    Hello from Illinois. I don't own a PRS yet, but have one on order. I was mediocre in the 70's and severely cut my left index finger which brought my playing to a halt. After 2 surgeries it was never the same. I retired a few years ago and after a 30 year hiatus, got my acoustic out of the closet 18 months ago. I should have done this years ago as the functionality of my finger has greatly improved.
    I've never owned an electric and didn't want to sink a bunch of money into one. I did some research and settled in on the 2018 Standard SE 24. I placed an order 12-1-17 and am impatiently awaiting delivery. It seems no one has them in stock and I can't get a date when they will be shipping.
    Hope I live long enough to see the thing.

    Welcome aboard! I'm new too but I've learned a lot from poking around on the forum here. Hey man...you'd better live long enough to at least learn a few songs on your new PRS... then at least you would die happy!

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Registered in 2014, I've been away since but returning stronger for 2018. On Boxing Day, I bought a beautiful Paul Reed Smith SE Standard Santana, my first PRS guitar and I love it so far.

    Wish you all a Happy New Year,

    Michelinho

    Welcome Michelinho! From where do you hail? Boxing day would be Canada perhaps? Would love to see a pic of that Santana!

    You are right, from Canada. I don't have any pictures yet or hosting site but It will be taken care of in the near future. I will not post a link of an external site but pictures are readily available with a simple search. I thought the guitar was a 2017 but the signed headstock means it is a 2018. GREAT! :)
    I bought the Paul Reed Smith from Sam Ash on the 25th which is Boxing Day in Canada but with good rebates in the US and since my son-in-law lives in New Jersey, I had it shipped there so free shipping above the price cut. It is listed at $539, which I thought it was too much as the 2017 sells everywhere for $429/$439. So I got on a chat with a fellow at Sam's and got a deal I simply could not refuse.

    Now, I am the proud owner of a (my first) Paul Reed Smith guitar and loving it. Best out of the box setup I've seen so far.

    Take care,

    Michelinho
