    Please hold your applause until the end::D

    FInally!:) Its here and I'm super happy!:D After a week of emails with Ish Guitars in Syracuse NY, a quick stop yesterday to confirm it existed, I am Officially the owner of an A55E in Black Gold. I traded an 2015 Ovation Applause, a 2018 Alvarez Cadiz and an Ibanez Sepele Open Pore, plus an equal amount of cash (from my loving wife) to acquire this wonderous instrument of tone. This is my third PRS SE. here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure:

    it was her way of saying thank you for all the stuff that I do for her that she doesn't normally acknowledge. plus she got a Christmas Bonus, and I didn't. So I guess in a way, I did, if you know what I mean.

    Paul and Team really went all out with the design and appointments on A50 and A55 guitars. Wood selection and stain colors are top notch. I have a friend who bought an A50 for his granddaughter from GC, it was stained Blue Matteo and was absolutely stunning.

    Aren’t they though.
    Lots of bling on this one.
    It’s hard to believe it’s an SE.

    That is absolutely gorgeous!!! Congrats!

    I have one of the A50E's and can absolutely agree that Paul and the team really knock it out of the park with the SE acoustics. Incredible looks, play-ability, fit, and finish for their price range, really. They punch WAY above their price point, without a doubt.

    Congrats, again, on yours! It's an absolute beauty, enjoy it!

    Are there some “ curved “ frets on that guitar or is it an illusion?

    Nice git.

    You should take it outside to take your pics that way we could really see the beauty of it.

    I believe that is an illusion of my terrible photographic skills
