    Yeah, that is nice.
    I think if I buy another SE though after I get the Custom 24, it is going to be one like I just got my son.
    I could not put it down over the long weekend we just had.
    I think the 25" scale made a big difference over my Santanas shorter one.

    I actually find the 7 string a little easier because it gives you that extra string to incorporate into chords and runs instead of trying to find a way to on other parts of the fretboard.

    Can I get a two-string?

    I'm having too much trouble with 6.

    This just went up on YouTube. A few PRS employees checking out the 7 String. You might recognize a few of them

    It's cool that PRS is releasing a 7-string. So far only Ibanez has done the neck right, Schecters are just godawful comfortable - so is PRS 7-string necks feel as comfortable as Ibanez they should give them a run for their money. Though PRS could have put up a more versatile video than everyone chugging away on the two bottom strings. The tonal range of this monster should be displayed to blow everyone away like we all know PRS guitars can

    Unlikely i'll be in the market for a 7 string any time soon - need to get my head round the other 6 strings first - but they are looking stunning! More blue SE's!!!

    Any chance of a limited edition Bernie in blue? I could justify buying another if it was that colour!!!

    So 99% of PRS guitars get time in Pauls studio for a demo but the hugely anticipated 7 string gets shot in the hallway? IM OUTRAGED!


    [I'm kidding - we appreciate the quick video to hold us over until this weekend <3]

    No pomp.

    No circumstance.

    Just a fist in your face.

    Are the SE HFS and VB exact same specs as the USA? Wonder how these larger pups will differ in sound.

    I'm a little surprised that this isn't coming out as a Dave Weiner signature model. He has been playing some pretty sweet PRS seven strings for a while now (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5_xEpmXMkE), including on Mr. Vai's current The Story Of Light tour.

    Hmm... the SE Weiner... that could be tough to market.

    Nothing against him of course.
    -I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.

    Nice! Maybe Daisy Rock would want that one? I was thinking more along the lines of an DW SE though. Thanks for the laugh!
