    Well in regards to the cracks, I sent a photo to PRS who said the timber might be cracked. Which I suspected it could be because upon review in good light it looked a little more than the usual pocket cracks you get on strats all the time. You know how it's usually a couple of cm long, on the left side it extends for more like 5 or 6 and the finish has chipped out a tiny bit.

    It's no biggie, it will be off to my trusted repairman in a few weeks and if it needs some gluing and clamping it will be done and good as new. Im not into finish repairs - this guitar has been a gig pig and I knew what I was getting into. It's keeping it's scars and if ai ever flip it I will have paperwork for the repair and won't be hiding it!

    As it is it is completely stable and it just plays so damn well.... i honestly think the only improvement i could make is taller fretwire and that's it.

    You know, I hadn’t thought of that being the reason.

    You know what, I have a question about this instrument for you fine folk

    Someone pointed out when I first posted the ad that these originally came with rotary switches. Did they ever come from the factory with the three way toggle that this has?

    I see plenty of images on the net with similar 3 ways with the same tip, and the seller told me the guitar was 100% factory.

    I actually prefer the toggle but I'm just curious

    It is very possible that this was a "special order" and PRS allowed the swap to the 3-way as a standard option.

    This thread might be dead by now... but it may still be relevant, as I just bought my first PRS, a 1989 CE in whale blue with an all maple neck (yeaaaaa baby!)

    As a brand new member, I wanted to say thank you to you guys, as the information you've shared on here helped me make an educated purchase of my new axe. Time to jam!
