

    My first is a 97 model Custom 22, so 12 years or so after production started

    I know most of us will have seen this video, but I feel it has its place here!



    It never ceases to amaze me that Paul, despite being 29-30 years old, looked like a teenager! I’m wondering how many venues he was refused at, whilst trying to get in to show his guitars, as he looked under age.

    I know the coloured finishes are so, so amazing, but you can’t beat a bit of natural.

    Love it!:D

    Thanks! That was never listed as an available "color" so from what I understand, it's sort of unusual/limited production model. I actually called the factory with a question when I got it, and when the guy asked for my serial number, he almost immediately said "oh you got that one!" I joked "is that good or bad?" and he said " we don't even list the natural flamed maple top as an available finish, so that one is rather rare and I think they're very nice." I was surprised that he that quickly knew what guitar I had. He said he remembered seeing it when it was finished, and really liked it. (I wonder who that was I talked to, back in 97 or 98. He told me his name, but I didn't remember it).

    That’s a great story. It’s amazing how these guys remember the instruments!

    She’s very pretty!

    It took me until 96 to free up enough to get a Custom 22. Then a few months later I added the HB they sent to Canada for a trade show - I bought it before the show so no one else could make a better offer.

    But I do have one other one that might be an archives candidate - not until after it visits a key founding member though.

    I’m turning 30 this year and would love to have a birth year guitar... So, anyone got a spare 1988 Custom 24 in Vintage Yellow? :D
