This PRS Limited Edition 53/10 electric guitar come in a Fire Red Burst Nitro finish. Paul Reed Smith designed this run of 100 guitars to showcase the new 53/10 pickups which are also 'scorched' for this run, which gives the covers a blue/purple hue.
It should be noted that the very use of a Nitrocellulose Satin finish is in itself something very different for a coreline PRS which rarely comes up in a run. The majority of PRS guitars are finished in PRS' proprietary V12 finish with Nitro being reserved for Private Stock run guitars. The Nitro finish allows the body to 'breathe' and gives a truly impressive tone.
As guitarists will know, each one is different, and this particular guitar is especially resonant in the body, with gentle vibrations being apparent when it is being played, and is surprisingly lighter in weight than one expects.
This guitar is in excellent condition having come from a very good customer who looks after his guitars very well, but there are some very minor signs of play on the back of the body and some instances of surface scratching on top, although this is very hard to see. The nitrocellulose satin finish on the back of the neck has also worn to a gloss finish from the guitar being played, as well as some instances of oxidisation on the side dots of the fingerboard which have left a green hue on the dots in places.
It also includes the original Paisley PRS hardcase and hang tags.
