    Have CE24 but looking for a Core: CU24 or 594?

    Haha it's a difficult first world dilemma for many of us. Actually I thought about getting CU24 + Les Paul Standard because it won't cost as much as CU24 + 594. I think 594 is trying to emulate the true vintage LP sound which is probably very rare and hard to find. Typically when people compare...

    Have CE24 but looking for a Core: CU24 or 594?

    I think the CE handles gain really well (surprisingly despite it's semi-hollow) however I haven't blasted it with extreme loud settings. This is why it got me the PRS *bug*, like I can't wait to get more. Also changing amp/pedal/software effects shouldn't be a problem to me. I usually setup...

    Have CE24 but looking for a Core: CU24 or 594?

    I got my first taste of PRS from a CE24 Semi-hollow. The quality is superb, I can't wait to get my hands on PRS's flagship Core line. Initially I had my eyes set on CU24 but I went to a guitar store and played a McCarty 594. It was equally mind-blowingly good. I thought I liked Pattern Thin...

    Is 35th Anniversary Custom 24 a limited edition and should I buy it asap?

    CU24 has tight fret spacing. Would CU22 solve the my problem?

    Thank you everyone for sharing your valuable experience with me. Looks like CU22 isn't going to help much. It seems to me that PRS discontinued 513 and Tremonti Baritone. But I can find a 509! It is a very attractive option. Also thanks for the suggesting the sitting posture, I have to try it...

    CU24 has tight fret spacing. Would CU22 solve the my problem?

    Dear PRS owners, I have a CE24 with pattern thin neck and I love it. I am planning to get a CU24. However, I am noticing a slight discomfort when I am sitting down with CE24 and accessing the higher frets 20+. When I am standing, my left hand can be angled perfectly perpendicular to the neck...
