2003 Paul Reed Smith Archtop Guitar
Up for auction is one of the last archtops made by PRS. They were discontinued in 2003, and this one has a build date of 8/03. I bought it brand new 1/04. I have owned 4 PRS guitars, including a Hollowbody I, and in my opinion, this model is the best PRS has built outside of their Private Stock line. I am selling it to fund a custom build I had commissioned. I have put off selling this, as I am quite sure I will regret it, but I can't afford both. This guitar easily switches between rock, blues, jazz, and with the piezo option, gives you a very authentic amplified acoustic sound. This guitar is the most versatile instrument I have ever owned.
It is in great condition, as I have not played it very much. There are a few very light pick scratches that are very hard to see. It does have a small, odd discoloration in the poly at the 13th fret. It is not a bubble, and I took it to a highly regarded repairman who said that it was stable and was a nonissue. You can't feel it, only see it. I tried to capture it in one of the photos. There is also a small nick at the point of the headstock. Other than those two, there are no other dents, nicks or dings.
It comes with the original leather presentation case, which is in very good condition, but has a couple of nicks, and some of the stiching in the handle has come off.
