    Oh, I am quite happy with what I am about to receive, it just isn't quite as wild as some of the tops out there! But yeah, I really like the symmetry on this specimen (that is very important to me for something "bookmatched", though I really like one piece quilted maple tops on some PRSi that are wildly asymmetrical!)

    It has a certain elegance about it, with (what looks like) a single nail hole just left of bottom center to remind you of the provenance.

    And it arrives tomorrow! aaaaah!

    I will mention that this gig bag appears to be a revised version of my other two SE gig bags, but there's improved headstock protection. But, I, too have hauled all of my guitars (sorry PRS, even my G and F guitars) to every sleezy bar in Indiana and they've all come back alive. The bags, however, do have a bit of a funk to them now.

    Think of the funk as infusion for better renditions of "Funky Town".

    The headstock protection is fantastic!

    Heads Up... There's a Vela is now listed on Reverb. If you were kicking yourself for "missing the boat" now's your chance!!! They have a couple of CE24's listed too...

    I noticed this as well. It's even different from an earlier S2 bag I got with a prior guitar. I was confused at first but I dig it.

    As far as my Vela is concerned.....IT'S A KEEPER!

    Hey, if you're going to play the funk you gotta "give me the One" as James would say.

    I'll second that emotion!

    Even a little 1UP... Reclaimed Limited S2 One. And make it solid.
