We've brought in an awesome selection of near mint to mint PRS guitars recently, all from the 1990s and 2000s, including this beautiful 2010 305 model in powder blue.

The guitar is in perfect shape, looking at it did when it left the PRS shop.  Frets show little to no use.  It weighs in just under 7.5 pounds, so it feels great hanging on a strap, and it plays perfectly with low action.  Setup was a breeze.

The neck is maple, but unlike other PRS models with maple necks, it is a set-neck guitar.  I really dig the departure in tone from humbucker-loaded PRS guitars.  

Included is the original case and Guitar Center price tag.

A Premier Guitar review of the 305 from 2010 discusses the pickups and tone of the model:

"In a fitting start to my evaluation of the 305, I plugged it into a PRS 30 amp set to a clean tone. Toggling through the five pickup configurations quickly revealed the 305’s potential stylistic versatility. The 305 neck pickup has smooth warmth that is good for jazz, and combining the neck pickup with the middle pickup results in a clear, bold sound perfect for funk, while switching on the middle pickup alone adds more midrange edginess. The 305 bridge pickup is rich, bright, and sparkly, and whether combined with the middle pickup or on its own, it has a kick, snap, and twang that’s perfect for playing your favorite country licks or snarling rock.

When I threw a little amp overdrive into the mix, the 305 became even more fiery and alive—and it sustained with superb clarity. Using the different pickup positions, I was able to get a fat, throaty blues tone, a biting Hendrix-like overdrive, or a bright, singing lead tone with the flick of a switch. The 305 pickups have a wider dynamic range than your average singlecoils,

so you have the punch and detail of single-coils but with a fatter, warmer tone. Chugging power chords were muscular without being muddy, and even the notes in a more complex chord like an A13 rang out distinctly.

The super-effective Tone knob gives the 305 a wealth of tones to the mix, too. Whether I set the amp for clean or dirty settings, I felt any pickup setting had several distinct voices that I could access by moving the tone knob through its range. And it was easy to transform aggressive fuzz to more subdued distortion, or move from biting lead work to warm jazzy moves, with a quick adjustment.

I used the 305 for a number of recording sessions, including some music for television commercials and some music cues for reality television, which demanded fast moves between completely different musical styles. In every case, the 305 had a voice to fit the bill—whether it was blues, rock, spy/surf music, R&B, or country it performed flawlessly.

 Producers and engineers never have patience for a guitar that always goes out of tune, so thankfully tuning and intonation were never a problem. Nor did the 305 have any problem moving between various amplification or processor configurations—it sounded bold, clear, and cutting through tube amps and simulator plug-ins such as Digidesign Eleven Rack, Native Instruments Guitar Rig, and Line 6 Pod Farm. Indeed, the 305 was the very model of versatility, consistency, and reliability—enabling my work in the sessions to go smoothly, quickly, and without performance issues."
