It's a limited edition of 100 guitars, made in 2010 to launch the 53/10 pickups, which were the lowest output of the 5x/xx of that era.So what's a 53/10?
Is that a CU body or a McCarty body, or something totally different?
Yeah they don't take long to gloss up.
Congrats! I like the 53/10s. One of my favorite neck HBs and the coil splits are terrific too.
Mine didn’t come with a satin finish though...
Here’s one of the siblings. This was one of the cover girls in the PRS advert poster for this run. I had it glossed up by PTC. Your top is no doubt nicer though!
I love the 53/10s, had a wonderful SC58 with them, and like an idiot, sold it. When I realized the lunacy of doing that, they were no longer made.
Here's another sibling. One of the two natural ones that came to the UK
Here's the world guitar video of this guitar
Yeah it does sound very Tele like in that video. It doesn't with me though, it's a warm sounding traditional classic humbucker through my setup. But then I did disconnect the treble bleed cap on mine and that stops some of that 'Tele' sound.That sounds awesome. Like my dream Tele. So... what happened to the 53/10s? They ever put them in core model CU22s? I'd be interested in something like that, or in a Standard McCarty
A little piece of me dies everytime I hear that alpha/numeric sequense...I feel your pain..I want an SC58 soooo much...but I too have the same issue with the dreaded "Cootie"(Sigh)
Maybe...just maybe... the guitar gods will have mercy on us and dig a couple of "Cootie Free" models outta the back room.
What? A boy can dream can't he?
