    Find one you really like and send it to PTC for finish and pup tweaks.

    Just keep searching for Standards. There is a new S2 series of standards, but they are gloss and have pickguards.

    I really love the PRS satin finish. That SC standard on Reverb is so cool! I bet it rips with the P-90s.

    There are at least a couple on eBay right now with satin finish, HBs, and trem, but not in that color. One close to that Reverb price, the other one a bit higher. Search for "PRS Standard".

    What would this set me back? Seriously, I have no clue - but I would NOT think that it would be cost effective...

    Yup. I'll just have to keep searching & be ready with cash... I'm not completely sold on the S2 line yet. They seem nice, but not nice enough that I'd choose one over a used USA-PRS.

    But, it's more of a flat finish right? Or can you FEEL the wood grain like on this one I posted?

    I have no idea. They're all just images on a screen to me right now, no idea what feels like what.

    It is more of a satin finish. They feel and play great! And yes you can feel the grain

    The S2 line is USA made in the same Maryland factory as the "USA"-PRS. The "S" stands for Stevensville (Maryland).

    PRS differentiates between them by calling the original line the "Core" line.

    I only point this out to avoid confusion for readers that are new to PRS and not as a criticism.

    Just keep your eye out, they pop up from time to time - just be ready. They are very cool guitars. I had a charcoal SC.

    Oh love that 53/10 limited with the quilt, what a nice guitar. Every one of those I've seen had great tops.

    That burst 22 is mighty sweet & I've already been by your site looking at it.... but, I'm really more interested in finding a guitar that lets the grain "feel" through a bit more, like these (and of course I want it in a 22 fret with tremolo):
