I could not wait to go out and buy a UNIVOX Les Paul for 1/5th the price of the real thing!
Damn, it was so inexpensive that I could almost afford to smash it on stage! But as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.
It seemed everyone was too busy and Toshiko didn’t even reply to your message.
the newer one that is a 2 piece bolted together unit. This affects the playability of the guitar adversely and also reduces the value of the guitar greatly. This cost cutting move was especially dastardly, because it's impossible to visually tell the difference: The wood is painted opaque on most of the models.
I am not sure of this but I do remember getting 1992 guitars delivered in 1993 etc. 1991 -- PRS stopped offering Brazilian rosewood fingerboards.
Opinions vary here but I feel that the Indian Rosewood they use is still OK and shouldn't be a reason not to buy a guitar made after 1991.
Presumably 1999 will be the same formula; I don't know what they'll do in the year 2000.
Were all gonna die then anyway so I guess it doesn't matter. I have heard that in 1999 PRS is building over 100 guitars a day. I remember when they were barely building 4 guitars a month The Classic Electric or CE model has one extra number inserted after the year designator and before the number of the guitar 3 917542 = 17,542nd guitar off the line, it would have been made in 1993.
