Little background, I was pretty much exclusively a Strat/Tele player for about 15 years before recently switching to shorter scale Humbucker guitars over the last couple of years. I’ve been playing a PRS Chris Henderson model and it’s a fine fine guitar, but even after all this time my speed and accuracy improve whenever I switch back to my bolt on guitars. I do love the easier bending feel of the flatter radius and shorter scale of Gibson and PRS guitars though. I also love the driven tones of Humbuckers and have learned to dial in a great clean tone with them. My ideal guitar would have a mahogany maple topped body with two humbuckers and with a satin-y bolt on neck with a shorter scale than Fender. I also prefer a thin neck to a fat one. Sounds exactly like a CE24 right? So what’s holding me back? Honestly I’m a little concerned about the corner cutting - the reduced carve, the Korean made hardware etc. I’m concerned coming from I guess what would be considered a “Core” instrument it will feel like a step down even though specs wise it’s exactly what I’m looking for. Can I get some feedback from the community? Also, people frequently mention original CE’s are available on the cheap, I’ve been stalking Reverb for months and that is simply no longer the case. At least if you want one in decent condition. So that’s not really an option for me.
