I haven’t had one of these since 2007! Based loosely on a Custom 24 but a much different guitar indeed. Johnny has been one of the greatest unknown guitarists of our time – at least until this model came out. Made for just 2-3 years until Johnny and PRS had a falling out, so pretty rare. Many players prefer PRS’ bolt-on models, primarily those who have historically been Fender players who are used to the feel and response of a bolt-on. Johnny is noted as a virtuoso in any style of music – from metal to bluegrass – blues to rock and roll – and this guitar was built to do it all. A few unique features on this one including new signature pickups (Johnny Hiland Treble and Bass), 24-fret maple cap neck (one of the few maples from PRS) with a special JH neck carve, JH large dot inlays with a 513 inlay at the 12th fret, and 3-way pickup selector with push/pull tone pot to split the bass pickup. This one also features a very nice flamed maple top. Another cool feature is the recessed truss rod cover, which Johnny uses to do string bends behind the nut. Press it down to the wood and you’ll get a perfect whole tone step up every time. Other features include custom “Johnny Hiland” truss rod cover, nickel pickup covers & hardware, PRS tremolo and Phase II locking tuners. The finish is called Tortoise Shell, and it complements the flamed maple very well. Cosmetically, it’s in very nice shape with just some clear coat scratches, on back, most or all we’ll buff out prior to shipping, and slight dullness of the nickel covers, and they’ll probably come clean when we get it on the bench. Set up is spectacular all the way up the neck. This model listed for $3320, 10 years ago so a nice buy at $1550 for this beauty. Includes PRS case and trem arm.
