Massimiliano C. (Italy) I had this beautiful Fender Relic Strat, a Masterbuilt made by Todd Krause, since January 2011. I loved that guitar, but after 4 years of love I started looking for something completely different. Having owned different guitars through years but no PRS, last year I started considering the idea and had a look to a very nice ME Quatro. The trade did not come to an end, so my quest had to go on. Some weeks ago, I contacted another italian guy who was selling a wonderful 1987 Custom 24 in Vintage Yellow, 100% original. We had a long emails exchange but we didn't find an agreement and then I was about to give up another time. Since, after 2 weeks, that guy shot me an email, asking if I were still interested in his CU24. He said that he would like to trade in his guitar for my Strat. Oh well....I asked some time to think about the proposal....I collected some information, thanks also to this forum....and I answered "Ok...let's meet...let's have a try to the guitars....and then we'll decide". And so we've done. I came back home with the wonderful CU24 you can see in the pictures here below. It's a 1987 one, Vintage Yellow, 100% original. Brazilian rosewood, sweet switch, T&B humbuckers, 5-way rotary switch, that magic bridge, awesome moon inlays. Absolutely the best guitar I ever owned, since more than 30 years. No doubt. As I said, I had a couple of serious guitars. But they were reissues of something else. This is not the case of this CU24: this is an original, not a reissue. Exactly THIS guitar, made THAT year, made by THAT man. That's it. It's a real deal. It's a player, it's a guitar to die for, it's here to stay.
