    Vela. Want. Must have...if I can afford it.

    CE also looks tempting.

    This was mentioned Saturday, but we were sworn to secrecy.

    Gotta put a note in to my pusher man...

    Jeeeeeeeez, I'm not much for maple necks, but semi hollow body might change the game...

    According to the Spec pages for each, both guitars have mahogany necks:

    http://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/s2/reclaimed_limited_s2_vela_semi_hollow

    http://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/electrics/bolton/reclaimed_limited_ce_24_semi_hollow

    Presumably for the CE the hog is better match to the reclaimed woods.

    Or it is just typo and the CE will still have a maple neck.

    And I just put in a pre-order with my Sweetwater guy. Due in late-May, according to their system. Nice price, too, IMHO.

    The pics on the spec page sure look like maple.

    Scratch that - Shawn types faster.

    I'm sure there are a bunch of us that are wondering what the pricing is.

    We could at least publish the street price right?

    New prices are a No No on the forum. Send me a PM and I can give the price for the Vela. I didn't ask about the CE.

    You know what is weird / serendipitous? I ordered a new-style piezo battery assembly from the PRS Accessories Store to "modernize" my Spruce HB last week, and I threw in one of the guitar Christmas ornaments they were clearing out.

    So I showed my wife just the other day that I had bought a "new PRS guitar", a 6" PRS Vela, and we both had a good laugh.

    I now need to find ornaments for several other models...

    I'd rather have the 5 way blade and no push/pull tone. That's just my take.
