Here are a few pix I have collected over the years. They are not mine.

I think this is from the second Experience. Also, at least some of these are from the 70's.

86 in a lovely, hardly-faded-at-all VY. Factory original tone control, which makes the guitar usable from my perspective. (back when I owned an '89, which I bought new, I ditched the switch as fast as I could...)

This awesome '89 Special just got to me in a trade deal. I don't know much about these instruments, only what I've read on the PRS site and I wanted to ask if there was a HH version of this model or could this be some kind of custom order? (The PRS site says Specials had HSH pickup configurations, mine has a serial # of 9 7516.) However, the tone is incredible, especially for its light weight, it's an awesome guitar indeed.

It seems to have the trem up-route that mine from that era has as well. I believe the "specials" had a different pickup configuration.

Markie, don't even know where to begin on that collection. Simply outstanding! Early standards in opaque finishes are my favorite PRS. It's good to know that there are still a lot of great ones out there. :)

JD, love the pearl white. This may be a longshot, but was that the one Gruhn Guitars had for sale early last year? (If so, I had the pleasure of playing it. What a great one, I would have given a kidney for that thing!)

Here's my 1985 Vintage Yellow Custom:

Here's a 1985 "PRS Guitar" also known as a Pre-Standard. The color is Black Pearl or Pearl Black. I've heard both, and don't know which is correct.

Bringing up the rear of my 85s, is another PRS Guitar...this one in Gloss Black:

And lastly, here is a 1986 PRS Guitar/ Pre-Standard. KILLER guitar, but she' currently for sale for a steal on VR and my Reverb.com store.
