1985 PRS Custom 24 Metal #73
Less than 35 PRS Metals were ever made, and this happens to be the 73rd PRS guitar ever made!
SETUP & INSPECTED BY OUR LUTHIER
Case: Hardshell Case
Cosmetic Condition: Very good. Guitar has definitely been played and has plenty of dings and scratching throughout. The sides of the guitar where the top and back meet is the most affected area with plenty of areas of chips in the finish. The headstock also has some scratching and chipping. General corrosion on the hardware from years of use. There is some finish cracking on the neck up towards the 12th fret. Guitar was signed to "Brian" on the back of the headstock by Paul Reed Smith himself.
This guitar contains a "Sweet Switch" - please find more info on Sweet Switches from this great post on the PRS Forums: https://forums.prsguitars.com/threads/how-a-sweet-switch-really-works.839/
Tech Notes: When we received this guitar, someone had modified the sweet switch and turned it into a tone switch w/ capacitor - we installed a new old stock Sweet Switch to get the guitar back to it's original specs and completed a rewiring/cleanup. Schaller strap buttons were installed. Four out of the six tuners are the original Schallers, but two are PRS brand replacements. Light to moderate fret wear but still very playable. 10-46 strings.

Awesome transaction! I bought a pretty special guitar (previously owned by a famous guitarist), and Ish nailed it. Ethical dealer, quick ship, and fast responses. I look forward to doing business with them again in the future!Devin, L'arrivee D-60
