I'm talking to the seller of a PRS SC245 model and I'd like some info from you guys in relation to how to proceed:
1. What's the current price of a PRS SC245 25th anniversary smoked black slate?
2. Is this model a limited edition, hence worth more than a regular SC245?
3. Although it's an instrument from 2010, there seems to be quite some damage to the pickup covers and bridge due to acid sweat from the previous owner. How could I proceed with restoring these parts? Would I need to buy new ones? Does PRS sell these parts? As far as I know, the 57/08 pickups are not for sale, hence I would imagine the pickup cover wouldn't either.
4. Do you consider this to be a good purchase for around $3000?
Here are some pictures of the instrument and the first picture clearly shows the damage to the bridge and pickup covers: http://pho.to/6fhA9
Thanks for any input you might provide!!
