1987 Vintage Yellow PRS Custom 24 Serial #7 22XX

 

1987 VY 5 Lead

One of the very earliest examples of the production “10″ top, which was first introduced on the March 1987 options list. The handwritten “10″ under the bridge pickup –- which would become a familiar feature of the best-topped PRS guitars moving forward – is predated by just one other guitar on this site (from late 1986) and is inscribed in the same hand.

All the classic features from PRS’s golden era are showcased here — a flawless regular neck carve with Brazilian fingerboard and highly figured abalone birds, a killer maple top with gorgeous mineral streaking across the grain, first iteration Stamped T&B pickups wired up in the original 1985 configuration with the classic “cocked wah” sound at position 9, and the prized star under the neck pickup inked by the legendary Mike Deely.
