    What model besides the John Myers model, has a maple fretboard? I remember seeing a few SE models from Europe, but never in the states.

    Yeah, there were some SE runs for Europe. I don't think in the states. The new Fiore has a maple board. The NF3 had a maple board and the DC-3. Otherwise, lots of Wood Library models.

    As Bodia said, the NF3 and DC-3 had them as well as the Brent Mason and 305 models. Sweetwater did a run of Roasted Maple SE's not too long ago, as well.

    Yup...there are a number of wood library runs out there with Maple Fretboards; I feel like I've seen just about every model with them. I picked up one a WL example / one such model a while back; McCarty 594, Swamp Ash back & full Maple Neck.

    Let me clarify, I was thinking of budget friendly like s2 or SE. I wish I has the $$$$ for wood library.

    Came here to post this because I've been looking lately. They come in a few different finishes. Just do some searches on Reverb, Ebay, etc.

    Seems to be the most accessible way to get a PRS (SE) with a maple fretboard for under $1000.

    It seems to be an odd thing that there aren't more maple fretboards in the PRS/SE line. But then again, Paul has thought through this stuff and has his reasons for producing what he produces. It'll be interesting to see if/how the company pivots once he's gone with regards to customer desires like more maple fretboards.

    If you can find a Brent Mason with a maple board you will not have to pay wood library prices and will be getting an awesome tone machine !!

    Man o man played me a DW today... I really dig that guitar but not a fan of the price right now. I'll continue to enjoy my SE floyd 30th with DW. That maple.board was awesome though!

    The only SE I can think of off the top of my head with maple is the limited run roasted. They pop up. For a while I was after one bad...
