    If you search for a "PRS McCarty 57/08" you can find some more info. I'd post a link but it's from a dealer and contains retail pricing which we can't tall about here.

    Great looking (and sounding) guitar by the way!

    It's a 2008 McCarty, limited run with 57/08 pickups.

    Here's a review on them...

    "The PRS Limited Edition 57/08 guitars are a unique run of special instruments - Consisting of 3 models -Custom 24 - Singlecut SC245 - McCarty - Only 750 57/08 Limited Edition guitars are to be made available worldwide - 350 x Custom 24 models - 250 x SC245 models - 150 x McCarty models - Each guitar is hand signed and numbered by Paul Reed Smith on the rear of the control cavity plate - Each guitar is equipped with only the finest tone woods coupled with the most exciting, talked about pickups since the PAF! - An attractive 'artist pack' graded quilted maple 10 top is a feature on each of the 57/08 Limited Edition guitars along with a lightweight South American mahogany body, a Peruvian mahogany neck, Dalbergia rosewood fretboard, Paua rim "J" bird inlays and the new PRS 57/08 pickups with original wire from the 50's - An engraved 57/08 truss rod cover completes the package.
    PRS obtained exclusive rights to the original pickup wire that was used in the most revered pickups from the '50s - Paul Reed Smith obtained the rights to the wire in 2008 and with 1957 being the year the humbucker was first commercially available, hence the name 57/08 - These are truly amazing, warm toneful pickups that are loaded with emotional qualities and tremendous articulation, that must be heard to be believed. They will cover the tonal spectrum of vintage and modern tones with authority!"

    I have #2 of the series...





    Wonderful guitars!

    Sorry to hear of how you acquired it, but that really is a special guitar.
