Delayed by a day, but I finally received the 1990 CE-24 I bought off Reverb last weekend!: Yes, I'm gonna fix the Christmas tree once I swap out strings. It feels like it has 9s on there, I usually play 10s. But a couple of my PRSi have 9s. Waddaya think, should I move up to my usual 10s? Some buckle rash, but hey, this was definitely a player's guitar, and it is 28 years old! The 5-way pickup selector knob is different from the volume and tone. I assume that is not stock, but I ask the forum to clarify: Also not stock are the strap buttons. Are these some variant of strap-locks, or just someone's preference for something easier to slip on/off? Not sure I will bother to swap them out. I don't believe the seller pointed this out, but I guess I'm not surprised: some damage or finish removed where it probably hung on a wall hanger (similar finish removed on other side of neck), I assume this is therefore a nitro finish? My first nitro finish guitar, I think. All in all about what I expected - this is not a mint guitar, was not sold as such. Oh, I plugged it into a little battery-powered Roland Cube, and it sounds quite nice at "office with door closed" levels. No scratchy pots, either. Seller photos indicated HFS and VB pickups, just like my 2002 CU24. Can't wait to get it home and exercise it through the HXDA, Sweet 16, and/or the Archon!
