    Hi:

    New member here. Bought a 91 Custom 24 that seller "claims" has Brazilian rosewood board.

    However, it certainly doesn't look to be now that I have received it and studied it in person.

    When did PRS stop using Brazilian? Was it before 91, or during 91. And, is there a way to verify using serial number and contacting PRS?

    Many thanks.

    I missed Birds and Moons, so this is satisfying...

    I think the transition was in 90. Certainly my 91 does not have a brazzy board.

    I understood '90 to be the transition year as well. I've not seen a regular production '91 with a BRW fretboard.
