    Greetings and question

    Hi all, I am a new forero and first apologize for my bad English, and well I wanted to ask a question on a PRS Custom22 top10 I acquired second hand, had no documentation and ask PRS as it was false, they said that believed not, and wanted to restore good as this shabby, here I leave a link to the pictures to see what you can tell me if it would be very expensive restoration

    Hey buddy! Welcome.

    Yeah, it might cost a couple of bucks depending on how far you want to take it, cool guitars are worth it though.

    It looks to me like:

    a) It's been well used and you should continue to use it well as it is.

    b) It will require probably a full refinish job plus maybe minor body work. I have no idea how much a competent guitar finish person/luthier would charge, but probably at least several hundred dollars.

    The CE22 I have has been used pretty hard but I don't care. I got it pretty cheap and have no intentions of fixing it. I might add that this guitar is quickly becoming my favorite as it plays very nice and sounds badass! I'll let people think I beat it into submission!!!! PLAY IT PARTNER!

    Thank you all, because I think I'll leave it as is, in my country (Spain) asking me what minimum is 500 , but not if the well would leave .....
    Another thing, you know if you can request a certificate of authenticity?
    Thanks again

    Those couple of nicks and dings are fine, as others have said! I would really clean and polish it up, burnish the frets, treat the fretboard, and call it good!

    But you have seen the back of the blade, the union of the neck with the body, the lower cutaway have as whitish, not if best seen in the photos as I can remove?, Not if your previous owner clean with something to leave it as is ...
