She was actually born on June 30th, 2005, but with the strict guidelines on Brazilian Rosewood, PRS was not permitted to release the guitar. Subsequently, this remained untouched at PRS until 2012, when they were finally permitted to ship. That being said, there are 2 birds cards; The older style spec card which shows a build date of 6/30/05 and also shows the pickups as the PRS RP model… then the newer style spec card which shows the completion date as 11/16/12, and it also reveals that PRS updated the pickups to the awesome 57/08’s. As for the condition, this one is very clean, with only a scuffed area on the back edge. The guitar is otherwise flawless. The neck is straight with no cracks or repairs… The frets are excellent with their entire life ahead of them… and she sounds like a great PRS should! Also included is the original PRS Modern Eagle SUEDE hard shell case, which is worth $500 by itself, and includes the case candy, adjustment tools, and the two bird card certificates, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is going to be completely stoked!
