    Just got this and I love it, much more so than my old 408. It's a few year old custom 24, not a ten top but still looks great to my eye. It will probably be making a trip to PTC to repair the little bit of gloss lift on the side of the fretboard and for a general once over. Overall an incredible guitar.

    ya know what? i surprisingly never made one. i made one for the PRS i bought before this one. but never posted one for this guitar. i got it around march or so? truly a perfect guitar. i'd rather have this than most private stocks i've seen.

    I gotta say, the Jade finish is one of my favorites from PRS lately. Looks soooo good!


    Lovely 59/09 limited you got there. They put some amazing tops on that run.

    agreed. i fell in love instantly when i saw it for sale online. since then i've only seen 2 others from that run (i'm relatively new to the prs family). one was another faded blue jean that an owner sent back to the company to have a different sheen on it so it was more glossy. that was killer.

    and i came across this one (below) today in fact. never knew it came in black gold. this top is insane. and the asking price seems crazy (almost $6000). i dont know how much they cost new (i'd assume maybe $4500?) but i'd easily put mine up against most private stocks

    The price is because it's in Japan... PRS go for a lot more there.

    Half right. It's in Japan, where random dudes relist dealer stock at super high prices hoping to offer something rare to the international buyer. Here it is at ~$4k:

    I don't find anything pedantic with finding it 30% off -- the actual price you would pay in Japan -- but whatever.

    The price posted is high because someone in Japan is trying to flip it to make a profit. It happens all the time if you look at PRS listings in Japan.

    The price you posted is still ridiculously high for a used older PRS, even a nice limited run like these. IIRC the last time I was looking these were going well south of $3k just like the very similar 53/10 Experience guitars.

    However if you or anyone else wants to pay $4k + international shipping hey be my guest.

    Yeah seems like there are a couple guys really trying to push the pricing on ebay listings, I've seen quite a few listings from Japan in that price range lately.

    If that wasn't clear this is what I mean: people, who do not own the guitars in question, are listing dealer stock with exorbitantly high prices that do not in any way reflect the real price of the instrument. Most have $1-2k margin. The account of the original ebay link is a guy who is not in possession of that guitar, who will go to the shop and buy the guitar if you win the auction. I've had to block dozens of these accounts from my ebay searches lately.
