    Out of my 3 PRSi my CE is only 2nd to my Rosewood CU24. I LOVE my CE. VB/HFS combo which is my favorite combo.



    Though I am really starting to dig the 59/09s in my Cu24.

    Could everybody get excited about alder being the designated characteristic of what a new CE line would be all about?
    What if the new artist package options were available for the new CE?

    I wondered what happened to the Goldtop...I have looked at that guitar almost everyday since it arrived in '06. I too almost bought it about 20 times.!

    I own a 2002 CE 22, and I LOVE that guitar. That being said, one of the things I like about CE's is that you can find them for a fraction of what some of the other PRS's go for, so I'd like to see it kept in a lower price point. If I were going to do it, I say:
    -Standard bolt on maple neck
    -Rosewood or maple board option
    -CE unique inlays, as opposed to old birds or new birds, something exclusive.
    -Those cool faux bone buttons like on the DGT
    -Flat black headstock cover like the older CE's.
    -Volume/Tone, 3 way switch and x2 mini toggles like the 408 for coil splitting
    -Whatever pickups suit the guitar best, I'd lean towards the 59/09's myself.
    -Classic hardware look, without the hybrid gold/silver thing
    -Mahogany body, and a plain maple top(I still think plain maple is beautiful, and I imagine that would help keep the price point down)

    Some starting points!

    I would say hell yes as long as the maple board does not have the fugly black faced headstock overlay.

    I'm in:

    Alder back
    Solid color maple top (black, white, seafoam)
    Pattern Regular maple neck
    24 fret rosewood board/black headstock or maple board/maple headstock, both with dots
    visible side markers
    Phase IIs or IIIs
    59/09s or 59/09 bridge, VB neck
    vol, push/pull tone, 3-way metal toggle
    7.5-8.0 lbs

    Price would be paramount. The only reason I got into PRS was I found a USA model that I could actually afford - a used '97 CE24. Price it too high and I've got no interest. I've owned 4 over the years (still have 2) and they have all been outstanding.

    Reading through the thread I did'nt realize CE's were available with a 10 top. Did PRS put "10" on the headstock like they did on the CU models? Here are a couple pics of my '01 CE22, looks close to a 10 top to me but no "10" on the headstock...
