Please help me! let me start by saying ive always been a Gibson guy. I own several LP's and SG's. Ive recently been in the market for a PRS. Anyways, i have an opportunity to buy one. The problem is because of the location, it will have to be sight/unseen and before this thursday (2 days). The person that has it knows basicly nothing about it, and being a gibson guy, neither do I. If you guys could help me put a model, and value to it, that would help me immensly. thank you in advance for any and all responses.
i cant seem to figure out how to post a picture, ill explain details as much as i can.
double cutaway, bird inlays, 22 fret. one volume one tone knob, what appears to be a 3 position toggle. Paul Reed Smith on headstock. headstock is not a flame maple veneer. serial number puts it somewhere in 1992. pickup rings but no pickup covers. strings rollover what looks like a stop bar tailpeice.
my main concern is that i found a post on a serial number VERY close to this guitar (only one off) and the general consensus was that it was a chinese fake.
