    Thanx, Jazzed-out!

    To be perfectly honest, I haven't started looking particularly hard as yet, but I will be, in the weeks and months ahead, especially if a new (custom order) CU-24 cannot be...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Many thanx, Serg!

    a) No brainer! In fact, I could install the rotary switch here myself, and as you've said, the Navarro is indeed very close to a CU-24 in almost all...

    Hello again guys,

    I took a moment to re-read this entire thread here this morning, and unless I'm mistaken, it sounds like it might be entirely possible for me to custom order a CU-24 directly...
  4. Thanks Sergio, and thanks also for your...

    Thanks Sergio, and thanks also for your meaningful contributions to this thread. Its helped me to begin learning some of what I needed to learn. I don't honestly know which way I'll end up going. If...
  5. Carl, Thanks for taking the time to share your...

    Carl,

    Thanks for taking the time to share your tale with me and the others, and you're right, it truly is a similar set of circumstances to mine, but I'm glad things have worked out for you. I...
  6. Right you are, LS! A slip of the tongue. They're...

    Right you are, LS! A slip of the tongue. They're both polymers, and both resins, as is polyester resin which has become far more common for guitars in recent years than polyurethane (ala John Suhr...
  7. And thanks to you too, Bob. Glad to hear that...

    And thanks to you too, Bob. Glad to hear that they're still available. In contrast to my earlier thoughts, it sounds like there is indeed plenty of hope for me in the future.
  8. Excellent! Thanks for the heads-up and the link,...

    Excellent! Thanks for the heads-up and the link, Altoidman. I guess I misunderstood someone earlier - I thought they were no longer available, but that's great news.
  9. Thanks for your comment. I think you may have...

    Thanks for your comment.

    I think you may have misunderstood me - I have no doubt that it was in fact a CU-24, and yes, I realize that certain cuts of mahogany can indeed get quite heavy - I've...
  10. Nope, no question that it was a set neck and no...

    Nope, no question that it was a set neck and no question that it was a flamed maple top. The top itself was gorgeous, as was the natural binding, but again, it was a heavy bugger, much heavier than I...
  11. Gentlemen, thank so-much for your continued...

    Gentlemen, thank so-much for your continued patience with me on this - I'm really grateful.

    Regarding the mahogany vs. alder issue, I'll say this much, I've owned a lot of different guitars...
  12. Bob, You've raised another question here...

    Bob,

    You've raised another question here altogether . . . does Paul Reed Smith sell their various pickups separately? I ask this because in looking over their website, it doesn't appear so.
  13. O.K., it sounds like the "CE" and "Custom-24" are...

    O.K., it sounds like the "CE" and "Custom-24" are two distinctly different models? If so, I used the wrong terminology earlier in equating them as the same. Mine had a glassed-in neck and it was...
  14. I should add that given the gloss black back and...

    I should add that given the gloss black back and sides on my earlier Custom 24, I suspect it may have been an alder body, rather than mahogany, and also, if someone could please clarify the...
  15. Butterfly . . . thanks for your comment and I'm...

    Butterfly . . . thanks for your comment and I'm encouraged by your assessment of the more current production models of PRS, but alas, this has not been my personal experience. I've hoped beyond hope...
  16. Yup, that's a fact, and its tougher still, when...

    Yup, that's a fact, and its tougher still, when the changes that prompt those fond memories, were brought upon you by your own foolish actions! I almost wish that the damned thing had been lost or...
  17. Interesting. I'm quite confident that the...

    Interesting. I'm quite confident that the original owner didn't change anything on it (the guitar was too new and he just wasn't that techie), and I could have swore that they were in fact covered,...
  18. Thanks for your reply. I can't tell you why,...

    Thanks for your reply.

    I can't tell you why, but "two" knobs just doesn't sound right. It definitely had a sweet switch and definitely lacked a blade switch (using a rotary instead), and yes, I...
  19. ATTN HISTORIANS: I NEED SOME HELP IDENTIFYING A PRS THAT I ONCE HAD

    Hi Folks,

    Sorry for the length of this thread, but I need some help and there really wasn't any way to taper it down. Anyway, I'm new to the Forum (first post) and I don't currently own a PRS of...
