    This is true but I think the price is a real issue here in the UK. I've noticed that the response to the S2 is very different on British forum sites and from British posters. I spoke to a friend who...

    I like the idea well enough :pand I bet I'll like the guitars :D, I'm just not struck on the price point it's set at here :eek:

    Those stock PRS pickups are actually pretty good. I've also used Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio pickups and while I much prefer DiMarzio, as soon as I'd tried Bare Knuckle, I just couldn't use anything...

    I have no axe to grind at all; I think PRS are wonderful guitars, which is probably why I have two of them and you are certainly right that taxes are a major issue here. You'd normally expect the...

    I notice that GuitarGuitar have them listed at 1250. I will reserve final judgement but for 1250 I'd beexpecting a VERY nice guitar with some quality hardware on it and made fromsome quality wood....

    While there are some bits I don't agree with there, I think that is probably just because I'm not from Maryland and not even American so you may well be right. I do however, agree with the last bit...

    Obviously I wouldn't be expecting a full spec PRS made in Korea for the price of the S2, all I'm saying is that by having production in Korea it would have freed up a bit of money to make the guitar...

    By the same token, it may be 400-500 more expensive than an SE but part of that HAS to be down to higher American production costs. By the same token, it's still 1000-2000 cheaper than a proper...

    I'm certainly not saying that they're bad guitars; I have no doubt they'll be superb but it boils down to where your priorities lie to get the guitar to a specific price point. It seems to me that...

    It's interesting that here on the PRS forum everyone seems very enthusiastic about the S2 guitars whereas on other forums the reception to this news is far more luke warm. To a degree I do get what...

    A lot cheaper than the normal USA guitars but a fair bit more than the SE range and I'm unclear exactly how they're different for the extra money.

    I see you've made your decision and I think it's a tough call between the PA and CU24. I've always liked the idea of the PA but personally, I would (and did) go the other way. There are a number of...

    Thank you very much. Adjustment made and guitar now perfect. Still needs a proper setup as the action is too high for me but I'll do that when the new Bare Knuckles arrive for it :D

    Minor problem

    I picked up a new PRS SE Custom 24 today in quilted purple to go with the 25th anniversary model I already own. The guitar is beautiful but when I got it home and fitted the trem arm, it was very...

    Oddly enough, I was just looking at those a little earlier so I'd be VERY interested to hear your impressions of how it compares to a proper Les Paul tone. The body looks a bit thinner in the...

    Obviously there's only so much I can do online and eventually I have to play them but some do now seem more likely than others.

    PRS - If the Tremonti is as bright or brighter than a Custom 24 I...

    The Jackson cost about 900 new so I doubt I'd get more than 500 for it tops.

    The Bernie Marsden and indeed the 245 guitars appeal a great deal but the fat neck is a pain. Over the last X number of years I've owned a Fender Strat with a modern C shape neck, an Ibanez RGT42,...

    A PRS would be my first choice simply because I like my Custom 24 so much. For the money I just don't think you can beat the SE range. However, there's more to this than brand loyalty. Although I...

    Mmmmm, well I didn't expect to be on a PRS forum and the first response to tell me to buy an Epiphone, lol!

    In terms of the sound of the guitar, I'm more interested in how it sounds acoustically...

    Single cut question

    At the moment I have two guitars (I'm not a collector so two is enough for me), a Jackson SL3 Soloist and a PRS SE Custom 24 25th Anniversary. The Jackson is set up as a Metal guitar with Bare...

    Pickups can be a minefield and it's easy to get it wrong. When I started to buy Bare Knuckle pickups I did a lot of research as it was a lot of money to spend and I wanted to be sure they were...

    Nice guitar, congratulations.

    I noticed while skimming through this thread that you seemed a bit wary of modifying a guitar and said that you felt the Custom 24 was really a Metal guitar but to my...

    I normally change pups anyway to Bare Knuckle, hence my preference for an HFS/VB combo to be fitted as standard but with actives I would have had to change the electrics as well. At the time I didn't...

    Thoughts on Torero

    Hi,

    I'm pretty new to the forum so thought I'd firstly introduce myself and secondly mention a guitar that first attracted me to PRS yet I didn't buy it.

    I was looking for a 24 fret guitar with...
