My dear friend Jason Kostal, world renown luthier, has decided to sell part of his amazing guitar collection and has invested his trust in me to handle it.
As he explains in the video himself "It is time to let someone who will play them enjoy these world class instruments".
The instruments were kept in a humidity and temperature controlled room and are pretty much in new condition. Higher resolution here: https://vintage-tone.myportfolio.com/prs-private-stock-jason-kostal
This one is very special to Jason as he designed the "sunburst maple inlays" that PRS at the time deemed "impossible to make" as they would deteriorate quickly due to finger oils and friction. Jason decided to recess each inlay and cover them with a thin protective coat of museum grade epoxy and they made it happen. Inlay artist Jamie Aulsen joined the project to do the "Strad Purfling", tribute to Stradivari Instruments and it was finished in "violin", a truly beautiful finish that brings out the depth of the flamed maple & curly mahogany back.
This guitar is in new condition and as mentioned earlier, spent its life in a humidity controlled room.
I m mostly looking for cash (besides a refin or beater rosewood Strat 59 to 65) or cash + trades in the 20k ballpark or solid cash offer.
