    Newest SE custom 24's

    I was pretty intrigued by the announcement of the latest enhancements (coil split, beveled edge, blade switch) on the newest model of the SE CU24. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any to check out. Any idea where they might be available and how soon they should be in Maryland dealers?

    I read somewhere that July was the release date. Can't remember where that was and it doesn't mean they won't pop up somewhere sooner.

    Re: Newest SE custom 24's

    I was hoping that these were coming out a little sooner...I am intrigued by the coil tap and new shape...

    Anyone else less than impressed with the two color choices? The tobacco burst looks more appropriate on a more "vintage" looking instrument I think...will have to see the blue in person, but I gravitate toward the red/yellow/natural end.

    Also, have they confirmed that these are the same pups as in the older models? I have a 2010 SE CU24 (yellow quilt) that I was thinking of swapping the pups for something more "vintage" (there's that word again( & installing a push-pull coil tap on tone. Might be easier to just wait for the new ones...

    I'd like to see some opaque color options, antique white, maybe even a gold top. I think the pickups are new SE pickups but I'm not sure about that.

    I don't mind the vintage burst so much, and I think the blue is awesome with the birds, but I can see where you guys are coming from too. At least they got rid of the orange, I hated that color...
    I could go for the purple burst like on the Allender, or a black flame top, and if they put the Eriza Verde on I would camp out at the store until one came in! I don't see that one happening, but I see a lot of special color runs of different SE's on ebay lately. Anyone know why so many of them tend to be overseas (UK, etc) and not available here?
    -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.

    I hear ya on that purple burst. There's an SE245 in a quilted purple burst in the UK that makes me drool.
