Sorry I’ve been MIA. I’ve been the busiest retired guy known to Man. Lol.

I’ll bore you all with the backstory. I’m back in 95 when this guitars came out I drooled for one. 1998 there was a teal one for sale in a store called Toys From The Attic in White Plains NY. I was so close to pulling the trigger but, at the time I really needed another trem PRS for playing out, so I passed on it. For years it haunted me. I’ve always admired the beauty of these guitars, the inlays, ebony board, big leaf maple top, semi-hollow body, and McCarty pups/electronics. From time to time I checked the market, searching for the right one, at the “right price” in very clean condition. I found it. Here is my newly adopted 1995,10th Anniversary McCarty. Absolutely stunning!

BTW…. The Christmas tree is horrendous on this. I will fix that when I change the strings. The store put a fresh set of strings on so I might as well take advantage of using them for a while..

Nice
 
Absolutely beautiful!
Little tree adjustments…:p:D
I remember looking at the ads for TFTA. Never visited, though.
I know, my OCD won’t allow me to leave the wings like that for long…. I just hate to waste the fresh set of strings the shop put on. I’ll just keep staring the 10 anniversary eagle on the headstock instead.;)
