    Interesting. I wonder what type of production changes they'd have to work out to make this happen. I'm sure it's mental torture at the very least.

    I really want an S2 version of the SE Custom Semi-Hollow. I don't care about the pickups. I have a set of 53/10s waiting for a guitar like that. Maybe 2014?

    Beveled top, trem option and no pickguard?

    I'd love to see something along these lines. Have also been wondering if they might change to a bevel on the SE semi, since it's one of the few that still has a flat top. Maybe with a Bigsby, like the special SE run? S2 seems like a great place for some more "line exclusive" models.
    -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.

    Now you got me thinking...maybe the USA style f-holes would show up here if they do make it?

    If there's any hope in an S2, semi-hollow would be the way to go. A lot of labor and materials go into the Hollowbody models. I could see a semi-hollow mahogany body, beveled maple top, single f-hole. Other features could basically be an S2 version of the CU22. It would probably run more $$$ than the S2 CU24, though.

    if they'd go with flat-top instead of archtop, they could possible make it stay in the S2 24's price. I'm just guessing here, since the SE Semi-Hollow and the SE 24 are quite similar in price.
