I've had this guitar for quite a while but I've never managed to quite get some good information about it. I've been doing some research online and i've only come to a possible conclusion that It might be a 10-top from 1990, which is Pre-Factory if I'm not mistaken. So now I'm coming here in hope that some of you may know more about PRS guitars than me. I'd be very grateful
I'm also very curious about the 2-way "bright switch", as I like to call it, which has replaced the tone knob. I tried looking it up on the web and found some people talking about it being a modification Santana came up with or something, and I've seen pictures of other 1990 models with the same switch. When It's "engaged" it is very bright sounding and has lots of definition and turing it off makes it very mellow sounding, kind of as if you have the tone knob at 5.
As for the color It is kind of dark blue, depending on the lighting, and very transparent, It must be a very thin layer of paint.
I have some pictures of it for you to look at. Everything on the guitar is stock as far as I know.
What I'm interested in knowing is;
- Name of the color
- That 2-way "bright" switch
- Is it pre-factory/1990 model
- Is it a 10-top
- Anything else worth knowing about it
