Oh good god. You guys are not nice..........
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.
That there is a right nice guitfiddle, partner!
You may not sleep so well being out of wings.
Oh, I really dig that...great, now I want one you...
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.
CLASSIC ELECTRIC (CE BOLT-ON): 1988 - Current. 24-fret maple neck, unfaced headstock, dot inlays, alder body, PRS Vintage pickups, tone control, and 3-way toggle selector. Rosewood fretboard, wide-thin neck options by ’89. Black headstock face and 5-way rotary switch by mid-’89. HFS Treble/Vintage Bass finalized by ’91. Maple top version- the CE Bolt-on Maple Top- added in ’89. Mahogany body/ back from ’95 as well as stop-tail option. Solid Mahogany body discontinued in 2000, stop tailpiece & regular neck profile discontinued in 2001. Offered as wide thin, tremolo only from 2001.
Someone buy this before I slip and get my second "first gen" CE in two weeks...
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!
Start a new thread and let’s see some pics.
This^^^^ let's see that bad boy!
Here's the link I shared in the new thread in case you didn't see it
