This guitar is in our Hall of Fame Collection and is no longer available for purchase.


1986 PRS Pre Standard finished in a very rare Canary Yellow.

Here we have an '86 Canary Yellow 'Pre Standard'. This one owner guitar was purchased new from Wurlitzer Music in Boston in 1986 and was played extensively by the owner with such bands as Chubby Checker, (Martha Reeves, The Drifters, The Coasters, The Turtles, Paul Revere, etc..).

It has the wear to prove it too, and had EMG pickups installed at one point but is now put back to original. The sweet switch hole was enlarged slightly and now sports a washer to hold the sweet switch in place. Everything has been put back to original and it just had a setup. It plays and sounds magnificently and has T and B pickups as well as the cocked wah setting on the rotary. One might wonder why this is not an '85 with this low a serial number and this is likely one of the first '86s shipped.

Comes with its original case and warranty card as well as the bill of sale. Canary Yellow is one of the rarest of all PRS colors and we have heard estimates of between 4-14 total units painted in this color. Here is a rare chance to get a super collectible PRS that you won't be afraid to play.

Serial: 6 0516

Comes with Original Hardshell Case, Original Bill of Sale, and Paperwork
