    New Member, First PRS SE Custom 24-08

    The faded blue burst looks great! How do you like the feel of the neck, and the ranges of tones the 24-08 offers?

    NGD: SW SE Custom 24-08

    It shouldn't have been a surprise, but I wasn't expecting to be so impressed by this SE model. It's truly an outstanding instrument.

    Beautiful finishes, comfortable contours, necks that play like butter, and awesome tones = addiction! :cool:

    Eye candy appeal of the finish aside, I just can't stop playing this guitar. You're gonna love it when it arrives!

    NGD: SW SE Custom 24-08

    What if everyone who purchased a new guitar told the world about it? How many new posts would this generate here and in other forums? The upside would be a boat load of images to review which is always enjoyable for me. The Sweetwater exclusive SE Custom 24-08 arrived yesterday. The design of...

    Thoughts on the SE Paul's Guitar

    This instrument is on my list of options for later this year, currently waiting delivery of the SW SE Custom 24-08. The lack of availability of certain makes and models of guitars in local brick and mortar establishments has been an issue for me in my area. I purchased an S2 594 solely based...

    The lighter touch

    Hello, You homework conclusions - Techniques/Methods - are spot on. The short story is that application of these new methods will rewire your brain and calibrate your muscle memory. Regarding: 2. I have tried to consciously reduce my grip when I feel Mr. Ham Fist squeezing the life out of the...

    I am done selling on Reverb: PRS Tremonti MT-15 saga

    I'll add my echo of concern for your situation. My Reverb "store" with 30+ sales is highly rated. It began as a way to declutter my home studio. Later, I found myself buying new gear and guitars and then flipping them months later when it became clear that the shiney new thing was no longer...

    Neck profile preference (speaking of rabbit holes...)

    The pattern vintage neck on my S2 594 is home! Deciding that I want a second PRS but with a tremolo bridge has involved much reading and looking at charts in a vacuum. Feature wise, the SE custom 24-08 was at the top of the list but the wide thin neck was a concern, A couple of days ago, I...

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    S2 594 DC MC SB The dark cherry burst was gourgeous. While considering the options for its replacement I realized that I wasn't attached to a SC but rather the tone. In the listening comparison above there wasn't much if any discernible difference in tone between the SC and DC, (ok, 5% more...

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    My new order should be here in a few days. I specifically asked the SW team to check the pickup selector switch before shipping. Of course images will be posted.

    Now that I know that this is a thing, no problem, DeOxit is on the shelf just in case.

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    Sweetwater is my preferred online seller for new guitars, with three purchases to date. All were playable right out of the box, no hiccups! At the moment they have a S2 dark cherry DC 594 which looks great. But there's nothing like a Mccarty burst in my current lineup. They're on back order at...

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    What I've seen of CME on line - videos and images, it is indeed an impressive looking place. And customer service did respect my request without any push back. When I do order another PRS, I'll ask my seller to checkout the PU selector switch before shipping. In the meantime, I'm leaning toward...

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    If this were a local purchase, absolutely I'd be happy to have the store tech fix so that I can take it home. I'm on a wait list at the online seller I usually deal with so I'm ok with that.

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    I purchased this from CME. DeOxit is my shelf and I do mess around with and modify older guitars, make nuts with StewMac tools and such. But I refuse to mess around with a brand new and in terms of the size of my pockets, expensive guitar. There was none of the scratchy sounds from dirty...

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    Crappy wiring sounds right. The seller wanted to pay to have a local tech fix it. I suppose that's a reasonable option but I did not accept it. At least, I now have hands-on experience and direct visual inspection to fully understand the otherwise high build quality. To be continued...

    S2 Mccarty SC vs Thinline- A hill of beans difference?

    Here it is.It's a stunning piece of work. For being a thicker body with a fat neck, it felt light to me. The fat neck is perfect!!! Very comfortable in my smallish hand. Sad to say but I'm returning it. How in the hell does a brand new high quality American-made guitar purchased from an...

    This has to be the best and most comprehensive comparison of the S2 594 line up. Thanks.
