I have been looking to buy a solid body guitar the past 2 weeks, this week I tried a few Gibson les Paul, had my mind set on it but after trying a few, my heart was not in it so I didn't get any. In fact, I didn't bond with the shape or the feel of the guitar at all.
i had been looking at PRS but knowing anything under £1000 are all Korean made (I want a US made), are way over my budget, even the S2 are not true US made as I understand it. I have to go all the way to the custom 22/24 to get a real US made copy.
i am in the UK so full fat PRS custom 22/24 are 25% more expensive than the states, even secondhand CE22 goes for around £1000 on eBay. Because it was outside my budget I forgot about it and started looking elsewhere.
However I have a chance to get a Custom 24 for £1250 but have no chance to see it in person before I buy. I could return it at my expense if I don't like it within 7 days (it's the law here). I guess I could order and call up and ask them to hold it for me to check before taking it away.
so would you chance it?
