    So I'm a newbie here. Used to frequent BAM years ago and owned a nice McRosie and Navarro. Sold them about 10 years ago and have been playing a Tyler and Les Paul since. Still have the Les Paul but got a good deal on my Tyler against a CU24 yesterday and loving it. Actually, I originally trader the Tyler against a Suhr Modern, but just didn't gel with it. Tried several Suhrs and PRSs over the course of an hour and fell for this one. Regular pattern neck and no upgrades. It's quite a plain top, no 10 here, but it has some mojo. Not as saturated purple in the flesh, much more muted Violet than the shops photo. It's nice and light, resonant, and just feels and sounds great. :D

    Looks more like this, but as you know, these things vary with the light....

    What’s your definition of a plain top? Lol

    Hehe. It's certainly not a quiet look.

    Awesome guitar! I have a violet CU24 piezo with a non-10 quilt top, and there's certainly nothing plain about it, or yours. Congrats and enjoy.

    I've always wanted a Santana, so probably a Yellow Santana Retro. And a Faded Whale Blue Tremonti. Not for a good while though! :D
