She was born on March 4th, 2005 and has been very well cared for. The guitar is in excellent- condition with only a few tiny light surface impressions and some scratches on the back and sides. None of these flaws are visible without reflective light. Also, the “A” bridge screw-head has come off, so the screw remains in the hole beneath the bridge. The bridge is secure and stable despite this, but it is certainly worth mentioning.   Also included is the original PRS Private Stock suede case, and although the certificate is gone, this does include the other case candy and adjustment tools, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be STOKED!!
