    Only because Mrs. Les got kicked out of the studio for eating an apple in there.

    I’m pretty sure that Frampton might have something;)

    That's cool - a few guitars I own or used to own (three I think) were on the old Vintage PRS site too. Shame it closed down - I really liked that site.

    Other than the back of the headstock the old pics are not showing on the web archive copy of the site. Fom memory I think 499 has completely faded on the top? If it's that one I liked how it had faded - almost to Vintage Yellow if I am thinking of the same guitar.

    Hard to read the Sig number on this one but it looks like it's either 521 or 527 - I suspect probably 527 due to the spacing - the hanger obscures the last number so it's hard to tell.

    For sale in Italy at the moment here - also on Reverb.

    Poss worth sending them an email to ask what Sig number it is if the price doesn't put you off.

    If you click in to the last two pictures they look like this. The whole guitar looks super.
