Haven't heard anything, sweetwater just says they are back ordered for a long time. (:

My local store has several on order . When the new Santana SE came out they had them long before many stores did . I'll keep you posted !

Anyone know if they will be making a wrap-around bridge version any time soon?

I wish they would make an SE24 with regular neck carve, I'm not a W/T fan... I'm debating a Tim Mahoney... on one had, it has the stop tail and 24 frets... I could see myself dropping in American HFS/Vbass and a vol/5way/sweet switch rig... would sound kiiilllller.. BUT.. I don't dig the poweder blue and the W/T... I dunno :(

Nice, Hans... but the nut would still be too wide for my short fingers... So... shave the sides of the neck down, refret because the frets are now too wide, reshape back with bondo... guess I would then have to send it off to paintguy for a metaling.... then, of course, American pups and early wiring harness... BEst replace the SE bridge with American bridge, slap some Phase IIs on there... hmmmm I think this SE is approaching PS $s soon :D

Looks great in Blue! Nice top on that as well.

07-09-2012, 05:30 PM
Looks great!

Not a blue guitar guy but that's real purty...have to see the tobacco burst in person, but might just like the blue better...

How do the pups sound tapped?

07-09-2012, 10:09 PM
I would say funky strat type sound .Not the real thing but close . I will be using this guitar for recording clean rhythm tracks

Man! That's sure nice looking.

07-12-2012, 04:41 AM
Beautiful instrument. Could you please post some photos showing the "profile" of guitar's body (new bevelled top)? Btw. how much does it weigh?

07-12-2012, 05:11 PM

The guitar weighs in about 9 pounds .The carve is not a lot but it does look nicer than the flat versions

Seriously thinking about trading up my '10 SE CST 24 for one - with the coil tap and the semi-carve, it's enticing. Probably spend the same amount for new pups and rewiring as I would if I trade it in on a new one.

My local music store has one incoming in Tobacco (like the blue better from what I've seen) so I am looking forward to trying it out.

I was at my local shop yesterday where I bought my Santana a few weeks back.
Stopped in to pick up a few sets of Cobalts, and I asked when these were coming in, and he said he had around 12 on order, so hopefully soon.

Stopped by my local dealer again on the way back from one site I work at, and none yet.
But man, he sure does have a lot of other nice SE and American PRS's in stock.

There is one Les Paul style there I saw that is actually hollow as it has the F hole on it.
He said it has a good sound to it.
