Hello all! First I'll introduce myself, I'm Jeff from Utah and I have been admiring PRS guitars for a long time. I've probably bought around 30 guitars over the years trying to find the one. I recently got an SE Custom 24 just to try out PRS guitars and it was a very good guitar for the money and I really liked it. Since then, I had been on the lookout for a U.S. made Custom 24 that had the features I was interested in and the right color. I finally found the one I was looking for, I knew it the minute I saw it. The guitar was born in December 2011 and I bought it as new old stock. It has the pattern thin neck which is perfect for me and the 59/09 pickups which are exactly the ones I wanted. The color is blue crab blue. The guitar is fantastic and I'm now hooked on PRS. I'm not sure how it ended up in this particular case but I'm not complaining because its really nice.
