    Try playing a 30th anniversary SE CU 24. The neck carve sits in between my wide fat and wide thin.

    I'm sure this offer is genuine, but since Mikegarveyblues lives in the UK apparently, exporting a guitar with rosewood will probably turn out to be a minor nightmare. If you guys do arrange something, keep us aware of the hoops you needed to jump through, it will undoubtedly be useful info.

    I may be misreading your post, but the SE is a 22, the core a 24. I wish they'd do a 22 fret core Santana, personally. Would love one wiht the new Charcoal Cherry Burst. My dealer has a McCarty with that color (wood library edition), and it is stunning.

    Massively appreciate the offer Bodia, but the majority of this purchase will be on finance with an SE sized deposit to keep the repayments low.

    I’ve seen a few used 22’s turn up in the shops in what looks like excellent condition so i’ll Have to see what happens there. Have a few other models on my ‘try list’. Some are PRS and some are, err...

    Wouldn’t mind seeing a pic of that C22 though... :)

    A little side note, I'm happy to see the 24-08 in the official catalog this year. I see them regularly on Sweetwater, along with other "secret menu" type items, like CU24 semi hollows, etc. I've been a big fan of that switching for a long time, have done it on 2 SE's via a pair of push-pulls, but the same idea, the ability to switch each pickup independently to give every possible combination. Nice!

    Right on! CITES crap would make it a pain in the a$$ to get across the pond.

    Here's a before. I never cared for the blue, but loved the guitar. Then, being the dork I am, I took a big chip out of the finish when removing the studs to put the MannMade2300 studs and bridge on.

    Like I said, I hated the color. So, refinished in Purple Hazel wrap, satin finish on the neck. Replace the Dragon IIs with a 59/09 bridge and 57/08 neck, and had mini toggles and a three way installed for the splits. Poor indoor pics are all I have because of the weather.

    I'm super disappointed we didn't get any new colours/finishes on the CE line. Also please PRS, have a rethink of the carve on the CE model... make the CE carve bigger and give the SE the CE carve size.

    If they make a core DGT 594, that could fit your needs

    Ive decided that in the new year, I'm getting shot of my Ibanez SIX27 for a PRS SE SVN. I took a look down at my headstocks on my rack today, and apart from my Spector Q4 Bass on it, they were all PRS and the Ibanez looked like something in Batman fancy dress at a Funeral similar to Del Boy & Rodney in Only Fools and Horses.

    With a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups, like a Full Shred and a Sentient in the neck maybe, pickups with some girth but still clean up well enough for when i need it to clean up. Id maybe put Schaller M6 Locking tuners in it as well.

    Then all i need is another something from the SE Line, for my Drop B/C Standard guitar, and I'm done guitar wise. Id say I'm 80% away from my ideal guitar rig. Would like a Singlecut SE Maple, something i can do a USA mod on the electronics with a 59/09 in the bridge and my McCarty bass in the neck.

    Highly recommend the Holcomb SE for the Drop C. Great guitar for the price - and no need to swap pups. I even put an Alpha/Omega set in my SE-7.

    I had to laugh at this - not sure our American Brothers know what a Del-Boy and Rodney are! :)

    Plus one on this!

    I've got three different PRSi that I'm watching that I am so tempted to buy, none of which I was really looking for in the first place! The last thing I need is a new model that would push me over the edge!
