I'm finding myself not really bonding with my CE-24, which I bought used. I don't exactly know what it is. Maybe it is just such a little shallow thing as it being used and I have never really felt it was MINE. Also, I never really connected with especially the HFS treble pickup. Either way, I'm sure someone else will enjoy it more, and I have decided that I should sell it and get a factory-fresh one.
The only "productive" thing I use my guitars for is songwriting/recording in my home studio, apart from jamming and playing for my own enjoyment. I have a Les Paul Studio 50s tribute with humbuckers, which I am pretty happy with. Seeing as I already have that particular sound covered, I want something a bit different; something that can complement the Les Paul in a recording, but I would also like to have more tonal options, like good single-coil sounds.
I play mostly riff-oriented rock stuff; probably not classic, but not particularly modern either, I don't think (I really have no idea what I'm doing ;-)). I would like to be able to play some nice blues as well, and be able to get good jazz and country tones as well. And harder rock to heavy metal. Boy, I'm not asking a lot, am I... There's probably even a couple of other genres I forget at this time......
I know I should go to the store and try out all the PRS guitars I can lay my hands on. Already did that. There are none. Apparently, Denmark is a black spot on the PRS map... So I have to order over the internet. Thomann has a great return policy (30 days money back guarantee), so that's what I'll do. However, I still have to pay postage for a return, and I would rather just get the right one at the start ;-)
This is were you guys come in :-)
I have been looking at the 408 for a start, but recently the Studio has also caught my eye.
Many people seem to think that the bridge pup in the Studio is mismatched, and don't like the look of the covered pup along with the uncovered ones. Neither of these "issues" concern me much, as that pup can be changed etc. if need be.
Can any of you guys help me out and give me some direction and input? It would be greatly appreciated. Please ask if anything is unclear.
As a thank you for reading, here is a pic of my CE24.
It now strikes me that my first and only previous post here was to show off this same guitar. What a lousy track record I have here.....
Greetings from Denmark
