    Disappointed in PRS

    I have impatiently been waiting on the new S2 Singlecuts to arrive. Wildwood doesn't show any. Sam Ash's customer service didn't even know what I was talking about when I asked them- despite having the guitar listed on their site and on ebay. In fact, after I clarified what I wanted, I never heard back. Sweetwater has posted one- the Blue Crab one that a forum member purchased. I really wanted to try one of these guitars.

    So I have given up hope.

    And I bought this instead:



    I'd take another picture, but my cheap-o phone just crapped out. At least I got the headstock.

    Anyhoo, seems it's a 2008 model according to the hangtag. And there is a "for your records" paper that has a purchase date of Nov 2013 from GC. GC has never provided me with one of these on any guitar i've bought from them, so is this a PRS thing? And does this mean GC sold a 2008 guitar as NOS in 2013?

    A 2008 sold in 2013 probably isn't that common but not unheard of. I'd take a SC245 over the S2 everyday of the week. Great guitars.

    I know talking $$$ is verboten, but I'll just say that when given the chance to buy a Core SC used for less than a new S2, I jumped.

    Oh the humanity! You poor soul... having to buy a top of the line guitar instead of a more affordable but still well made S2 series guitar.
    I'm going to take up a collection from the boys so that we can buy you a tissue.

    Of course you jumped - in the right direction.
    I really like the SC245.

    'nuff said.....awesome score man. I know you are disappointed that you didn't get to try out the S2, but I would say you did pretty darn good!

    More pics!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.
