but after spending all weekend on the forum, I'm trying to work out how to afford a USA model
The problem is I have this lovely 1990 Ibanez 540S, which is just a beautiful guitar which I've played for 15 years, but would rather a dual humbucker guitar with gobs of sustain, hence my looking at PRS'. Now I will need to sell the Ibanez to finance the PRS, but I'm just not falling for the finishes on the SE's that offer a fixed bridge. I don't want to go from something I love the look of, to something that sounds great but just doesn't offer the zing of being a beautiful instrument to own too. Such a pity those UK quilted tops aren't available in Aus!
Anyway, just sharing my pain.
