I'm thinking of trading a very nice McCarty(non 10 top, McCarty Burst...nice flame top, moon inlays) for a CE22 with Maple top (ironically in McCarty Burst, a little less flame than my McCarty, mint shape). Both are about the same age. Reason I'm thinking about it is that I prefer the feel of a tremolo over a tailpiece and when I play live I sweat a bit and finished necks get real sticky to me...

My big concern is value..Yes I know that the value of a CE is less than a McCarty..but by the looks of ebay only maybe $100-$200?? If that. I really want the unfinished neck and I kinda like the sound of the CE a bit better.. I guess my question is this...

Do you guys thing the CE will go up in value over time since it's discontinued? I was thinking, it's like the only PRS I can think of that sold well that they discontinued. Or at least didn't reintroduce. I think as far as gigging the CE would be better, but I trade a lot and don't want to lose my butt...What do you guys think? Do you think the value difference for what I want is sufficient enough or will I lose my pants over time too much?

THANKS!
