    I’m a big fan of poplar burl. I have an Ibanez with this top, and have a Prestige coming. I think I saw where PS has some now, too.

    Bangin’!

    I was like; “What SE could possibly have Steve’s name in it?”

    Then I saw it and was like; “Duh.”

    It sounds good Paul. I thought I might change the pups, but I actually like these so far (for the 5 minutes I’ve had it plugged in). Plays nicely, too.

    Serge, it’s not my first SE. I have a gold top SC and this ZM:

    That’s pretty cool.
    Turns out there might have been a use for those giant poplar trees around my old house....other than for bears to hide from my dog.

    Sweet axe!

    Y'know right now I can't not think of the time when the SE Customs were first getting introduced and there was so much moaning that PRS was wrecking everything because the SE's were too nice. "OMG IF THEY HAVE BIRDS IT'LL DESTROY THE VALUE OF MY GUITARZ..!.!.!!!.!"

    Guess what? It's all worked out really well!
