    Thank you - I would so like to add one but as I said, I am in no position to add one right now. The only guitar I could possibly live without would be my 509 as that could be replaced by the MEv but even if I were to trade that, I wouldn't be in a position to buy and I don't want to lose my other guitars to try and raise the funds.

    I’m pretty sure there is no duty. Not to trivialize HST and exchange.

    I had tickets to attend Experience this year and had planned to pick up whatever the year's Experience guitar happened to be...missed out on the trip, but I pulled the trigger on the guitar anyway. :) I found a dealer that had one in charcoal with a purple burst wrap. FWIW the same dealer has another with a black burst and black back/neck listed on Reverb. I have no idea why they have the only two non-charcoal/river blue models that I've seen listed today, but I like the personality that it has.

    edit: looks like image links dont work, so I'll just put the direct link here

    ...and now the wait begins.

    I agree with the comment about wishing that they had rosewood necks...if I were a wise man I would sell my Custom 24 with a rosewood neck since this should check most of the same boxes, but it will be hard to part with how that guitar feels.

    I saw that one. It is one of the better looking ones. Congratulations!

    The PS versions that I have seen have looked amazing. I really like the Slate and Frostbite Glow that are listed on Reverb, so maybe a simple ring swap would make these River Blue and Charcoal ME-Vs more appealing to me.

    I prefer the white/ivory rings. I'm selling my P22, customized Dustie Waring and my CE24SH to fund a River Blue....hopefully, lol.

    Well I’ve just pulled the trigger on a Charcoal one .... now I just have to wait a week or so for it to come in to the dealership and then shipped to me in Australia ....! It’s going to be a long wait.

    Yeah, the charcoal ones really grabbed my attention as well for some reason. Maybe it's the natural backs, not sure.

    So...

    Mine arrives on Friday.

    :D

    Me too, but as a studio guy the allure of all those tones outweighs the awesomeness of a stage guitar. The only thing keeping the ME5 from being my dream guitar is the lack of a piezo system.

    Maybe PTC can add one??

    Yea I think if it had a crack wood neck I just might go for it. Mostly cause with all the tonal options, I would hope it could unseat a couple of my top PRSi - and I just think my “ultimate” PRS would have a RW neck. Just a personal preference. Plus it’s a ME, it really goes without saying...

    Hopefully it will make its way to a Core model and then there will be some WL runs.

    Congrats to everyone in this thread going for such an amazing guitar - perhaps the pinnacle of non- PS PRS to date (and that’s saying something). Can’t wait to hear your tone reports!

    The rest of us will probably feel really dumb in a couple months when we realize we could have essentially had a private stock instrument for half the price ;)
