Welcome, you are looking at a great piece. This is the PRS USA West St Limited Electric Guitar. 25" scale length. 1.69" nut width. .91" depth at 5th fret. 8 lbs 14oz.
The PRS West St Ltd is a tribute to the early, pre-1985, Paul Reed Smith builds. Paul took extra care to recreate the nuances of his early guitars, from the Dragon body inlay, to the milled brass bridge, to theBrazilian Rosewood boards. This is just a fantastic outing.
The iconic double-cutaway PRS body is cut from select mahogany for deep and resonant tone, and capped with a 'Artist grade' piece of figured mahogany(sapele). This not only adds a gorgeous aesthetic, but it also adds a bith more depth and complex mids to the natural tone of this instrument.
This PRS has a very resonant natural sound with a nice touch of high ends mids .
It's finished in an elegant Trans Cherry finish that really accentuates the figured sapele top.
The fantastic natural tone here is captured by a pair of custom wound 80 West humbuckers.
The bridge pickup has some nice cutting mids with, combined with the body's natural tone, results in a full, yet balanced, overdrive tone. Chords are absolutely huge, yet retain articulation and lead lines absolutely sing.
The neck pickup has the syrupy sustain you expect, but with excellent note vlaues.
A true tone machine.
The mahogany neck has a very confortable, oval profile, feel, which is what PRS is famous for. The 24-fret Brazilian board is adorned with Birds inlay- a staple of the high end PRS guitars.
This is a visual stunner- Trans Cherry finish showing off the figured top, Braz Rosewood fingeboard, Dragon body inlay, milled brass bridge, locking PRS machines, Birds, and chrome hardware- a true work of art.
This 80 West St Ltd is in exceptional condition- owned as a collector piece- very little wear whatsoever.
This auction includes the original hardshell case, bar, and build card.
This is your chance to get your hands on a fantastic outing from PRS, an instrument dear to Paul's heart- the 80 West- made for one year only.
