    OK, so the thought of a semi-hollow Cu24 really piqued my interest - although I must admit that there are too many other models i want first. But then I read that they will be all 10-tops, limited to 200. So the pricing will be not "a few hundred more than a regular Cu24" as one might hope, it will be in AP / near PS range, and I won't be able to wait for a year or two to maybe pick one up.

    Oh well, I guess I will just enjoy reading the NGD postings you guys make and I will drool over the photos. Nice looking guitar!

    To echo some others, any thoughts of me being "somewhat done" or "I think I will just focus on my playing without thinking about gear" just went to pot.

    Just an FYI, my Rep has told me there are both 10 tops and NON 10s in this Run...so I am sure, many dealers like myself are ordering both...

    Nothing against them - I love my semi-hollow 22, but I'm not much a 24 fret guy any more. I'm more tempted by the Experience semi-hollow 408's...

    I feel like the LTDness of these models makes the cost a little higher than if it were a standard core model so it bums me out that they are doing small batches. At the same token, if a LTD run is what allows them to test the waters for more models, so be it.

    Yeah, that last small-run limited I jumped on was the Signature Limited...no regrets on that move, it's still my favorite guitar, but we see how "limited" that ultimately turned out to be

    Same here (excuse semi-hollow 24 thread derail) on the Siggy Ltd, but they were bred from the PS Siggy Ltd run, and gave birth to the Std and Maple Top core 408's... still prefer the toggle of the Ltd's versus the slider on the core models...

    PRS really seems to hit it sonically (as well as aesthetically!) with their semi hollow designs. They seem to do everything better IMO. My Walnut semi hollow LTD is unbelievable, and the CU 22 semi hollows were killer as well. Paul Reed Smiths eyes lit up when he played my Artist 3 semi hollow trem, and said they should offer them again. I really hope they do. Magical guitars. If I were a 24 fret fan, I would be all over one of these. At the very least they could offer a semi hollow option on the APs with an upcharge. They sound so darn good!!!!
