1986 Vintage Yellow Custom 24 Paul reed Smith Guitar

Stunning early ’86 Custom 24 in iconic Vintage Yellow. Under the hood the electronics are all ’85 — including date-correct volume pot and a copper-topped sweet-switch. The guitar is named Duval in honor of the owner’s father. She’s 100% original, killer top, colorful birds and the trademark PRS dark, rich Brazilian board.

Overall the condition is great with some honest play-wear — it alternated with the near-legendary Pearl White Standard “Casper” for live gigs over a period of years.

“I think it’s tone really opened up after a few hundred hours of live action — it’s got a lot more warmth than other early Customs I’ve played (It was a bit shrill in the beginning). I stopped taking it out when I got Spooky — Casper’s twin — because I do have to adjust my amp’s EQ between a Standard and a Custom, and it can be a pain.”
