Cool! What finish did you get? Dying for the call from Sweetwater.
Yeah, SE is a gateway guitar. Now we move up to S2. Soon, full blown custom builds LOL! Such a slippery slope.I got the Lake Blue one! I contacted my Sweetwater rep the day they were announced and he put in an order. Blue was the first one in asked if I wanted it and I wasn’t sure I’d get along with the pattern vintage neck but this one feels like it’s a keeper. The downside is now that I know I can get along with the neck it’s only a matter of time before the right core comes along with an Ebony board and smoked black hardware that I won’t be able to say no to lol.
Yea I really want to put in an order for a private stock thinline 594 but modding my current thinline to core electronics first to see how it sounds and feels before I make that kinda jump. I just enjoy the way my forearm feels better on the s2 top carve compared to the lip on the cores.Yeah, SE is a gateway guitar. Now we move up to S2. Soon, full blown custom builds LOL!

I couldn’t agree with you more. I own a few core PRS’s that are all great guitars, but my Santana SE gets just as much play time. It’s an extraordinary guitar for the money. A core Santana is nextI got my first ever PRS almost 2 months ago. It's a McCarty SE 594 in Black Gold Burst. I have a couple of Gibson LP's along with a really special Fender AO '50's Tele. This was my first excursion into the PRT world. For under a grand, I am blown away by the quality. I find I'm reaching for the McCarty more and more as I get comfortable with it. I'll probably pick up a DGT SE once the demand settles down. I've had my share of MIM Fenders and Asian Epi's but this SE is really a substantial step above. I'll get flack for saying this but I hadn't really bothered to look at PRS until I read and heard all the noise about these SE's. I am sure the S2 is a genuine step up but right now, these SE's are remarkably satisfying.
