PRS Standard Solidbody Tobacco Sunburst, 1987

PRS Standard Solidbody Tobacco Sunburst, 1987

The PRS Standard appeared in 1987 as an evolutionary step and as a model rename from the 1985 PRS model, with carved top, all Mahogany construction except for the 1o inch radius, 25 inch scale Rosewood fingerboard. Until 1991, Brazilian Rosewood was used for fingerboards on this model. Here we’re looking at a PRS Standard, built during 1987 in Stevensville, Maryland and sporting a dark tobacco sunburst model, which transitions to a darker red on the back and neck.
