Do you guys know the story about the PRS Custom finish, Bonni Pink?  Bonni Lloyd was an early PRS employee, one of the first.  She wanted a pink guitar and they guys at PRS made her one.  Word got out and PRS made a few in very limited numbers during the late 1980's. Those guitars are highly sought after and are valuable collectors items.  This one just came in, we had to wait a while to get it, again, it is being made in limited numbers.  This guitar is new, a PRS Custom 24 with flames out the wazoo, a 10 top, bird inlays, and of course, the super cool Bonni Pink finish.  It has a pattern/thin neck and vibrato.  The finish is so cool, it's awesome.  Oh, there may be some that scoff at a pink finish, but remember, Jeff Beck played a pink Charvel.  You think you are cooler than Jeff Beck?  I don't think so.  So, man up and get this great guitar before some other, less insecure person grabs it.  Comes with hard case.

The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith brought to the public at PRS Guitars’ first Winter NAMM show in 1985 and has been a top seller ever since. Played by internationally touring artists, gigging musicians, and aspiring players, the Custom 24 features PRS’s patented Gen III tremolo system and PRS 85/15 pickups with volume and tone controls and a 5-way blade switch. 85/15 pickups were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith to offer remarkable clarity and extended high and low end.
