Hi all,

I was hoping somebody may be able to confirm the model of PRS I have just bought from Ebay - I am preety sure it is a standard Singlecut Soapbar (2007) but was hoping for a second opnion as I was not sure if there was anywhere you can check the serial number on the website?

The link is: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/251151426589?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Many thanks :-)

Sorry - ther reason for the confusion was that the knobs were black and I see most models have golden / orange ones.

Picking it up on Saturday - cant wait :-)

It is a Standard alright, but it isn't a soapbar. Has Zebra Buckers. The birds are a nice bonus, a lot of standards don't have them. Congrats!

Thanks Slowro!

I dont supposed either of you guys know what size a screw the machine head will need for this guitar? As per the advert it states is missing one. I have seen a place selling them on ebay but have various options:
M5X50
M5X40
M5X25
M4X40
M4X25

I know I should be patient and wait until I pick it up but would be nice to be ready :-)

Thanks

The pickups are most likely #6's. They don't make those any more but were my favorite rock pickup until the 57/08's, then 59/09's. The #6's are high gain, 2nd only to the Mark Tremonti high Gain pickups (at the time). They still sound good clean. The all mahogany should give it a great mid-range tone and satin finish allows the wood to breath. This is a great straight up rock guitar, you definitely don't see many of them.
