Hmmmn, I don't have a semi-hollow PRS . . . yet.
Congrats Doug. That's a beauty!
Beautiful guitar! Enjoy it in good health for many decades!!!
Neither do I.
(sound of clock ticking...)
WOW---that is beautiful
Congratulations on a great looking guitar. I'm sure it will be everything you expect it will be. Where would we be without enablers? Enjoy and have fun.
Actually it's a true hollow body.
Instead of a full-length center block, they use a single block of wood big enough to anchor the bridge and tailpiece leaving the rest of the body hollow.
This allows for a solid-body style bridge and tailpiece instead of a trapeze tailpiece and a floating bridge.
I love the way they think!
I don't have a PRS of any description!! These threads are killing me!!!
She's a beautiful looking guitar Doug, enjoy the heck out of it.
Your mission is clear!
Get thee behind me.........
It's too late for invocations.
Something tells me that the only thing that will be behind you is the box in which it arrived.
Face it... at this point we both know it's just a matter of time.
Wow, that's just beautiful.
Very nice. I am always a big fan of tobacco sunburst. I might have kept the PRS I just bought if it had been that one. I bought a new 2020 SE Custom 24 for $490. Couldn’t pass it up at that cost. Since I bought it on eBay I was apprehensive until I got it. It was flawless. Everything about it was top quality. However, I just could not bond with the pickups. With my arthritic hands, a thicker neck is more comfortable to play, and this neck just didn’t work for me. Being a brutal picker, I kept hitting the volume knob as it is similar to a Strat position. And I kept stepping on the cord. It seems to be a little more forward than say my Les Paul. After playing it for a couple of days I realized my Les Paul and Flying V I made are my go to guitars. I did scratch the itch though and I’m glad I did. It really is a fine instrument, just not for me. A friend of mine said He might want to buy it. Since he’s had 3 or 4 days now I’m thinking he wants it.
Slofinger, I hope your friend decides to buy your SE Custom 24. I could not bond with the pickups in mine either ... they are decidedly leaning towards classic rock. Oh, I could play blues with them OK but they were just too "hot" and I swapped them out for a set of Bare Knuckle pickups ... which added $300.00 to "the deal". Now I am exceedingly happy with it. I have a light touch and have never had a problem bumping volume knobs on anything. The neck position isn't quite as "deep sounding" as the neck position on a Les Paul due to the 24 frets forcing its location to be a bit closer to the bridge, but it is a very satisfying guitar nonetheless. I will say that the SE build quality is as good or better than any Gibson I have ever picked up regardless of price.
Stunning guitar!! May you enjoy her for many years to come
Nice! .....and I was sitting here thinking I had all the guitars I ever needed.....
It's a quaint thought isn't it?
