Decoding the title..
PRS – Mr Paul Reed Smith, the CEO and designer of most PRS guitars.
SC58 – the model (see more info below)
Black Gold – that’s just the name PRS give to this colour.
Wrap – the colour wraps around from the front to the back so there’s no edge as such
Wide Fat – refers to the particular shape of the neck, wide and fat, now called ‘Pattern’
#11 177725 – that’s just the serial number so we know specifically which individual guitar this is.
Made in USA in 2011
There are two scrapes / dents along the top edge. Each about 10-12mm long. See last photo.
The nickel hardware is slightly tarnish but because it is a brushed nickel finish if we polish it then it will be a shiny nickel finish, so we have left it with this natural patina.
Other than that the guitar only has extremely very minor signs of use. Fretboard is mint, frets mint and in absolutely A1 great playability. Fully set up in house by the guitar guru that is Jon, and very nice it plays too.
Summary (Chris says..):
Wow, what a beauty!! Possibly the finest example of it’s type.
Costing nearly £4000 when new and comes with that awesome black gold paisley hard case.
Sadly my photographic skills can’t do this guitar justice, it’s a real stunner. Being 100% honest I personally think PRS are excellent value. Every single aspect of this guitar seems to have been precision engineered and well thought out right down to the screws that hold the back plate in. We love servicing these guitars too because they are such a joy to work on. Truly solidly built to last (My personal guitar is a PRS Custom 22 from 2005 and it still feels like new). Tone is rich, yet powerful with bags of sustain. Tuning stability is great and by great I mean way better than other mahogany bodied USA made guitars! The 3 way switch and push pull gives you instant access to a wealth of tone – from classic funky American single coil tones, to classic American fat seering humbucking tones. Every single member of Guitar Mania currently has at least one PRS guitar, some have several. Just about every member of staff that has ever worked at Guitar Mania has owned a PRS too – as soon as you play one you’ll want one, and there’s so many at so many diferent price points that we’re sure there’s one that will suit you.
Purchased from us and one careful owner since 2011
