Traded it for my ‘94 Custom22.
Congratulations. Looking forward to the thread where you show us all your hard work.
Keep an eye out, I never pay more than $100 for ‘em. The people that want $200-300 used for them are smokin’ waaaay better weed than me.
Glad to hear that, the only people selling them right now are smokin more weed than all of you. $400. I’ll definitely keep an eye out.
Thanks! I will definitely add more photos as things progress.
Straight six got it right. The really good ones will always be played. Go Sergio on the bridge when you disassemble and clean. I replaced all the screws and the trem springs, and everything cheap that was rusted when I got my beat to snot 03 CE 24. It was so bad my luthier laughed and shook his head. Now it takes names and kicks ass.
Once he had the guitar, he told me it was really beat up. He also told me that he didn’t think it was actually CE. My heart sank a little, but I convinced him to send me some photos so I could see for myself. Here’s what I got a few minutes later:
Great project, congrats!
Anyone in here have a recommendation for a polish to use on the body? Not trying to make it look new, just wanting to brighten up some of the dull areas.
Hell yeah, I’m hoping this one will be a Cinderella story as well.
There is a polish called guitar scratch remover that can only be bought at guitarscratchremover.com that is the best I’ve ever used. Head straight for it and check out the video. It does exactly what they say it will.
The video looked impressive. Might have to get me some as well.
Wow, looks pretty great. I appreciate the recommendation
Got the guitar today, and I am PUMPED!!!
Upon opening the case, I was pleasantly surprised to find the following unlisted items waiting in the storage pocket. Two very nice braided cables, A quality leather strap, two sets of elixers (my brand! wrong size though..), some string clipper, a string winder, three additional trem springs (I'll be needing these soon), and of course... a random pick or two.
The next surprise came when I examined the neck. It is in GREAT shape. No dents, scratches or dings and it's straight as an arrow. Can't tell you how happy I was to see this.
Next, the frets. These things were very, very, verrrrrry dirty... The worst I'd ever seen. But after cleaning I discovered only a few small indentations. They've definitely been leveled a time or two, and they're definitely gonna need to be replaced soon, but I'm gonna rock them as is for a little while.
Polishing the frets
Next, the bridge. As many of you eagle-eyed wizards noticed, it is indeed a mil-com. Score!!
Next, possibly the biggest and best surprise of all.... Thank you Guitar Center!!!
Here's a shot of the electronics.
And a few more shots of the guitar. Notice the back of the headstock, girl has seen some tuners in her day!
Next stop is a full setup, and a cleaning of the bridge. Also have Phase 1 tuners, a new nut, and proper PRS strap buttons on the way. Will keep this thread updated as the mods are done. Thanks for checking her out!
Random, I was just thinking about this guitar. Man, an even better score than expected! Congrats!
