1990 Vintage Yellow PRS Studio Model Serial #0 88XX

 

Here’s a breathtaking one-of-a-kind Artist Relations ’90 Studio Model — the second guitar custom built for renowned British guitarist Geoff Whitehorn (Procol Harem, Roger Waters, etc). As you might expect, this Vintage Yellow tiger-striped beauty has spent her life as a professional working and touring guitar.

Recently acquired by a British collector, she was sent back to PRS for a factory tune-up and had several worn out appointments replaced. The tuners were updated to new Phase II units and the trem block/bridge was replaced (the old trem’s knife edges were heavily worn).

The #10 bridge pickup is powerful and well-defined. More P.A.F. oriented, it’s not as raw as a HFS of the same vintage. The single coils aren’t quite as powerful as modern Narrowfields, but they aren’t quite Strat-like either. Tone-wise they fall somewhere in-between the two.

Michael Reid (“M. Reid” as inked in the bridge cavity) is a lumber supplier who provided Paul with many of his choice maple tops. This one is clearly no exception — wickedly striped, 3-D play in the top, pretty much everything a PRS lover could wish for… and all in a Studio Model.
