A highly desirable pre-factory Custom 24 with a beautifully flamed maple 10 Top.  The rare factory original zebra bobbin HFS / Vintage Bass pick-ups complement this black cherry finish very nicely.

Here are some things to think about as you look through the pictures.  Read more at the bottom of the listing page.

  • A highly collectable pre-factory guitar
  • Extremely rare white label zebra-bobbin HFS & Vintage Bass pick-ups
  • Small neck heel
  • Fabulous action and tone
  • One-piece Mil-Com bridge
  • 10 top with figured abalone bird inlays
  • 1991 was the last year of factory standard Brazilian Rosewood fret boards


This guitar has barely been played.  The closest thing to fret ware is a little “shine” under the strings at the first fret.  Virtually new as seen in the close-up.  The body has a couple of very minor dings as represented in the close-up photographs.  A tiny one at the bottom edge below the knobs.  One on the back bout near the strap button.  Some small areas with very minor surface marks on the back but nothing that even remotely qualifies as “buckle rash”.  An extremely well kept guitar for a 21 year old vintage classic.  I’ll give it a 9.6 cosmetic rating.

Try as I may, the pictures do not do this guitar justice.  Anyone that has ever taken a picture for the internet will tell you that Red guitars are simply impossible to capture in digital photography.  In direct view, the unique maple flame pattern looks a lot like a diagonally flamed one piece top but it’s not.  One or two of the pictures come close to catching the aspect of an “illusion” one-piece top.  This is a beautiful rock solid vintage collectable player in excellent condition.  Comes with original PRS hard case, the original tremolo bar.

Please be sure to take a moment and click here to look at my ABOUT page or access it from the top menu bar.  You can click HERE to access my e-Bay feedback profile ( e-Bay seller dm-2 ) directly as well.  I encourage even the smallest of questions so always feel free to e-mail me any time.  Over 140 of my e-Bay feedback ratings are from PRS guitar sales.  The sequential serial numbers of set neck guitars coming out of the factory have topped 200,000 .  The number on this guitar is under 12,000, putting it in the top 5% of all PRS guitars ever made. If you’ve come to this page directly through an organic Google search, you can see a list of all the PRS guitars I currently have for sale HERE.   PRS guitars are an investment.  You’ll ALWAYS have the option to re-sell it for as much or more than you paid.

This guitar is also listed on e-Bay with a starting price of $330 more than I’m asking here at my home page, due to outrageous e-Bay seller fees.  It is also on a rotating consignment schedule in two local music stores but I’m asking more there too, as they take a pretty healthy cut if they sell it.  Why pay more than you have to?  Check my feedback and buy it here.  It may be gone soon.  Send me an e-mail and we’ll talk.
