About This Listing

Made by Paul Reed Smith....not the company....THE guy...before there was a PRS factory.  This is THE PROTOTYPE of the Metal.  It is from 1984 and is the #1 prototype documented from factory (included).  It is in Excellent Condition with the Original Hard Case and Tool.  Pickups are hand wound by Paul. 

Extensive documentation and pictures of Ted Nugent with this guitar are included with the sale.

Paul took this piece as a sample to New Orleans and it was scooped up by Ted Nugent.  Ted "borrowed" this piece and played it in such iconic performances as his jam with Eddie Van Halen (pictures included) and Texas Jam.   

This is a collector quality piece that also sounds & plays amazing.  Vintage PRS Guitars are priced extremely well and are poised for long-term appreciation relative to their peers.  If you watch the major vintage player sites, clean examples of F and G have been moving at ever increasing prices.  Don't sleep on this.  It's not another sunburst's THE Metal that we all lusted after when we were younger and broke.
