    Ok. So I’m not sure how best to get the pics here lol! Tried Dropbox link but didn’t post. What’s the easiest way. I thought I was able to cut and paste? Or upload like I do on social media. Any quick way to do so?

    Whoa! You got Spalted and Flame! Beautiful guitar! Congrats

    You might consider starting a NGD thread, with your review and thoughts on the guitar, and maybe some more pics. :cool:

    New Guitar (or Gear) Day. It's the usual thread when someone gets new guitar. Go back to the main page "Electric Instruments", and look at the top right for the "Post New Thread" button in blue. You can check out the forum for other NGDs and see how others have done it.

    I believe they started manufacturing there for the 2018 models. So far I have ZERO complaints. Day three with my SE Custom 24

    From what I've read and what I've seen during interviews with various PRS employees it sounds like the Customs will still be made in Korea with Indonesia helping out if demand is greater than World Music can handle. My 2019 is Korean.

    From talking to the stores, I believe the intention is to move the entire SE range (Custom and Standard) to Indonesia. The newer and most popular lines (Zebrawood, Spalted Maple) have exhausted the Korean stocks so they are all Indonesian now. You can look at your headstock and see what year it was actually made - if its Korean the serial number will start with "S"' for 2018, "R" 2017, "Q" 2016, etc. It will be interesting to see how many SE Customer 2019 "T" are being made. I haven't seen too many.

    That's interesting Penfold. The Indonesian guitars are just as amazing as the Korean, IMO

    Welcome Spalster! All that matters ultimately is that you got a guitar that you’re happy with, and it sure is a beauty.
