This is a great guitar, even though I was unfamiliar with Paul Allender till I bought it, but I got it at a great price. This is my second PRS SE, the other being a Zach Myers. I’ve played Strats, Tele’s and Gibsons for 40 + years. I was really taken with the way this thing played and decided to sink a few $ in it to make it more me. Here’s what we did - Changed the pups (the original were not bad, but I wanted zebras and to try these) to Seymour Jazz and JB, with the triple shot pickup rings, which do the coil splitting. I upgraded the pots, switch, jack, and some wiring and added another volume pot because I like to blend the two pups. There was plenty of room for the new pot. Then I added gold barrel knobs, but also have a set of black ones if I want a change. I love it - I play this thing all the time. Once the strings are stretched it holds tune really well, even when giving the bar a work out. Of course this model has the bat inlays, so I bought a coffin case for it to sleep in.
