Welcome, you are looking at a great piece.
This is the 1991 PRS Artist Series #84 Custom 24 Electric Guitar.
25" scale. 1.69" nut width. 7 lbs 15 oz.
.77"-.92" 1st to 12th fret neck depth.
PRS has been making some of the finest instruments in the world since 1985.
This is part of the very first run of Artist Series- #84, making it an exceptional addition to any collection.
As a player, of course, this is top notch.
The mahogany body and neck bring low end mid resonance to the table.
The thick maple top adds in the high end mids for a beautifully balanced natural tone.
Dual PRS Vintage pickups grab the natural sound and add in their famous character.
Combined with the 5 way rotary pickup selector, there are a plethora of tonal options- everything from full bridge hum to full neck hum to sweet parallel beautiful cleans.
Add overdrive to this PRS and the pickups fatten up perfectly.
The bridge pickup has solid body and excellent cut.
The neck pickup is a mind blower- thick syrupy sustain with excellent note articulation.
A true tone machine.
The neck here has a thin, fast feel- .80" deep at the 5th fret with an elliptical C profile.
Add to that the 10" radius and you have a fantastic player- comfortable chording and effortless bends.
The icing on the cake is the PRS tremolo.
With its high mass design, this trem transfers more string energy into the body than most others.
The trem action is smooth, and, the locking tuners & straight string pull allow for exceptional tuning stability.
The look here is absolutely gorgeous- Cherry Sunburst finish showing off the incredible flame top, natural 'binding', bird abalone inlays, and chrome hardware.
This Artist is in good overall condition- there is a small chip on the lower body(pic) as well as pick scratches, and a few small marks- nothing that affects the tone or playability whatsoever.
The frets here are clean- just professionally set up with action of 3/32" at the 12th fret.
This auction includes the original hardshell case and trem bar.
This is your chance to get your hands on a first year Artist Series PRS.
Don't pass this by!
