    These look and sound great to me. I mostly play electric but I’m getting one of these. I haven’t seen any of the SE acoustics but I’m happy with the quality of the SE electrics no matter where they are made. Im sure the acoustics don’t disappoint. I’m excited to get my hands on one of these

    They do not disappoint. I have three different SE acoustics, all with electronics, all with different voices. I've been very happy with all three, but I'm afraid I won't be able to say that for much longer.

    It's gonna be four.

    Got a shipping email, and some pics, from Sweetwater this morning. Maybe tomorrow, or maybe Tuesday, depending on FedEx.

    Of course, I can't get the pics to upload to Imgur :mad:

    Well, as advertised, it comes out of the bag in tune. Just a very nice mid-focused guitar. I didn’t have a pick handy but strumming really brought a surprising amount of volume. Seems like a winner!

    Glad to hear. My local guitar shop has one on order. I’m eager to check it out and probably take it home

    I’m afraid to visit my local shop. They are sneaky enough to also get an African Blackwood/Redwood Tonare at the same time.

    Is that not classed as a “two-fer”?!

    I’m sure that’s allowed.;)

    It most definitely is.
    That’s the problem.

    The two-fer isn’t the real problem. It that sudden drop in the bank account that is the problem.

    I do. It's just for now, and for the near future, the GAS fund was depleted on the new Santana. :( Gonna be this fall probably

    These guys look pretty dang cool! Could anyone that has one within arm's reach give the total length from top of headstock to the bottom as well as the diameter of the soundhole? Curious how these stack up in size compared to a Little Martin and also what external pickups would fit them. I travel a lot and the Martin fits great in the overhead bins - wondering if this new kid in town might bump it out of the travel rotation. :)

    Thanks!

    Thanks! Not a whole lot bigger (Little Martin is 34", gig bag 37", sound hole 3 1/4"), so the PRS shouldn't cause too much of a problem for the bins. Could definitely have one of these in my sights! Congrats on getting yours - sounds like you'll be busy for a good bit! :)
