    Custom 24 no birds?

    Hey everyone, I'm looking at a 2004 custom 24 with moon inlays. Does anyone know why it doesn't have birds? Was it an option to opt out for moons? Thanks so much and I'll post pics later of the family of the deal goes through.

    It's actually the other way around. On the Cu24, birds were the option but most of the retailers just had the option put on most of the time. Now the birds are the standard. Here is the list from a 2007 price list - I don't have a 2004.

    Custom 22 or 24

    Carved figured maple top with mahogany back, 25" scale length
    mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, moon inlays, volume & tone
    Neck carve 22 fret - wide fat control, 5-way rotary pickup selector, PRS 14:1 low mass locking tuners,
    Neck carve 24 fret - wide thin hardshell case
    Electronics 22 fret - Dragon II treble & bass pickups with covers
    Electronics 24 fret - HFS treble & Vintage bass pickups Hardware 22 fret - PRS stoptail or PRS tremolo
    Hardware 24 fret - PRS tremolo

    Options
    Gold hardware $440
    10 top flame $650,
    10 top quilt $850
    Bird inlays $360

    Prices are MSRP, not actual.

    Awesome, thank you so much for the info. I have a McCarty so this will go nice with the collection.

    I like the moon inlays a lot. So classic.

    I picked it up today, as expected it's a tone machine. It's in mint condition and I also like the look of the moons. Big difference between this and my McCarty as far as feel goes.
