    Quick SE Singlecut trem question

    I am looking at getting my second SE singlecut, but this time with the trem. I really like the blue one but I havent found any pictures that show the binding very well. Some of the pictures look like there is no binding at all! I have an SE singlecut in vintage burst and really like the natural binding on it. Does anyone know what the Singlecut trem binding is like, and if you have a picture, even more awesome! I've spent the last hour looking for pics and so far all I have found was a pick of the red one that looks like it has some red binding.

    I am also considering the Tremonti SE custom instead of the Singlecut trem, I know they are thicker, I am wondering how much weight and feel difference are we talking? I also know they have a slightly thinner neck.

    I believe the Singlecut Trem SE has a "scraped" binding, as does the Tremonti SE Custom.
    It's not as pronounced as the white plastic binding on Les Pauls but it's there and, IMO, it looks classy.
    I also LOVE the neck carve on the Tremonti SE Custom, but you should probably play them both and decide for yourself.

    Here's a picture of my new Tremonti SE Custom.

    I don't think the Royal Blue ones have the scraped binding.

    WoW ... thanks for posting those pics.
    I never would have guessed they did not have binding.

    I wonder why?
