Paul Reed Smith PRS Private Stock Guitar for Sale

I purchased this
guitar, new, in January 2013 from a guitar collector who specializes in “Private Stock” PRS axes. Since then it has been out of the case approximately five times: for an
initial inspection and to show to family and friends; finally for the photo
session necessary for this ad.
PRS Private Stock

I played it for
about 5 minutes upon inspection in 2013.

I am not a dealer nor am I a certified luthier. I make no specific product
guarantee or warranty. I do care very much about my eBay reputation and am
committed to customer satisfaction. I have sold and shipped well over 35 gitars. I’ve sold several amplifiers, stomp boxes, and multi-effects units; even a drum set. Every one seemed satisfied with their purcase and some were positively giddy. I do my very best to ensure customer satisfaction. I try to photograph any scratches, belt buckle rash, cracks, etc.. I want the customer to know what he’s about to bid on. I usually include a few dozen photos, in addition to the 12 eBay affords the seller at the top of an add.
Checkout my feedback. My customers have been very happy with their purchases, the packing and fast delivery. I nearly always get their purchases out the very next business day.
I’ve sold guitars that ranged in price from a few hundred dollars up to $7,000 and have a lot of experience with packing and shipping these instruments. These days I prefer to use USPS. I’ve used UPS and Fedex and now prefer USPS. My last few sales were conducted with United States Postal Service and they were all good. Their priority mail guarantees delivery in one to three days.

I will very carefully
pack the guitar for shipping – the strings de-tuned and the guitar immobilized
within the case. The guitar will be shipped in a sturdy new Uline guitar carton

prospective buyers to have confidence in their sellers. I do everything within
my power to ensure there are absolutely no issues with the sale, the
communication and the shipping of sold guitars.
