1984 PRS Pre-Factory Metal Prototype #1 – Documented & Celeb Owned!

1984 PRS Pre-Factory Metal Prototype #1 – Documented & Celeb Owned!

See this on REVERB.Com:    https://reverb.grsm.io/33104934-paul-reed-smith-prs-metal-prototype-1-1984-pre-factory-ted-nugent-owned

 

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 F…..it’s THE Metal that we all lusted after when we were younger and broke.

Fender Nocaster 1951 – Collector Condition with Case & BROCHURE ! Just 6 lb-4oz

Fender Nocaster 1951 – Collector Condition with Case & BROCHURE ! Just 6 lb-4oz

1951 Fender Nocaster Telecaster in Excellent Collector Quality Condition.   Just 6lb-4oz.  Serial 1322.  Just a WOW piece to play.  The high notes are so fat and nothing like anything I’ve ever heard.  People who play this smile.  It is a once in a lifetime piece.  I simply feel it is best in the hands of someone who will play this and enjoy it more than I can.

2 Owner Piece that is virtually excuse free.  Light wear and light checking but no replaced parts.  Let’s get the questions out of the way:

  • ORIGINAL FINISH
  • ORIGINAL FRETS
  • ORIGINAL CASE
  • Original Wiring Scheme (with Mud Setting).
  • ORIGINAL PICKUPS (no rewinds)
  • ORIGINAL BROCHURE (not a copy)
  • Does not come with Fender Sign shown in picture
  • YES IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL STRAP
  • YES it has the ORIGINAL ASHTRAY COVER
  • ORIGINAL TUNERS (never swapped out)
  • ORIGINAL NUT
  • ORIGINAL POTS
  • ORIGINAL JACK
  • Original Guard
  • Strings are modern (LOL)

Only 2 things were ever done to this piece.  When I received the guitar the wire from one pickup had deteriorated at the connection point to the 3-way.  I had Phil Jacoby re-solder the wire to the connection.  It literally had just come off & nothing more.   Second, the neck pickup base had deteriorated over time at the point where it was screwed into the body.  I had Phil Jacoby make an unobtrusive support (detailed pictures available).  Literally some double sided take and plastic.  That’s all for ‘stories”.

Please no silly lopsided trade offers.

Please no ‘best price?” emails….if you wish to make an actionable & firm offer please do so and I will consider it.

GIBSON Les Paul Junior Sg Jr 1961 No Breaks!

1961 Gibson Les Paul Junior a.k.a. SG Jr.    A guitar you will cherish.  It stays in tune.  WOW fat thickness and the low chords don’t mush out.  No breaks.  Original Pickup.

Weighs just 5lb-15oz.  1-11/16″ Nut Width.   .83″ – .90 Neck Depth.

What’s the deal?….changed tuners and added stop with some finish work in that spot (shown in pictures).  Guard slightly warped.  Pickup cover has crack but holds fine.  Replaced (upgraded) case…no I do not know what happened to the original (would that really matter?…I mean would you buy it if I lied and said the case died valiantly defending this guitar from would-be assailants in a rough part of communist Poland?).

Danocaster TELE – Klein Pickups

Dano TELE  featuring an Alder Body and Rosewood Board.  .845″ – .97″ Neck Profile.  No Fretwear.  Klein PIckups.  Weighs Just 7lb-5oz.

Super guitar.  Resonant and has that bite we just LOVE in a tele…but cleans up ever-so-nicely.  Wear appears to be a combination of factory & user.  Always hard to parse out which is which.

See complete Specs & Condition in the 3rd pic.

Couple things to note (1) no tag because likely pre-dates tags.  (2) Case is a hard after-market with a big gash in it. (3) Three of the bridge screw heads snapped off….came with one snapped & 2 others just snapped off when I tried to remove the bridge to inspect.  I sent the guitar to Hogy (KOMET AMPS) who is one of the most respected restoration men alive.  He removed the stubs, repaired the holes and redrilled/reinstalled the bridge.  A-grade, no expense spared repair.

2013 Danocaster Double Cut STRAT!  OMG this is a full rich sounding one!  DO you want a fat sounding guitar?….tired of strats that sound like an acoustic with an EVH pickup in it?  THIS is your one!

1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior TV YELLOW – All Orig Except Tuners & Case

1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior TV YELLOW – All Orig Except Tuners & Case

1957 Gibson Les Paul Junior in TV Yellow finish. YES the finish is original and it blacklights.  Original FRETS.  Original Pickup.  Original Wiring.  Original Guard.  CHANGED TUNERS.   Upgraded CALTON hard form fit case.

Simple.  Not much else to understand.  Neck profile is a WOW .925″ – .975″.   Weight is just 7lb-5oz!   YES this is the ONE you have been waiting for.

Tonally this has that FATNESS and Crunch til you back off the volume (pot a touch scratchy and you won’t want to mess with it but if you do that’s on you).  This is from MY personal collection.  It sits amongst the very few top sounding guitars I’ve accumulated.  I just find that I don’t play many guitars anymore and it’s time for this one to reside with someone who will use it.

Color is strong.  Checking, dings and some scratches but a clean piece that is just under that grade where you won’t want to touch it.

SORRY NO SOUND SAMPLES

SORRY NO APPROVAL PERIODS

2005 GVCG Esquire / Tele : 6lb-13oz

Early GVCG Esquire from the days when Jonathan was creating these with Fender logos!  IT has the trademark “rooster” in the neck pocket clearly identifying this piece as a GVCG.

This was professionally converted to a Telecaster…but relaaaaaxxxxx….no holes were drilled……the original guard & caps are included!  So YOU WIN!  I prefer having 2 pickups but if you only want one then it’s all there for you.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION in the 3rd PICTURE.

LIGHT weight at just 6lb-13oz.  Have to LOVE the resonance of this piece.  The early GVCGs are the play.  I had the ‘reissue 1’ versions and they are fine guitars but not to the same level of WOW as the early versions.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION in the 3rd PICTURE.

This does NOT come with the ‘patch’ but it is a 2005 from what I can gather.

Lentz Jr (that is Scott Jr for those who don’t follow the lingo) LEGENDARY VENUES SERIES “Jimi” Stratocaster!   From a smoke free environment.  Just 6lb-11oz!

I’ve said this before and will repeat it….Lentz guitars are THE STANDARD for modern boutique instruments.  When you’re ready to step past cookie cutter…LENTZ is the name to trust.  You can turn over a LOT of rocks, kiss a LOT of frogs, like a LOT of INstagram pics…..order and spec out and ponder and question….at the end of the rainbow ….a LENTZ.  Take if from someone who has owned more boutique unique than most people.

The RESERVE series of Lentz Guitars represents the top shelf of this iconic builder’s offerings.  Featuring Cabinet Aged 1-Piece ALDER Body and UBER Flame Maple Neck.  C-Profile .88″ – 1.025″ with 1-11/16″ Width and 6105 Frets.   SUPER resonant piece here.  It just vibrates in your hand.

It is almost impossible to find trem strats in this weight range…now consider it was hand created AND features the finest woods and materials available.   There are several black “Reserve” Lentz Strats floating around but their weights are as much as a POUND higher…THIS is the one you want.

Knaggs PRE-PRODUCTION Choptank SERIAL #1

Pre-Production KNAGGS Serial #1 Choptank!  This is as collectible as it gets.  When Knaggs Guitars was getting off the ground they went to a few good PRS customers and offered their Serial #1 quietly.  The monies were used to fund the startup of the company.

NECK is 1-piece of African BLACKWOOD!  You simply can’t find a guitar with these specs today.  And think about what went into the build and care of each specimen.

THIS is probably the HOTTEST of the bunch.  MINT Collector Owned since day one.  Original purchase price in 2010 was $10k firm (no discounts) and it has been stored in a smoke free environment since.  This has not been around the block.  Think of what a PRS Serial #1 is worth.  You can get this for less than the price of a stamped out PRS Private Stock.    You can see the Specs in the Certificate of Authenticity.

Yes it comes with the hardshell case. No mods.  Conspiracy theorists look elsewhere.

LOVE CABLE : LTD CUSTOM – Brand New!  Only US Auth Dlr

LOVE CABLE : LTD CUSTOM – Brand New! Only US Auth Dlr

PrimeGuitars is PROUD to be the EXCLUSIVE NORTH AMERICAN Dealer for LOVE Cables LTD CUSTOM line!   These hand made guitar cables are created 1-at-a-time by a Master Sound Engineer with decades of experience at Lipinski Sound (their monitors are amongst the best in the world).   I am a cable JUNKIE……have and have tried everything up to the $1000 Analysis purple….I can tell you THESE are what I use.  Why?   They are transparent and musical without being boomy (some cables have TOO MUCH low end).  They are not thin and weak sounding.  VERY transparent yet musical.

Think about it, you spend tens of thousands on your gear…then you get some crap cable OR spend like $40 on a ‘great’ one.  Think of this…in an audio system or recording studio the cabling is expensive and for a reason.

Read the review below from an actual audio listener who purchased a pair of custom LOVE LTD Cables for his home audio system….(we can custom order you these too if you email us).  The buyer heard them at an audio conference and was so blown away he ditched his higher priced cables.

REVIEW OF THE LOVE LTD Audio Cables:
  • Cable is not a ‘fussy’ cable, and has good engineering, marketing
  • Overall excellent noise rejection (I have a system with a component that has poor EMI/ RFI tolerance and with a propensity for microphonic noise this product did not bring out the issue)
  • Cable is very flexible and not fragile or petite, no special treatment no issues.  Drop dead silent backgrounds- almost spooky quiet
  • The background noise of a recording (tape hiss, radio white noise, recorded HVAC noise, venue background noise) was almost inaudible even when I knew it was there. This feature resulted in a relaxed non-edgy presentation. my metal dome tweeters which can cut class with a bad recording.
  • Transients- the first of the cables defining characteristics was its outstanding transient speed and inner detail, macro and micro transient information was superb. The inner detail was always organic not etched. This is an unusual quality, as I really got to appreciate what a lot of artists I have been listening to for decades had done from an inner detail perspective. This was evident on identifying the difference between high quality recordings with good recording techniques to the vast ocean of lesser recordings. This cable allowed the identification of the musicians techniques (fingering of guitar strings, plucking of violin, pedal use on piano, skin sound of drums, which type of stick is the drummer using, which brand of cymbal, baby/ grand/ standup piano), absolutely a musicians cable yet not analytical in nature
  • Spatial reproduction- the second defining characteristic of the cable was its lack of ability to develop a 3D image. The width and depth of the recordings stage were always the same and this did not vary with the recording used or where the Love Cable was used in the system. This prevented the illusion of a musician in the room or on a stage with me at the venue. This annoyed the heck out of me as I always was aware I was listening to a Hi-Fi as the cables caused a deviation from the recorded material. The “focal point” or “sweet spot” in my listening room was very small with Love Cable so there was only one ‘best’ seating position rather than the entire couch.
  • Overall a pretty balanced tone, BUT let there be no mistake there was a slight deviation from neutrality… the BASS was the star of the show (I found myself purposely favoring bass/ drum or percussion heavy music). The bass was epic, concussive, ALWAYS UNDER COMPLETE CONTROL, detailed, accurate, and addictive.  I, and my neighbors, got to explore a lot of loud music from my collection. It was like a drug, easily the most accurate bass/ percussion I have heard in my system. The rest of the mid and HF were very good as well but the lower octaves were the favorite child in this family.
  • The cable is not completely neutral it always had a slight identifiable ‘flavor’ (identified in 4a, c, d). My analogy to its deviation from neutrality is ‘James Bond’. All kinds of things happened to Daniel Craig or Roger Moore in those movies but they always looked clean and pressed in their suit before and after car accidents, bombings, fires, and fights. And that was kind of what Love Cables did they told the story but always with a happier ending then there should have been.
  • I liked this cable a lot and tried it between every component and am now using it in my stereos tonal problematic point (between the CD player and the Preamp). If it wasn’t for items 4a and 4c above it would have been between the preamp and power amp but that position requires complete neutrality.
  • Overall the timbre was very good to exceptional.  I will not use the term ‘musical’ as that is typically a euphemism for a pleasing tonal deviation from neutrality, they were tonally accurate to the recording but maybe a little ‘dry’ (but not clinical) missing some hall reverberation.
  • Good value for the money, need to spend ~ $2000 for a more neutral cable (Kimber, Tara, Wireworld Platinum)

1987 PRS Custom 24 – High Grade “Player’s Condition”

1987 PRS Custom 24 that is a true high grade “Player’s Grade”.  NO breaks just honest wear and changes to enhance the tone & playability.   Priced to move for someone that wants a piece that is ready to enjoy without fear.

SEE COMPLETE SPECS & CONDITION IN 3rd PICTURE for details like weight, case, etc!

First off, you can see in the pictures that there is wear on the guitar throughout; however the frets are fine with no grooves.   It’s a classic 10′ guitar that looks great from a small distance (we used to call women 9-irons cuz they looked great from 110 yards out).

Second, the pickups have been upgraded to Railhammers…YEAH a HUGE upgrade from the pencil thin tone of the originals…NO the originals are gone and I don’t know where they are (why do people ask…do they think I am penpals with them?).  The wiring has also been modified.

You play this piece and you will thank the owner who modded it.  The owner was a hugely talented local player who is highly regarded as one of the midatlantic’s best.
