    SE Soapbar II Maple Top Paintjobs

    Hey. this is my first post, and i did check out the FAQs and rules before posting, but if I'm breaking any rules I'm unaware of, sorry!

    But down to business, I've been looking for a guitar with single coils for a while, as i already have a Gibson w/ humbuckers, and I was originally going to get this:
    http://www.fender.com/guitars/teleca...ut-telecaster/
    but recently, a few friends of mine got PRS SEs, and I absolutely fell in love with the necks, and I started looking for PRS guitars within my price range (about 600) and I saw the new PRS SE Soapbars, but there's a problem; I want a guitar with a double cut-away, and the new soapbars are single. So after a little bit of research i came across the PRS SE Soapbar II, which has been discontinued, and decided I had to have one. But I can only find four colors that come with a maple top (must have), black, white, a blue/aquamarine burst, and a tobacco burst. But I really don't want the tobacco burst, and I want something more red, but the only ones i can find in cherry or vintage cherry are solid mahogany without the cap, and I was wondering if there were any more that I'm unaware of. I have until about about July until I can get it, but I figured having one scoped out would be good. Please help!

    The maple tops are just a veneer, but don't let that stop you! I adore my soapbar II so much I left it stock... And I don't do that.

    The maple veneer is not going to affect the tone at all, so from that perspective don't worry about it. If you're set on the bling factor of the veneer, then you're only left with those limited options.

    I have one in Sergio-approved Antique White, and it's a tone monster!

    Welcome to the forum! I'm pretty sure there are red ones around, but to be that specific about the colours to buy, it'll be hard to find one especially since you can only look for used ones. Maybe you should wait till the Exp2013 to see what's coming out, then decide what to buy. I'm pretty sure you can also get P90-voiced humbuckers, they will work more or less the same way
