You're looking at an important piece of PRS history--the 82nd McCarty ever made. This specific example is in museum quality condition--one owner, spent 27 years under a bed. This absolute museum-grade McCarty shows no signs of having ever been played and comes with every single scrap of case candy that it left the factory with in 1994, including the hand-numbered and signed backplate ("Ted M. McCarty, #82/100"). If you're a PRS collector or simply an appreciator of the man (McCarty) who was responsible for the Les Paul, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, SG, Byrdland, the Tune-O-Matic bridge, the humbucking pickup, etc.--this belongs in your collection. You will not find a cleaner example.
