This stunner was a present from the owner’s parents, purchased from Fred’s Music store in Shillington PA in the glorious summer of 1985. The owner clearly remembers his father asking the store manager what the best guitar they carried was, and found himself promptly pointed to this very same PRS hanging on the wall. It had actually been custom-ordered with the Cherry Sunburst finish by another patron, who then decided at the last minute he didn’t want it. Talk about lucky breaks… if the guy hadn’t passed on it, finding another PRS that day would have been impossible.

Everything on this ’85 is bone stock — Stamped T&B’s, Brazilian board, sweet switch, and a killer regular neck profile. Over the years, great care has been taken to ensure it remained as minty as it was when first purchased off the showroom wall. Serial #5 01XX
