    Well, the SE models are "Student Edition" and are made to be more affordable. If they were the complete shiznit no one here would prefer a US-made guitar, right? I've tried a lot of them in stores...

    Leave a few instruments fellas... I get in middle of Friday but as I'm meeting a friend may not actually get to the factory until Saturday.

    Assuming you mean glued-in neck, not neck-through? If you like a slimmer neck then best prob'ly to go to a dealer and just try a bunch. Like you, I was sort of initially thinking a "real" PRS was set...

    It sounds like you'd be right at home with a CE. The CE24 came with a wide-thin neck which is very comfy, and its bolt-on maple neck gives it a slightly more stratty feel. It's a very versatile...

    Thanks, Shark! We're playing at Smith's on Saturday the 5th of October... I'll be playing the green CE24 as always. As for the Experience.. I'll be the middle-aged dude drooling over the expensive...

    So I bought my first (and given my finances the only) PRS just a couple months ago and have never been to a guitar factory of any sort. I did register for the Experience and arrive Friday afternoon....

    For live use the F-style slider is better for me. I can tell from the corner of my eye how many clicks I need to go to get to the sound I want, and a slider that has gotten some use over the years...

    Thank you, James. I'd forgotten about Minus the Bear. And I'm a big Pixies/Santiago fan.

  10. Show of hands: Who's using a PRS in the "indie" rock scene?

    I've always played in originals bands, and so bounced around in a pretty gritty netherworld of hole-in-the wall clubs, house parties, punk bars, and such. Managed to rise up to 1000-seat theaters in...

    That's me in the avatar pic, with my green CE 24. I'll be there Saturday, ideally with a very attractive blonde friend. You'll notice her!

    I'd like to try an S2. I like the idea of taking the real value of something - design, factory QC - and cutting the corners where they can be cut, in the bits and pieces that aren't essential, so the...
  14. Nice PRS owner and company experience to share

    So last week I ordered a new vibrato arm from PRS, as the CE24 I bought came without one. I asked for 3-day shipping to have it in time for a show Thursday.

    The package arrives. Inside are... a...

    One less thing to think about. My pedal tuner is stuck on the pedalboard with all the other crap I play through, so all's I do is plug in. I'm lucky to remember my capo and earplugs and picks, and I...

    That's tough. All's I own is a CE24 and that pretty much does exactly what I want. Probably a Tremonti, as I'm guessing it'd be more bass-heavy with the single cut and those pickups. Don't really...

  19. Weird question: Anyone have ideas for a UK booking agent?

    The (American) band I'm in ( http://facebook.com/thelowready ) want to do some UK dates. We've got a new record coming out (not like many people noticed Sugar on the Stick) as well.

    A little...

    Dan-d-1985... I see you're in Edinburgh. I go there a lot! I played at Whistle Binkie's solo about three weeks ago. What a great city!
