    As picky as I am about certain things, and while I agree on the pups as a whole, I liked all of my old PRS pups too! Dragon 2s and ARTIST series I could get along fine with. 57/08s remain my favorite all around PRS pups however. No longer playing any hard rock, the LTs are best suited for me now.

    The oldest one I own is an '88 Custom 24. The pickup pocket says "NAMM" so I'm guessing it was a NAMM model which is extra cool. I could tell it was special even before that because there's no filler around the birds, real clean cuts.

    Wow. I have always wanted an earlier PRS with birds, a dark Braz board and the Emerald green color. Super nice.

    Dude, the old CEs for sure

    The new ones don't hold a candle to them, as nice as they are

    The originals are excellent instruments and you seem to be able to scoop them up for insane prices

    Yep, this all day long. Grabbed an 88 CE in Fire Red with blank back T&B's in it. Just a killer guitar, even better since I took it to Righteous Guitars and they shimmed the neck and got the action lowered.
