I have no experience with an electric. I have an acoustic I bought 35 years ago that sat for 30 years and I started playing again 18 months ago. I never was "Good" and still am not. The acoustic strings are 10's and the action is low. It plays great and holds a tune really well. Since I'm an old fool that can't really play, I bought the Double Cut Standard SE 24. I don't really know what's normal for an electric. I've found that I'm a bit heavy handed for this guitar and I'm working on that. I'm not sure of exact cause. The PRS is strung with 9's and I don't know if the heavy hand is caused by the 9's, or that it's an electric, or a combination of the two and exacerbated by my proficiency. The PRS doesn't stay in tune compared to my acoustic. I can play my acoustic for an hour and find a string or two barely flat. On this electric I can play for 10 minutes and find a string or 2 or 3 flat. I did stretch the strings and like any new toy, I've spent quite a bit of time playing. Is this caused by me, a new guitar, a bridge with a trem, factory strings, tuning machines or the fact that it's low end guitar? I haven't even used the tremolo and probably never will.
