1986 PRS Vintage Sunburst Custom 24 Serial #6 04XX

 


Privately stashed in the backwoods of Canada, Brent Moss of The Guitar Shop recently managed to coax this stellar 1986 Vintage Sunburst out of the owner’s hands and is now sharing a glimpse of her with PRS addicts everywhere.

She’s completely original, with a striking maple top and one of the most beautiful fades of any PRS sunburst you’ll ever see. Just look at how the squiggly motion of the mineral lines in the wood perfectly compliment both the flame top and the color fade. Incredible stuff — yet just another day at the shop for PRS Employees in ’86. Serial Number 6 04XX.

Mike Deeley — one of the earliest PRS employees — recently said that he put the legendary STARS (see pic below) in the neck cavities to indicate which guitars Paul had signed off on. It was the only way he could reliably keep track of which had been approved and were ready to finish and sell.
