Mike didn't sell it to me
You've determined it's an American made SE, but I haven't seen a picture of the one you own, or played, or built.
You know, there are a lot of interesting threads here. Many members have some awesome SE mods. There's a song title game. and not least of all, Private Stock Friday.
You might find something interesting enough to post about in one of those. Join the rest of the fun.
I just did the math on how much it would cost to upgrade an SE to S2 spec... The S2's are an incredible deal!
-I'm no expert, but it seems to work and I haven't electrocuted myself yet. Which is pretty much the standard I live by.
S2 Custom 22 Semi-Hollow - SE Akesson+57/08's - SE Custom 24 25th Anniversary - SE 30 Head/Cab
As an aside: I remember all of the hate that was directed at PRS when they first introduced the PRS Electric (a.k.a. the CE24). Most guitarists saw the PRS Electric as the SE of the day. People loved how they played, but no one wanted a bolt-on PRS, especially when the retail cost differential between the PRS Electric and a no-frills Custom 24 was around $450.00 to $500.00. What did PRS do in response to lackluster sales? They tweaked the specs, resulting in the CE becoming one PRS' most successful models. The tops on the early maple-topped CEs were nothing to write home about. In fact, some of the tops on the early CEs were butt ugly, but the product improved over time. I suspect that the same thing will happen with the S2 models.

And by "interesting" I don't mean to imply that it's a particularly intelligent thing to say, under circumstances where you have no experience with one whatsoever. And neither do the rest of us.

I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken...
I have been reading and I have heard about the S2 but has anyone really picked one up yet?
They are due in the stores in early August so only a few here have played or seen one in person yet. The Starla S2 is calling me so I may come back from the Experience with one.
