PRS Custom 24 Sweet Switch - Vintage Cherry Sunburst (1990 Pre-Owned)

  • Description

Pre-Owned 1990 PRS Custom 24 Sweet Switch with 10 Top, Bird Inlays, Gold hardware, and signed by Paul Reed Smith. This is certainly one of the best examples from this period we have seen.

The '85-'95 period prior the factory move to Stevensville, Maryland facility remains the 'Golden Years' for PRS. Though the quality and prestige is still there in their recent guitars this earlier period firmly holds a special mystique and desirability amongst players and collectors. Something is just right about the combination of features, feel and sound of these coveted 'Sweet Switch' instruments which is reflected in their ever increasing demand and pricing.

This 1990 example we believe was built for display at the '91 NAMM trade show. It has an impressive 10 Grade flamed maple top, Brazilian board, Bird inlays and gold hardware. It has also been signed on the control plate by Paul Reed Smith.

It is in excellent original condition with little signs of use. The gold plating is intact with no oxidisation or wear. The fretting is perfect. Playability and tone awesome. I sincerely doubt you will find a more striking and cleaner example.
