Paul Reed Smith PRS / Rosewood Ltd / 1996 / Black / Guitar For Sale
1996 PRS Rosewood Limited. This extremely limited edition was just 100 pieces (this is #10). VERY few were made in trans-black. This guitar is from a nonsmoking 1-owner environment. As you can see it comes with the Certificate of Authenticity, Stickers, Unsigned Warranty Card and Brochures. YES, it also comes with the original form fit LEATHER case.
The specs are all stock. McCarty Bass & Treble pickups, Scraped Binding, Gold Hardware, East Indian Rosewood Neck, Multi-part Inlaid Fretboard. This piece weighs in perfectly at 8lb-6oz.
The wear is extremely light. There are 2 spots where the gold finish is slightly worn (on the bridge pickup under the low E string and on the bridge post near the low E string). There are extremely fine "feather" type surface marks (not into finish...just the kind you see in the light) on the top under the high E string...and a few on the back.
The only issue of note is one you wouldn't note unless I was given a note...follow? The original owner got a ding in the top...he is meticulous...it bothered him. A few years later, this PRS lover purchased a PRS Dragon from a PRS Employee...the deal was that the Dragon would be purchased if the PRS Employee could take the Rosewood LTD and get the ding out of the top. The deal was struck and a bit later, woosh...gone. I've been over this thing and I simply can not tell that anything was done...or what WAS done. Just there is no ding. I am telling you because I am in possession of knowledge and therefore feel it is my duty...but honestly, if you can find the repair you're better than I am.
