    Hi,

    I have a 1995 PRS Custom 24 that I bought in 1995. I know that time period is when they switched factory locations. How do I know which factory mine came from?

    Stevensville.

    Even if it started in Annapolis and was finished there, the features alone wouldn’t be classified as from Annapolis by collectors.*

    *If that’d even matter. It may someday, but not really right now for most people.

    Anyway, it would be nice to know...personally, where my guitar was made. I have always wondered.

    If you took possession of the guitar in 1995, it would surprise me if it wasn’t completed at the Virginia Avenue factory in Annapolis. Move to Stevensville was completed Jan 1996.

    If you still have the original paperwork there should be an address I think.
    My 92 had an envelope with the Annapolis MD address on it.
