    Hello everyone, I'm looking to buy my first PRS, and I found this guy selling his. These are the photos he provided, and tbh it seems quite real, but I'm just being really careful haha. He did say he has changed the pickups and the locking tuners.[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    From those pics, I would say legit. A shot of the back of the head stock, with the serial number (block out the actual last couple of digits) would tell for sure.

    Looks like a legit SE. Agreed, just double check the serial but if it's a good deal snag it.

    Legit SE, with the mods as noted plus the Triple Shot pickup rings.

    Thank you all very much for the replies. I think I might be a bit too paranoid when buying second hand from the internet lol. I'll contact the seller and check the serial number. Cheers!
