2014 PRS SE Zach Myers
Well, I got hit by a severe case of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) again after learning of the new PRS SE Zach Myers coming out.
Scale length and neck wise it is pretty much like my SE Santana at 24.5" scale, and a wide/fat neck.
I prefer the 25" scale length and a wide/thin pattern thin neck better, but this plays really nice.
Plus the neck has a satin finish on it which makes moving up and down the neck very easy, in fact it is very slick, I wish all necks were finished like this.
When I got my youngest son his 2012 SE Semi-Hollow back in September of 2012, I could not put it down.
The semi-hollow has a nice ring to it, and no feedback (unless you want it) when an amp is cranked up.
I had my dealer put on some vintage locking tuners as I wanted to keep the same look.
This is a departure for me since all of the other SEs I have bought I had the dealer put on the Planet Waves Autotrim locking tuners.
Had them put on a set of Ernie Ball Cobalts in 9-42 for me also, I run that gauge and brand on all of my guitars, they just feel right to me.
I also had them put on the Tonepro locking studs/inserts for two reasons:
1. Increased sustain, and it does sustain quite well.
2. String changing when I take them all off at once to clean the fret board the tail piece is locked down and will not fall off.
Had that happen to my '73 Les Paul decades ago.
The only other things I did was swap out the stock truss rod cover and put on the official PRS forum truss rod cover, and a set of Schaller Strap Locks which I run on all of my guitars.
I got to play it Thursday night (4-3) for the first time through one of my amps, and it sounds very nice.
This is a very nice guitar and they are selling like hotcakes, dealers allover are running out of stock as soon as they come in.
Here are some pictures bellow, they were taken with my new Canon T5i on the auto setting.
The last group shot picture was taken without a flash just a bit ago on landscape mode with a dark room, but the camera gathers in a lot of light.
I like the light natural color of the wood on the back too, just like my sons SE Semi-Hollow I got him back in 2012 for his birthday.
I also like how the light natural color of the sides blend with the darker color of the top wood.
