2018 Paul Reed Smith PRS 509 with Custom Color ~ Candy Apple Red

You are looking at a 2018 PRS 509 with a custom ordered Candy Apple Red metallic gloss finish, rosewood fretboard, abalone birds with outlines and the versatile 509 electronics! For those of you who are familiar with the 513 and the 408 models, the 509 combines the concepts of those 2 models into this very cool 509 package… combining the pickup configuration of the 513 with the dual mini-switches (coil-tapping) of the 408, the 509 gives you the best of both worlds. She’s all original and we just put on a fresh new set of 10-46’s, so she’s all dressed up and ready to rock!

She was born on January 29th, 2018 and was very well cared for, until an unfortunate incident happened… The original owner had several guitars (including this one) hanging on a wall in his music studio, and one night the rack decided to fall off the wall. This resulted in the flaws you presently see on the guitar. There is a ding on the edge (by the lower strap peg), and another pair of obvious dings on the back of the neck. Neither of these flaws affect the playability of the guitar.. but they are an eye-sore to look at. Aside from these flaws, there are a few tiny light marks that are only visible with closer examination. Also included is the original PRS case, the case candy, adjustment tools, tremolo bar and spec card, just as shown in the last picture! Whoever brings this baby home is gonna be STOKED!!
