    I restrung it last night and there’s a reason it’s so lively, the bridge rings like a high bell!

    It reminds me of the Tedtalk that Paul did, where he had the stage mic’d up and he dropped a bridge on the floor and it rang acoustically.

    And this is on an SE!

    Interesting, so Korean made PRS guitars are indeed real. Good to know

    Yes, the SE line used to come from Korea. Manufacturing has been moved to Indonesia. Although my 2019 SE Custom was still produced in Korea so some have been still made there last year maybe the last ones before the complete movement?

    Thinking of getting the 35th SE.. but I understand it's made in Indonesia. In 2018 I personally have touched and feel both Korea vs Indonesia SEs.. and I it wasn't even close. Korea all the way.

    That said I am hesitant on buying Indonesia made.

    Comments?

    Don't hesitate. I have an SE245 and SE Paul's guitar, both from Cor-Tek Indonesia. They are outstanding guitars. Fit and finish are flawless. I have looked at and played S2 instruments and come away feeling that my SE's were better guitars. Of course, could be cognitive bias, but even still they are fantastic guitars.
