1986 PRS Baby Blue Standard Serial #6 10XX

 

An extremely rare 1986 Baby Blue Standard known as “Smurf” by owner Roberto “T-Bone” Céspedes. What makes her so special? Her Brazilian board has BIRDS instead of moons.

Birds are much harder to find on the early Standards/Pre-Standards. Standards were the less expensive models and Moons were essentially stock unless you upgraded to the Birds option for an extra $200. Today that $200 translates into perhaps a $1000 or more difference in price for vintage Standards and several thousand dollars difference for Customs. The iconic PRS Birds are always prized most highly by collectors.

Roberto reports that Smurf is an extremely fast player with an ultra-smooth chocolate Brazilian board. Best of all, this is a working guitar, played and recorded regularly, not buried in some collector’s closet somewhere. Twenty-five years later, Paul’s innovative new design for the working musician has never sounded better.
