There’s a fine line between rabies and nirvana, so I’d say both are correct my dear Sir!
I own two very nice SE CU24s, and a satin S2 Standard 24. You're right, I don't play the S2 nearly as much as the CU24s. But it is the guitar I show off most often, because everybody who touches it falls in love with it.
Well done! Welcome to the club.
S2 guitars have reset my expectations of value-per-dollar guitars. The only non-S2 guitar that has met or exceeded that expectation is the SE Hollowbody Standard (so you might want to keep one of those on your to-buy list too)
Hey, all the best, hope you get back at it full swing soon. Love that Vela, kind of you to loan it to your pal
sold 73 guitars, that deserves a re-post.
Used older Core or an Older CE can be had for 1000 to 1500 depending
Beautiful guitar. I may be misremembering, but it doesn't seem like you see a lot of Vela's here on the forum. I'm actually ashamed to admit I've never played one, but I really dig the color of yours.
I actually saw a core singlecut for $800 on a GC used listing. It was one of the most beat up guitars I've ever seen.
I had a rare guitar day yesterday were I went to play but not really looking for anything specific. I played a SE 35th Cu24, Its not the first time but the last few times I was looking to buy a core or CE and honestly didn't give it much of a chance. Man, the 35th is super sweet! Probably the best stock SE I've played. A really nice playing, sounding, and looking guitar for a cap of $1k. If that was my budget max it would be hard to beat new.
SEs have been a hit or miss in quality. I don't care how great a guitar looks if the fretwork sucks.
I think that at the end of the day, I'd prefer an excellent condition S2, something I could kick back with, put my feet up on the footstool and unwind with. If it were a workhorse guitar I were pursuing, it would be an excellent used core model. Yet the poll limits us to $1K, so I'd favor a used S2 to an SE, unless it were a 35th anniversary.
can't go wrong with a nice satin vela! Got one used from dave's guitar a few years ago and it's a guitar i'll never part with
