Hi Guys, This is my first post so please don't flame me. I live in Switzerland but come from the UK and have been playing for 35 years or so. I have a mix of 1 US CU22 and 3 CU24 models and I prefer a wide fat neck (haven't tried pattern). Over the last few years I picked up some SE Models from a dealer who went bust, including SE Santana and SE Bernie Marsden plus some SE SC. A month or two ago I started playing the SE Santana and Bernie Marsden and these guitars are awesome. I'm at the point where I prefer them (24.5 scale) over the US Core. I was thinking of flipping a CU24 and picking up a US SC245 but its 4-5 times the cost of the SE guitars that I love. I don't think I can justify it. I'm thinking that if they are good enough then just keep the SE and flip the US models. Of course the finish etc on the US models is better but the SE are also stunning. Does anybody else here actually prefer the feel of the SE over the core range?
