2008 Paul Reed Smith Starla in great condition and in excellent working order, complete with the original hardshell case.   A straightforward and elegant model with a gloss Cherry finish on the carved mahogany body, the Starla has a complex and detailed range of tones worthy of the PRS name. The humbucking pickups are at once articulate, aggressive, and jangly, and with the push/pull coil tap on the tone control, the Starla offers snappy single coil glass. The instrument is lightweight at 7lbs 7oz and has been professionally setup with 10-46 strings, low action, and accurate intonation.

The neck has PRS' Wide Fat profile which measures .870" deep at the 1st fret, filling out to .980" at the 12th fret. The rosewood fretboard features abalone dot inlay, and the stock medium jumbo fretwire is flawless on the 24 1/2" scale. The nut measures 1 11/16" in width, and the headstock features Kluson-style tuning machines.

All of the electronics work as intended, with a three-way pickup selector toggle and Master Volume and Tone knobs. The hardware is extremely clean, with just a touch of patina on the nickel bridge base, and the Bigsby B5 vibrato has a smooth, even response. Unlike the S2 Starla models currently in production, the original Starla like the one seen here has more ornate top carve, for a stately yet elegant look. The neck profile exhibits no wear, and cosmetic wear on the body is limited to just a few light scuffs in the pick path and a faint finish scratch or two on the back in the clear coat of the Cherry gloss.

The original hardshell case is included.
