    There's no classifieds or FS forum here?

    Looks like not.
    Are we allowed to post Wanted to Buy threads here? Cause...I'm kinda looking for a great deal on an SE.

    My main gigger is a 2011 Studio. My ex #1 and my current back-up/drop D guitar is my trusted old '94 CE24. I also bring a black '03 McSoapy Standard for awesome pukey evil sounding open G slide work on the stage.
    So...for me right now it's ALL PRS onstage.

    I always used to be a Fender guy. Played Strats all my life and even after I started the PRS love affair I always kept one or two handy.
    Well...I was doing a little gigging and vacaying in the Cayman Islands this year and I brought a strat down there (another thing I used my strats for was travel to humid and sandy and salty places..I didnt have to worry too much about damage or loss by the airlines or just general abuse from the tropics) and when it was time to come home I gave the gear I brought down with me to a guitar loving kid with a broke single Mom. I gave the strat and it's case, 2 cables, a tuner with a spare battery..and I gave a couple of mics (a beta58 and an AKG3700..YAY...give this man a medal!!).
    Oh...funny antidote...I got home on Thursday and had a Friday and Saturday casino gig the next day(s). Go to start song one of set two and ..NOTHING!! Ohoh.
    WOW!! My guitar cable failed. I quickly head to the area behind my amp, reach into my Gretsch purse (It's a SATCHEL!!!!!) to grab a spare cable and...oh crap..I gave them away lol..oopsies.

    OK so...I get back from the Caymans gigs and I'm short one "beater" guitar (hey..it wasnt a beater or a beat-up strat...I just call all Fenders beaters cause I play PRSs lol). I thought...ok well I've been wanting another Tele for a long time...maybe I'll look for a cheap one of those..oh but wait...my parts drawer doesnt have any tele pups in it. The Strat I gave away was a partscaster. Kinda bought it mainly TO use-up some of the awesome Strat parts (pups, electronics etc) in my partsdrawer.
    OK maybe not a tele...I have piles of awesome Humbuckers...but as much as I love the looks of a Les Paul....I really do ..so much so in fact that just about annually I buy yet another and try to bond with it but I just can't get used to the soft, rubber-band-ish, short-scale, easy, mushy feel of a Gibson. I've tried and tried but no. Even if I try heavier strings I just can't bond with a Les Paul no matter how much I try.

    That's when I had the "WAITASECOND MISTER" moment.
    I've never owned, in fact I've only ever tried one PRS SE. I got to try an HB one on the Caymans and it felt great...AHA!! THAT'S what I'll start looking for when I get home...a nice cheap used SE!!
    I really really like the recent ones with the birds though I'm not a guy who goes for bling..none of my PRSs are tens and two of them are actually opaque. I don't want or need another P90 guitar. I'd love to have a blue one with some figuring on the top (my Wife loves blue quilt PRSs and even got a tattoo of one...heck she even bought me the Studio in SaphireSmokeBurst to match her tatt).
    IF this is allowed here..(if not SORRY...oopsies..mods please delete this post without banning me...just a stern scolding should do the trick)...anyone got a nice cheap SE for sale? A blue one?
    Thanks fellas.

    oopsies. Guilty of...checking the box without actually doing the "I have read and agree with all the fine print" thing.
    Hopefully what I said is (barely?) within the rules...you know, the part about being in the market for a you know what.
    Heck..in another post I stated what I paid for my used PRSs in '05. I hope that's ok. It wasnt at all a For Sale post...they are not for sale..I only stated that I had sold a vintage Gibby (and for how much) to buy a pair of used PRSs (and stated how much I got them for).
    Man..I sure hope I dont get the boot on my first day of real posting. Yikes and gulp.
    I've been trying hard to be good here. Trying to stay absolutely G-rated.
    If I've broken rules..I apoligize sincerely.

    Well... it seems as though you're laying on the sarcasm pretty thick - but I could be wrong - so lemme dispel a few misconceptions newbie's might have after reading your post.
    1) The rules state "Please do not post items for sale or discuss retail or wholesale pricing of any kind." But they do not preclude you from mentioning that fact that you're looking for a PRS. It does, however, preclude people from responding to you in the open forum.
    2) I think you know you're not in danger of getting the boot - or even close. We've only ever booted one guy from this place (that wasn't a spam'er). He was warned over and over and decided he was smarter than everyone else - so he continued to be an antagonist. There are some places where you'll get bumped for failing to fall in line or for telling the emperor he's naked. This isn't one of them.
    3) Thank you for "trying to be good here". We are a polite community, not a sterile community. Whether or not you feel like you have to be "G-rated" is your decision. PG-13 is safe. We dip our toes into R-rated discussions from time to time. If you see a post that crosses a line, just report it.

    If you're looking classifieds - plenty of other sites have that covered. No need to do it here.



    If you haven't found some already google " The Gear Page" and "Vintage Rocker Forums". I think you'll find what you are looking for on that front.
