    $60K, $100K, they’re both pre-serial number PRS guitars. History, provenance, worth whatever one is willing to pay.

    There’s a McTrem/DGT proto, and an ‘85 sea foam available that I’d like to buy. Neither near these prices, but if the history and provenance means something to you...

    Is this some magical instrument that will make you play better and sound like the gods themselves? No.

    Is it a unique piece of history for an influential brand. Oh h*ck yes.

    Imagine having an instrument, and the proof of it, that Leo himself made for a friend who was doing a favor to help get Fender off the ground.

    Or like having a print vs. the actual painting.

    It’s not just a Paul Reed Smith guitar, it’s a Paul Reed Smith guitar!

    Imagine what it would cost you to get Paul to make you a guitar, today, by hand. None of the CNC, fretboard sanding machines, etc.

    Me too - If I won a large lottery jackpot I would be clicking "add to cart" on both of these guitars faster than a blink of an eye.

    Considering it's been up on reverb for SIX YEARS I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon...

    Now there’s a thought! :D

    Honestly there are perhaps one or two in my care that I would not sell for 100k or 500k. My life would be poorer for it.
