    Yep... honestly, the SE line was getting a little "stale" IMO. Lots of W/T maple necks and trems, and while there is certainly a place for that in the PRS lineup, it doesn't really represent the corresponding mix of ingredients in the USA line. Personally, I want W/F hog necks, all day long, and stoptails more, too. So I'm happy to see some things going that way.

    I hope they go to the 2 piece on the SE245 soon, or come out with something else that has it, in addition to the Starla.

    I would be very into that. I'm gonna need to break down and get a bass in the future, and I like the SE Kestrel over the Kingfisher, but would likely take an S2 over either if they were priced in the range of the S2 Standards. But, even beyond basses, I'm all for adding more to the S2 line, especially diversifying the tones available via different guitars. I have 3 now, they're hard working and great quality, without being very expensive. One could build quite an arsenal of capabilities on a moderate budget with just S2's.

    Just now finally got a chance to reply to this thread... looking forward to checking out the Hollowbody Standard. That's right up my alley.

    Oh man, didn't even think about the Starla have a 2 piece bridge. No reason why they couldn't do that on a traditional SC platform

    The COO told me that the hollow bodies are made in the same factory in Dailan, China that the acoustics are made in. PRS has been very happy with the quality so far.

    I ordered an HB II. I was told November, I was hoping early November. Who gave you the ETA?

    Sweetwater — That was the ETA *before* I placed the order. I got an email a couple of hours ago stating the ETA is now Nov 20.

    The website says the One has dots, but they look like moons to me!

    Honestly, I'm baffled as to why they don't bring back the SE One as a regular model. I think they were pretty much universally loved. Would kill to have one in vintage cherry.

    At the risk of violating rules, we’re not separate yet!

    And that is all I will say on the matter!

    Yeah, I've never understood the reason for doing whole exclusive models. I get doing exclusive finishes or variations on existing models, but not this. But what do I know :p

    Does it have anything to do with what the Euro dealers believe they can sell?

    I don’t know, just a thought.

    I might have to import One. Or hope it depresses the currently high used market on Reverb.
