    Sweet, that kind of pricing I can stretch to. Amazing value especially when they come with Hard case too.

    Did you see the SE locking tuners you can buy from them for $95?

    Edit: just saw the thread about them. Only been waiting 12 years for these.

    Really love both the HB models. I just ordered an HB Spruce, but I could definitely see this being a nice backup for seedier places.

    Also, IMHO, I actually prefer the look of the SE Starla to the S2 version. The split tones out of the bridge pickup sound very Tele-esque too. Lots to love out of this announcement!

    According to their Tweet - there's more coming, but we don't know when...

    I'm with @sergiodeblanc on used SE Starlas. I'm liking fatter necks these days, and the SE Mira will likely be skinny like the other SE 'Wide Thins'.

    There's absolutely no way I can pass on a hollowbody, unless I get struck by lightning.

    The hollowbody seems interesting. Just when I thought I had all the SEs that I wanted.

    I can't get it out of my [email protected]$$ head.

    HB-II, in Tri-Color Sunburst, with new SE Locking Tuners, Black Leather PRS Strap, and my Blue Chip TD35 pick...plugged into my MXR-loaded board.

    I think I just made the leap into manhood. I can feel new hairs growing in odd places. (Nose and ears, mainly.....but still!)

    There goes my plan for new pads and rotors on the truck. Bus pass, here I come!!!!!

    Pre-order is placed.

    She will be mine.

    Oh, yes. She will be mine.

    They come with hard cases? Woo-Hoo!

    My wife has approved — “You don’t have a hollowbody, do you?”

    There’s a Standard in my future. (But waiting to hear what’s new in S2-land)

    I think that's a good guess. I also wonder what will be the neck construction on those.
