    Strange Serial Number

    I have a CE24 that I purchased from Guitar Center in Clearwater, FL in 2010. I just was looking at the serial numbers to date it and it doesn't match up with any. The serial is #275464. Here are some pictures. Does anyone have any info for me?

    Try your pics again - you need to have them on the web somewhere like photobucket.com. Your pics on Facebook are not displaying here for some reason.

    Based on this: http://www.prsguitars.com/csc/year.html, it sounds like you have a 1992, if I am understanding correctly. The "2" stands for either 1992 or 2002. And the "75464" falls within the range for 1992 CEs.

    BTW, your photo didn't show up. Care to try to re-post it?

    Looks like you have a sweet 1992 Blue Matteo CE, probably with Dragon 1 pickups.

    I don't think Blue Matteo was a color in 1992, that came much later. But I think they had a turquoise color, forgot what that was called, maybe turquoise. Heh.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    This is where Sergio chimes in and extols the virtues of an Alder bodied CE (and winged tuners), even the late Ed Roman thinks they're great!

    I really want to try one...
