    Looks good cleaned up. Curious if it was an artist guitar with Los Lobos written in the pu cavity.

    Very Interesting!

    3-way toggle, I thought the CEs were 5 way rotary for the most part.

    Also, looks like it had the Kluson-style tuners on there originally. It may well have been a custom artist guitar!

    That is so frickin' cool! Nothing better than a well played and well loved vintage PRS!

    Love the logo, too! I wish mine had an old school signature logo.

    It’s hard to tell from the photos I’ve provided, but it has definitely had Phase 1 tuners on it at some point. There are old filled screw holes in all the right places, included the shared one between the D and G. I’m guessing that’s what it shipped with initially.

    The three way toggle had me a bit confused too. I just assumed it was added later, but after looking in the electronics cavity I am unsure. Maybe someone more knowledge on the topic than I would be able to tell if it’s factory or not?

    Yeah, I’m not too sure about that channel. The wire doesn’t even want to rest there. Can’t imagine why that was done.

    They must have played around with pickups. That's so cool!

    It looks to me like it's there for the pole piece screws to have more space. Like they wanted to sink the neck pickup even deeper.
