I've had this guitar for around a month. Done a few rehearsals but had it's first gig this weekend. Just superb - it sounds and plays amazing. I wasn't wild about the pickups so it now has a set of Bare Knuckle Rebel Yells transplanted from another guitar. This is a match made in heaven. This, to me, is exactly what a guitar should sound like. Plenty of cut but no icepick and a low end that punches you in the gut. It's beautifully put together and it's SO easy to play. The neck is really comfortable and the weight is just right. I've never had locking tuners before - they make changing strings a doddle and the tuning stability is astonishing. I usually check my tuning between sets but I didn't bother on Saturday because I knew it hadn't moved. PRS guitars have gone up in price a lot in the UK. Andertons were knocking the S2 out cheap because apparently the metallic colours didn't sell well - mine is 'Frost Green' and I love it. I got this for the same price the Bernie re-issues are going for - £799. I still love my Bernie which is an incredible guitar and I feel lucky to have two really great PRSi. I can't begin to imagine what the core model singlecuts are like. Am I missing out ?
