    Borrowed this one from friend of mine, very good guitar, but I hate that rotary pickup selector. No idea which pickup I'm at, If you here most likely you know bit of the history about this guitar.




    it's a Limited Edition model, produced between 1989 and 1991, 300 were made. With a one piece mahogany set neck, Brazilian rosewood fretboard, Abalone bird inlays,24 frets, hand sighned signature on the headstock, gold plated tuners. A semi hollow body with figured Cedar top, Vintage treble and bass humbucker pickups and a 5 way rotary knob. With a gold plated stop tail bridge and tailpiece.

    Miss mine, had #280 of the run with a scarlet red figured redwood top. Dibs if it ever surfaces, last I heard it was in Cali somewhere.

    I had one. Forget the number. It now resides in the PRS Archives...

    I traded it to Paul...

    Nice vid.

    RE: 5-way
    Get to know the rotary, once you go thru 1-5 (especially in a jam setting) you'll find it fairly simple. I don't know all the PU configurations but I believe 1 is bridge only, 5 is neck only, and 2,3,4 are combinations.

    I didn't think of PU positions though, in my warped way of thinking for me it was:
    1-Rock
    2,3,4 -everything in between, from Blues, R&B, Country, to Alt, etc.
    5 -Jazz, R&B

    Become one with the rotary, it's part of our heritage.;)

    There were a few more than 300 made. A few numbers were duplicated.

    They should both be 'Vintage Bass LE' pickups.

    Nice...has a very "conch"-y look! Agree re 5-way knob, I have one on my 06 CE24, can't stand it, never know where I am

    I don't have one of these guitars but I used to really dislike the rotary switching.

    I don't mind it so much anymore. I've got three guitars with rotary switching with one of those being an old 97 ce22 beater. I have played it out a lot because it sounds good so that kind of got me over the rotary hate.

    Mine was in mint condition. Chicago Music Exchange listed it at $3,495, which I thought was low.
