I just got this a few days ago. An SE Bernie Marsden. :p

I bought it from Sweetwater. It's 8 lbs. 3 oz.

Outta the box it's nice, though I'm thinking of putting some nickel covers on the pups...after that I'll decide if the pups stay or go. So far I don't have any complaints.

It's the first PRS I've ever had. I always referred to them as a "Frank Lloyd Wright" but I'm diggin' it.

I have about thirty other guitars and I primarily play Telecasters and Les Pauls.

I will say that this is indeed a bargain at $xxx.xx... (price has been edited per suggestions) I don't think it can get any better for an import.

I would like to say that the thing that sold me on this guitar was "MikeGarveyBlues" youtube review. Thanks Mike!!! I ordered this thing without ever actually seeing one in person.

This is a pic of it from the sweetwater site.

Looks great!!!

That's PRS quality for you though. They're one of a small handfull of brands I would buy blind.

Nice score! Congrats!

p.s. we don't really talk about prices (http://prsguitars.com/forum/showthread.php?920-Official-Forum-Rules-Read-em!) on here, just letting you know! :)

I like it! But it would be a shame to cover up those great zebra coils. Spend the moolah on some lampshade knobs instead!

I'm not sure I understand why we can't talk about prices? If PRS is coming out with a new model, why can't we discuss the price of the guitar, versus the price of another guitar. Makes no sense to me. I can see not allowing spam of course, except maybe in a spam only thread. But otherwise, the price of a guitar is an important topic to most guitarists. It's like saying we can't debate single coil versus humbuckers, another important topic.
