So I've managed to snag myself a rather nice looking Cu24 recently that's been subject to a fair bit of use over the years. Although it needs a bit of work, I've managed to get it for a killer price so I'm really looking forward to getting it usable again - it's also a "birth-year" guitar for me so all the more reason to hang on to this one and look after it. Things to note: Bridge pickup has been replaced - neck is the original Standard B Tuners have been swapped for Grovers - I've got a set of era-correct Phase 1s to fit Electronics have been ripped out - luckily I already have a 5-way rotary from '93 to install Tone pot was installed, I'm assuming it would have shipped with a sweet switch though No backplates - have they changed at all since '87, or would new parts be a straight swap? Nut and frets are heavily worn and in need of replacement Original knobs and switch-tip are long gone Trem arm is missing - I assume these haven't changed? No case or case candy Now, sweet switches are either as rare as rocking horse sh*t, or are prohibitively expensive. I'm happy to install a tone pot instead if needs be unless someone can point me in the right direction - I've managed to find the correct part for the sweet switches toggle, but not the right chip to make my own yet. What's the consensus on the 1985 reissue pickups that came out a while back? They're available at good prices via PRS' EU store. I'm also toying with dropping a set of Dragon 1s into it as I've always been a fan of them, especially with the 5-way rotary switch. I'll also probably order a bridge upgrade kit via Mann-Made as this one's seen a lot of use. It might even need a complete replacement but I'm waiting for it to arrive before I can assess the knife-edge properly and go from there. If I was in the US I'd probably be sending this into the PTC, but as I'm not I'll do most of the work myself, and outsource the re-fret.
