    Picked it up this morning and just got home with it. Spent a while playing thru my board and two amp set up (blues Jr and 68 custom Princeton reverb).
    Holy cow this is nice. I may have forever spoiled myself for my SE's....:rolleyes: The 57/08's are really nice

    Congrats on getting your hands on her! 57/08s go very well with a little F-style breakup!

    Nice score!!!! Don’t worry about losing your love for se’s, I have had a core custom 24 since 2014 and just got a Holcolmb 6 se and absolutely love both of them, congratulations.

    Thanks....the SE's are kind of like Lay's Potato chips.....can't have just one.
    I've got three (SE Custom 24, SE Custom 22 semi hollow, SE 245) that I've bought used and gotten them for a pretty decent price.
    They are relatively inexpensive (even after a pickup swap in two of the three) and good enough that I feel like I could easily play out with any/all of them (and not worry about getting one damaged/swiped).
    SE's are plenty good enough guitars, the Core model (with my limited time with it) is a whole 'nother level so far.
    Initial take is that I'm shocked at HOW good it is.

    It's good to be spoiled by a guitar!

    As nice as SEs can be, the Core models live in a different part of the space-time continuum.

    "That sounds awfully pretentious, Les."

    "Which would be 100% consistent with the rest of my pronouncements, right?"

    My wife just got back from a trip she'd been on for a couple weeks and I was showing her
    that Custom 24 I'd gotten a couple weeks ago.
    I noticed for the first time it's got a 57/08 in the neck and 59/09 in the bridge.
    If it didn't sound amazing, I'd probably be upset. :rolleyes:
