Hello

I picked up what looks to be a 1988 Studio. It has a pretty good ding in the bottom with a hunk of the finish gone.
In researching I see other Studios with moons and a sweet switch. I also read that there is a standard HSS model back then, but not sure if that is what this is.

Either way, the neck is great and I love the era and will most likely keep it.

Thanks

It's a Studio. Nice one too. Birds were an option. Looks like the sweet switch has been replaced. The PTC can fix the chip or you can just leave it as a battle scar. Congratulations!

Beautiful! And that bit of character on the lower bout was earned after 26 years. I'd leave any 80s PRS with player wear as-is.

Dang, that looks so nice! Love the color with the birds! And I agree with everyone else (because I'm a follower, not a leader), leave that battle scar as-is, it gives it character.

Here's a Standard 22 Studio that I owned for a while:

I didn't think the studio ever came with a sweet switch. I've never seen one.

I didn't either but I looked it up in the book. It said the early ones did. The book has been known to be wrong in a few things. This may be one of them.
