Hey all, This is my first post here! Just a little background to help with my question. I bought my first Squire at age 21. I played it for a year, sold it, and bought a brand new 1997 American Strat. After about six months, life happened (kids, wife, grad school, and no time for guitar). My Strat followed me around the country as a cool decoration in my living rooms over the next 20 years and I literally played it twice over that time span. About three months ago, I just picked it up and fell in love with the guitar again. I have been playing everyday for at least 3-4 hours and I am now ready to buy a second guitar. I live in the rural Pacific NW and my closest real guitar shop is several hours away. A few weeks ago, I made the trip, played a ton of guitars, and the PRS blew me away. So on to my questions? I loved the look, feel, and options of the S2 Custom. I think I’m set on a S2 Custom 22 as I want something that can get me warmer tones than my Strat can achieve. However, it seems like all the buzz on the internet is about PRS’s 24’s. Other than the obvious difference in the location of the neck pickup and the extra two frets (which I’ll likely never play), am I missing something that I’ll regret not getting the S2 custom 24 later? I’m having a pretty hard time finding the differences between the 2017 and 2018 S2 Customs online. Has alot changed? Should I wait to get a 2018 that wont be available for a few months or get a 2017 now? Lastly, it sounds like PRS has some great quality control and is pretty much set up right out of the box. Is it worth it to find my closest dealer that has the guitar I want or has anyone had an experience with ordering online from Sweetwater or Musicians Friend?
