    Good evening. I will be receiving my first PRS in a couple days. I traded a guitar in yesterday at Guitar Center for a PRS Soarpbar II. Someone messed it up, so , I returned it. Ordered another one from another GC and am waiting to get it. So, I guess this is a pre-NGD.

    I traded a 2011 humbucker Les Paul Junior. I only paid $350 for it a while ago. I liked it, but, I like them with P90s. This white SE Soapbar II came up on GC website. It looked nice, but, when I got it home it had problems. I pulled the back cover and the wiring was cobbed up. I usually mod my guitars, but, I had just traded a $500 Gibson for a $300 PRS. Should be a functioning guitar, Right? I have a Red one coming from another GC. Hope I like it. Always wanted to try a PRS. Do you know the construction on these? Just doesn't feel heavy enough for mahogany to me. I love slab body guitars with P90s.
