I picked this up from a shop in France 3 years after being on the hunt for a blue one with birds for a while. Hasn’t played it for a while so decided to film the entire process and share some thoughts as well.

I also compared it to the modern Custom 24 and McCarty 594 briefly. It does sound really different. Higher output than I expected.

Overall I remain stunned how much of a finished modern product they made 37 years ago. The pickups sound has changed and the control layout has been improved , but otherwise they perfected the formula right from the start

 
Birth year guitars are special , Paul was 30 years too late for me .. but I did get a nice birth year guitar anyway

Excellent!!

Also too old for a birth-year PRS. Really wish I had purchased a birth-year Gibson, or Fender when I had the chance. Now I'd have to mortgage our house to own one LOL!

Fun video! Always enjoy seeing folks talk about their passions-- especially when it's guitar themed :D
