    First post here! Just acquired a drop dead mint ME1. Took the photo below yesterday! The serial number is 4 88845. PRS Customer Service said the guitar is from early 2004. I can’t find a single other 2004 ME1 with a serial number that’s earlier than mine; does anyone have one that’s earlier than mine? Thanks in advance.

    I used to own 4_86710. It was one of the first 2 or 3 to leave the factory.

    Do you have the 6-screw plate on the case?

    Congrats. I saw one like this in Belgium a few years ago. Are you in (or did you get it from) Europe, per chance?

    Thanks! Nope, I got it locally. I don't believe the guitar ever left North America (I'm in Canada).
