Do you have the MODCAT?
2004-07 is the time of the so called 513 RW (Rosewood). 2007-09 they changed the neck material to mahogany (fretboard remained rosewood). Hence it is possible, that this guitar is - as already mentioned - on of the first 513 with mahogany neck.
The tuners are typical for...
Indeed. If I want to hit the road with a Mercedes, I call a Taxi.
Regardless, it is strange that PRS guitars aren't not more expensive than the US prices. Importing as a private person a PRS currently from the USA to Europe is more expensive than buying it in an European guitar shop.
Via social media - and of course the official PRS homepage - you can compare either the available stock an the pricings of PRS accessories.
Living in Europe first we don't have the full stock and secondly the prices are higher, too.
I don't know the rational of PRS USA having decide about this...
I played one once.
Aswell a Silver Sky.
In terms of optical appearance the Fiore looks more worthy than the Silver Sky. The haptical feeling of the Fiore was better for my hands, too.
But tonally my 513s don't make my seek both. Those core 513s deliver USA PRS expectations without...
I'm late to thank my fellow brothers in arms for having served or for continued serving.
I was around observing the training of Ukraine soldiers and had a meaningful talk with their senior officer.
And the tape wasn't found in the tomb of one of the pyramids of Giza or in the Kings Valley?
Very cool that musical pieces had been conserved from those days. That was pretty much a very dymanic time with the Nam protests. One year prior Woodstock Festival.
Basically we need do something for our living, as long we don't want to be depended on support. There are jobs which combine passion and income, others income only - maybe combined with toxic feelings.
We could stand those toxic environments - for some time.
But there is a risk of psychological...

Are they too nice?
I didn't purchase them to watch them behind glass. They are bought to be played. I take care of them, because the look was asweel a factor to be considered prior acquisation.
Their reason to exist is to be an instrument to make music.
Everything I found out is not really hot stuff information. These 30th Anniversary PS are reminiscences to the old workshop manual craftmanship - and Paul's blue prints. Headstock angle, heel design, flatter violin carving. No CNC, but manual carving. And a different carved lower horn (a little...
I have a German friend - same academical education like you - who is very much into the pre-factory phase and started a thread in a German forum. Maybe he could unveil the curtain of unconciousness :-) I will ask him.
(Not to jump into our personal area I inform you, that a certain...
A well deserved achievement being selected as an endorser though, especially of a really big brand.
And obviously he is very much confident with Fender guitars, that they turn out to be the voice of his soul and fingers.
Guitar-wise your son is currently still not fully on the bright side, the PRS trust hasn't been gained until now, has it?
Well, it's awesome, that he rocks on stages in front of thousands of excited fans.
