    Hi all,

    we know that the ME1 is one of the most sought after PRS model, but I would like to know which is the most collectible version among the single or the double cuts?
    About the sound I think they are the same.

    I think they are both highly collectible and will get more so. Supply and demand for BRW. I have both, like both, but prefer the SC.

    I don't put much stock in collectible.
    I feel the double cut is more PRS tradition.

    I would go DC, as that was the "original" ME.
    BTW, of all the PRSi I have cycled through since the mid-late 90s, my charcoal ME1 is the one that I am sad I let go. I don't even remember what I was thinking. Maybe it was the RP pickups (which is odd as I changed pickups in almost all of my other guitars:)
    (The other PRS I regret selling was not a "special" guitar--it was a plain ol late 90s McCarty (in McCarty burst w/nice mineral streaks, but non 10 top) that I put DGT pickups in. At the time I thought it was the most replicable PRS I had. It wasn't:)

    Based on a sample population of over 100 members (of BaM) who had one, roughly 1 on 5 original ME's is an SC.

    ME1 SC doesn’t look right where they positioned the pup toggle switch. Looks like an amateur designed it.
