World Guitars 8th Anniversary PRS Custom 24 Faded Purple Jean


Jeff opened Machinehead Music in 1983. A few years later he was the first dealer in the UK to carry PRS Guitars. In 1993, as it was the shops 10th Anniversary, Paul suggested that they did a very special run of Limited Guitars to celebrate it. The Custom 22 in Deep Purple (Jeff’s favourite band) was built and sold out straight away.

Again in 2003 for the 20th Anniversary Jeff asked Paul if he would make another run of guitars, this time Custom 24’s, again in a Purple finish.


As many of you know Jeff very sadly passed away in November 2015. We had spoken about starting the Anniversary run again for World Guitars 10th Anniversary. In January this year at the Namm Show I sat down with Paul and we planned something very special for Jeff. A Custom 24 Artist Package featuring all of Jeff’s favourite spec including HFS and Vintage Bass Pickups, Natural Back, Flame Maple Neck and a One Piece Top.


Paul then decided that he would personally select all of the woods for this Limited Run from the Private Stock Vault! What we have created is a guitar that celebrates every year that World Guitars has been in business and a guitar that Jeff would have loved. We also invented a very special colour. Jeff’s favourite colour was Faded Blue Jean so it had to be Faded Purple Jean.
