Santana Yellow, Serial # 09 155416.
Tiger Red, We had 25 of these made in 2007 (15 in Tiger Eye and 10 in Tiger Red) for the 25th Anniversary of our shop. We used Artist Grade maple for the tops and Brazilian Rosewood for the fingerboard and headstock overlay.
Tiger Eye, We had 25 of these made in 2007 (15 in Tiger Eye and 10 in Red Tiger) for our 25th Anniversary. We used Artist Grade Maple for the tops and Brazilian Rosewood for the fingerboard and headstock overlay.
Vintage Yellow, Artist Proto A1 written on back of headstock, This one came from the PRS archives also. They were supposed to take over from the signature series with the Artist Grade tops and paua birds and logo.
Purple, Artist Series III Proto #3 written on back of headstock, A great quilt top and tons of colorful abalone inlay make this a stunning guitar! Another one from the PRS archives.
Sunburst, Artist Series IV Proto #1 written on the back of the headstock. Gold engraved birds and the gold hardware really make this a stunning guitar. This one came from the PRS archives.
Sunburst, PRS 1996 Prototype #1 written on back of headstock. What can I say about this guitar? It is just breath taking! Another one from the PRS archives.
Scarlet Red with birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch. Not my favorite PRS color, but this one reminds me of the one Bugs Henderson plays.
Tortoiseshell, With a Blister Maple 10 top, birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch. You don't see many blister tops on PRS guitars!
Tobacco Sunburst, A nice grainy Brazilian board on this one!
Black Sunburst, 10 top, Birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch, A few years back I had my good friend Jim Barth (anything I'm ever looking for, he can find for me) scour the country searching for these early PRS guitars and we bought a ton of them!
Tobacco Sunburst, Moons, Brazilian board and sweet switch. An amazingly clean early PRS!
Vintage Sunburst, birds, Brazilian board and the sweet switch. This one has a "B" stamp on the back of the headstock. I think that means that there was some sort of cosmetic flaw (I guess as close to a second that it gets with PRS) and these were usually sold to artists.
Vintage Sunburst with 10 top, birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch.
Vintage Sunburst, Moons, Brazilian board and sweet switch, Just another nice early PRS!
Vintage Sunburst, A very clean example!
Vintage Sunburst, Moons, Brazilian board and a KILLER 10 top! This one is also exceptionally clean!
Vintage Sunburst, A very interesting 10 top on this one! Plus gold hardware, birds and the Brazilian board!
Vintage Yellow, Faded to almost natural! PRS had a problem with color fades the first few years. Birds, Brazilian board and the sweet switch. I didn't realize I owned so many of these! I guess I really went crazy (no surprise there) a few years back, buying up all the pre '91 PRS guitars I could find!
Vintage Yellow, Faded to almost natural! Birds, Brazilian board and the sweet switch. A very clean early PRS!
Vintage Yellow, Birds, Brazilian board and the sweet switch, Just a perfect combination! A very wild top on this one!
Vintage Yellow, 10 Quilt top, Birds and Brazilian board. The previous owner installed different pickups and a 3 way switch, but this guitar rocks just the way it is. I really dig this one!
Vintage Yellow with bird inlays on a Brazilian board and a sweet switch. To me, this is the perfect combination for the early PRS guitars!
Vintage Yellow, 10 top, Birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch. Extremely clean! To me, this is the ultimate 80's PRS!
Vintage Yellow, 10 top, bird inlays, Brazilian board and sweet switch. A very exotic top on this one and virtually unplayed.
Vintage Sunburst, 10 Quilt top, Birds, Gold hardware, Brazilian board and sweet switch, They had offered these in the early 90's with the stop tailpiece/tuneomatic bridge combination that I am very fond of!
Cherry Sunburst, Bird inlays, Another one of the stop tailpiece/tuneomatic guitars! I love this set up on a PRS!
Sunburst, Number 6 of 300 made. This one is chambered with a Redwood top, Gold hardware and a tuneomatic/stop tailpiece combination that I LOVE on a PRS! I wish they'd do more like this! The fingerboard is very light on this one, so they must have been experimenting with some different woods for their fingerboards. I bought this one directly from Paul a few years back. It was in his archive guitar stash and appears unplayed.
Cherry Sunburst, Inlaid eagle on headstock, Birds and gold hardware, Written on the back of the headstock is "The last sig series, The end of an era" and then signed by Paul Reed Smith. I love the strong cherry color and the reverse chevron top on this one!
Santana Yellow, "Pre Production Proto #1" written on back of headstock. I purchased this one from Paul's archive guitars and it appears to be unplayed!
Black Sunburst, Abalone logo and birds, Gold hardware, Prototype #10 written on back of headstock. I bought this one from Paul from his archive guitars. It appears to be unplayed!
Faded Blue Jean, I have very strong feelings for this one as it was a gift from Paul Reed Smith! He is such a wonderful man and I had heard stories that he would give someone the shirt off his back, but I was stunned (and brought to tears) when he literally gave me his personal guitar, right off his back! He told me he didn't want to see this hanging up somewhere as he really wanted me to play it. I don't gig as much as I used to, but I'll have this one with me when I do!
Pearl White, Brazilian board, I'm not a big fan of solid color PRS guitars, but this is a nice early example of Paul's work.
Cherry, Set neck, No serial number, I bought this one from Paul out of his archive guitars. This version never made it to production!
Tobacco Sunburst, Maple neck, Alder body, An early one with an interesting logo!
Royal Blue, 10 top, Birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch. The color and flame are so deep on this one, you feel like you could swin in this top!
Faded Royal Blue, Birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch, PRS was having some problems with colors fading in the first few years, but that made things kind of interesting!
Cherry Sunburst, 10 Quilt top and bird inlays, Paul had signed the back plate on this one.
Gray/Black, Moons and sweet switch, '92 is a bit late to have a sweet switch which makes this kind of fun!
Gray/Black, 10 top, Birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch. An extremely clean guitar!
Gray/Black, Birds, Brazilian board and sweet switch.
Vintage Sunburst, Moons, Brazilian board and sweet switch. Extremely clean!
