    I have no idea when this was taken, but this is an authentic '59 Burst, SN 9 1098.

    I could complain because there's someone else's DNA on the fretboard.Surely not the cost/asking price...

    Going by that price, mid 90's. It's a plain top so even could be later in the decade.

    How much do y'all think that thing is worth now?

    Do the cream pickups make it more or less valuable? Those are pretty rare, right?

    Uga,

    Please don't start telling folks about the 85 and 86 PRS guitars. Some of the 85's are already at $20k and they haven't even passed the 25 year mark yet.

    I'm afraid if the word gets out the inventory will dry up.....shhhhhhhhhhh...

    :)
