PRS bolt-on guitars coming out of the factory today are numbering in the 40,000 range.  This pre-factory guitar from my personal collection with a serial number barely 5000, putting it in the top 12% of all CE’s ever made.  The Tobacco Burst finish was a perfect choice to accent the rare maple fret board on this fine instrument as this guitar was born in the old factory.

This guitar is in 9.9 collectors condition.  As photographed below, there is one tiny chip in the back-side edge clear coat and a small scuff on the back near the plate.  Here are some things to think about as you look through the pictures.  Be sure to see the description at the bottom of the listing page as well.

These early maple fret board guitars are very rare.  I own three of them, two of which I gig regularly.  You can see them occasionally in some of the gig videos on the affiliated Extremist web page.  The maple necks have a fabulous feel and a truly unique look for a PRS guitar because they are so rare.  The Hiland models are cool, but new.  The Swamp Ash neck carve feels like a square fence post to me.  These alder body CE’s are rare and will appreciate in value no matter how hard you play them.  The vintage white label HFS / VB pick-ups are a great match for the alder / maple tone woods of this instrument.  The frets are like new with just the start of a shine blow the strings in open position.  The case is in excellent condition.  Comes with the original trem bar and truss wrench.

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.  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 $225 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.
