This guitar is a stunning beauty on stage.  The pearl white finish throws an angelic glow under the stage lights.  I gravitated to white guitars several years ago as my primary instruments.  Pearl white are so much the better.  My two primary reasons are first that it is simply impossible not to notice every move that a white guitar makes on stage even from 100 yards away.  Not only do they stand out but they always look great up close too.  Fingerprints or smears are virtually invisible on a white finish even under intense stage lighting.  The finish on this one is practically perfect.  Just two small marks on the back as photographed in picture # 14 next to the back plate and near the jack plate.  A tiny wear-through spot on the finish of the maple fret board at the third fret and above the 24th fret as seen in pictures as well.  That is it!  The back of the neck has a glossy perfect finish.  All things considered I give it a solid 9.8 cosmetic rating.  I gig an early CE exactly like this one as my number one performance piece.  It can be seen in several of the video’s on the associated “The Extremists” web site from the menu bar above.  You just can’t beat this guitar for sound, looks, playability and the feel of the maple fret board.

The frets show barely the start of any wear signs down in first position.  The pre-factory, white label pick-ups roar like a lion.  The label is missing off the Vintage Bass neck pick-up but you can clearly see the outline of the original sticker in the photograph.  Comes with the original tremolo bar and hard case.  The case is in excellent condition with only light random marks on it.

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.  Pre-Factory PRS guitars are getting more scarce and more valuable every day.  They are an investment and this one is in near perfect condition.  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 $200 more than I’m asking here at my home page, just to put a dent in the outrageous e-Bay seller fees they would charge me to sell it to you there.  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.  If you’ve come to this page directly through an organic Google search, click this link to see a list of all the guitars I currently have for sale before leaving this page.
