    So I've found a set of PRS SE 85/15's on ebay and I'm considering having a dabble.

    I'm looking for advice and any experience that forum members may have used them.

    I know that the USA versions don't come up for sale often, so I thought they may give me an idea of the real deal.

    I haven't played the USA ones but have been pretty happy with the ones in my SE baritone.

    If they're affordable, why not? If you do, let us know what you think!

    They went before I really had a chance to do some research.

    Having seen the SE CU24 vs US CU 24, I think it’s US pups all the way.

    Yeah, do your research now. That'll likely happen again if they come up again.

    I watched the comparison video of the CU24 and SE24. I think I prefer the US tone.

    However, the US are like hens teeth, so maybe I’ll try a set of SE 85/15s as there is another set on eBay (UK).

    I was just wondering if anyone had experience of both and any pros/cons?

    Thanks.
