    Back to PRS !

    A few years ago I had to sell all my guitar collection due to an expensive divorce
    This included my Prs custom 22. Well now I'm back on my feet financially and I've bought a Prs
    It's a 2003 custom 24 in royal purple.
    Wasnt too sure about the colour at first but it's really grown on me. Sounds amazing and is in fantastic condition for its age.
    Bit of wear and tear on the tremelo unit ,bit of buckle rash. No chipped body work. Just a great guitar.
    The birds on the neck look different than the ones on my old prs,someone suggested they were artist ones.
    It's not a 10 top,but the imperfection's on the top add character!
    Here is some pictures to look at, once again great to be back playing PRS .

    The Coopers Hawk does look like Paua instead of regular abalone but abalone varies a lot. It might just be that you got some nice color in your abalone. The rest of the guitar features don't seam to be a special order. You can get the MODCAT from the pup cavity and check.

    Great guitar, congratulations and welcome.

    I agree - such a rich color purple - like a fine port wine!

    Really sweet guitar!
    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.

    Will be using the guitar on the debut album of the band I play for. Recorded the basic tracks with a line 6 variax guitar, mostly for the acoustic sounds. We will be re-amping the guitars so I needed a guitar with a clean but loud sound. The prs sounds fantastic so far. Only problem is I'm finding myself looking at other prs guitars to buy!

    That guitar is especially sweet with the zebra pickups, nice score!

    Sounds like you need a P22! Great acoustic sounds in addition to the Mag pickups!
    If I thought I was going to live this long I'd have taken better care of myself!
