These CE24s are always a pleasant surprise - its a killer sounding design.  

This example has some modifications that players will dig, and the original stuff is there for the PRS purist to return the guitar if they wish.

There is one non-reversible change - the original finish on back of the neck has been nicely reduced to the bare wood.  The neck was not re-shaped in the process.

The original HFS and Vintage Bass pickups are in the case, along with the original pots and switch.  The electronics swap was very nicely done - see the pics.  Lindy Fralin Pure PAF pickups are in the guitar.  They sound really good - you might just want to keep the guitar this way!

The original tuners are also in the case, replaced with a set of Schaller locking tuners that didn't require a change to the headstock.

There are some dings here and there, see pics and zoom in for details, but overall the guitar is in excellent cosmetic condition.

The weight is just over 8lbs.  The neck plays perfectly with no issues.  The truss rod has been checked to make sure there is room for future relief adjustment.

Original case included.
