    This CE purchase got me thinking that I may have just started on a journey to hunt down great faded PRSi

    I'll get you started. What? You asked for a picture of a great faded PRS? This is my only faded one, 1997 CE with a 3-piece FMT that was once Royal Blue. I am intrigued by this one. Between the fade and the oddness of the top, I cannot figure out if she's gorgeous or scary looking, but I do enjoy her. Also my only 'hog CE, and my only one with a "regular" neck carve, which I think fits her well:

    I just noticed that this one has a SMALL heel and discovered that PRS made bigger heels in 1995 and forward.

    What's the significance with the small heel, tonally, structurally and value wise?

I am generally averse to 5-way rotary dial, but really have grown to accept it and love the variance with the tones. And, I love these HFS and Vintage Bass pickups. Enjoy the pics!










    Great looking axe!!! Love CE's...maple necked guitars in general....that is a fantastic fade!
