    Any idea what type of paint is used on the Zach Myers SE? Straight Poly or something else?

    I played both in a store. I can't say the mahogany was a warmer sound - that was my initial intent to listen for. What jumped out at me was how much more there the mahogany one I played was. I really liked the maple top, but when I plugged in the mahogany and hit that first chord, I immediately thought there was something extra there. That was confirmed about half a second later when my wife said, "Whoa". Both guitars had a lot of tonal range to them (as you'd expect from PRS), but the standard just had some extra oomph to it.

    I just wanted to update everyone. I’m still really enjoying this guitar. If you’re on the fence, do it! (you might even thank me, if you can pry yourself away from it)

    I agree, it's great. I lowered my neck pickup a bit and raised the pole pieces, otherwise it's still even got the 10s on it and I'm pleased.

    According to the web site, they have two standards.

    I look forward to your pictures!
