    To my fellow PRS enthusiasts, I've just got home after placing an order for my first PRS guitar, I literally can't wait for this thing to arrive.

    I've gone for the S2 35th Anniversary in 'whale blue'

    Just wanted to share my excitement and see if anyone is lucky enough to already have one of these, and see what they thought of them. Also I played an SE in whale blue, and a normal S2 in whale blue to see how i liked the neck profiles etc, and found the color difference to be quite large. I've not seen the anniversary one in the flesh, so if anyone has a whale blue version, I'd really appreciate some photos to see how these look in normal everyday life.

    Congrats and welcome to the forum. The waiting is the hardest part. No, saving up the cash is actually the hardest part!

    Great choice! The best color in an incredibly good guitar for gigs. I’ve always been thrilled by how each piece of wood takes stain differently, and every single guitar looks different even though they may have the same color name. It’s great that we all have unique axes to treasure.

    I have the plain old S2 Cu24 and it is fantastic, so I'm sure you will like yours with the extras it has. Can't wait to see pics.

    Welcome and Congrats... whale blue is a super colour but it looks different depending on the lighting. It can look very dark in dim light or it can pop in bright light. Can't wait to see pics.. in the meantime here's my CuRo22 in whale blue (artist quilt top)

    and in the brighter light

    On the 35th Anniversary S2 Custom 24, are the pickups regular 85/15s or TCI?

    Whale Blue does tend to vary a lot from guitar to guitar from what I've, and in different lighting conditions I find, even. I've noticed mine photographs a little different with a flash than without-

    I love three color though, it's one I remember from when I was just a kid in the 90s with no money who could only drool over the PRS catalogs.
