It was more than likely made in late ’92 so it could make the lineup and ship in ’93. Thank you for your continued support of PRS Guitars.
But for the most part, a 10" radius works perfectly for our guitars and most guitarists in the market. John is a genius musician who is one of the fathers of our musical industry.
He has been telling me for nearly 30 years that one day my company would be good enough to make him a guitar .
anniversary, Smith gave fans and PRS owners an opportunity to ask him questions when he took over our Facebook account for about 90 minutes.
Thanks to all of your inquiries, we uncovered a few nuggets of the luthier’s personal and professional life that were previously kept under wraps. One door closes on a guitarist, the next opens for an award-winning guitar builder.
If I went to Washington Music Center and opened a case with a guitar I’d made, it would draw a crowd. My two current favorites that are would have to be the Private Stock Mc Carty and Paul Signature. Everybody has it wrong, including the companies that use 24 3/4" as their scale length.
But if I played guitar there, no one would show up, so I guess I made the right choice. We recently got a chance to record “Machine Gun” and I used a DC3 that sounded lovely, too. The reason I made it 25" is because when you hit a low E string hard using a set of .009s on a 24 9/16" scale length, the low E goes sharp and then comes back into pitch.I’ve always been surprised at how well it worked—especially when I saw other companies building 25" scale fret-slotting machines.Another problem with either the 24 3/4" or 25 1/2" scale-length instruments is that if somebody grew up on a short-scale guitar, they wouldn’t play a longer one and vice versa. And while he’s talking about measurements, Paul wants to clear the air on fretboard radiuses.Regards, kcbuck Hi thank you very much for your reply. not sure on model name but it maybe comparing to others a Custom 22?Ive just taken some better photos attached, theres no bolt on neck, glued or through maybe, there are a couple of things that dont quite ring true. The PRS signature at the top some of it looks missing 2. i have determined that the date may well be 1992 however approximate dates on some websites state that 15001 to 17001 is 1993 however the serial number is clearly marked 2 15799 3. very sorry for the vagueness not an expert on electrics by any stretch of the imagination The guitar is near mint condition, but came without a case.Thanks for your time, i look forward to your reply, regards Rich thanks for your time. cant see it on the guitar anywhere only the serial number.
