    Hello all, got this recently and am trying to authenticate it.
    Please look at photo's and let me know what you think.
    The Tuner backs have PRS stamped on them instead of the big S, I don't see any Milcom markings on the bridge plate but it is a one piece and has all of the characteristics of the originals. The case is black lined not blue but correct in all other aspects. Also, I know anybody with a pen could write under the bridge pick up.
    But some of these details seem right for 1986 but the number on this one is 5 and under 400
    Maybe an 85 that got finished early in 86?

    An early Standard should be a staple in every collection. Congrats on the new addition!

    You should probably send that to me, as it will need a couple of years of authenticating. You really need to be sure, after all.

    Thanks for the love everybody! I am really enjoying it, just wondering if It was a guitar that might have been at a NAMM show with the letters under the treble pick up.
    I tried to look at the old birds and moons forum for some more in-sight on some of the details like the tuners and case but not having much luck searching.
    What ever happened to SGT. Steiner's website's on vintage PRS? They all seem to be shut down.
