    Nice, disfigured! Don't see a lot of SE PAs around here, that mildly chevron-looking flame sure looks great!

    I like PRS purples but always think they would never be for me but man that PA is juicy looking. I could wear that one. NICE!

    I just picked this one up by chance. The feel of the neck one of those Green Bat inlay SEs in a pawn shop was like a breath of fresh air, and that neck is what made me first seriously consider buying a PRS. 8 years and countless Maryland PRS' later, I finally got my first SE. Might be "the ugly one" of the lineup, but those Fralins sound gorgeous! Its got a super chunky neck and just about nails that old Junior tone.

    I've just noticed this morning that the moons on the SEs are set more closely together than the US models at the 12th fret. Excellent move PRS!

    Nice. Yours has Fralin P-90s, huh? That's a good upgrade. I can't believe how undervalued some of the SEs are on the used market.

    Yeah I love the Fralins. This guitar gives my US PRS a run for their money plugged in. I'm with you on the value of some of these SEs - I was looking at a couple and you can barely get a MIM Fender for what these go for used, I can't believe it. I see you have a Fralin/Suhr combo in your Baritone? which models did you go with? I've been trying to decide what set I'm after for my blue Cu22.

    I can't believe the price PRS is selling this guitar for. I feel guilty for buying it at 650. Should be about 1200.[​IMG]

    Please, leave the SE price alone. If you need to pay more to deal with your guilt then buy a US made model :)

    the SEs' prices shouldn't go any higher! Or else people in countries with high import duties (like Malaysia) will have to pay the price of USA Miras or Starlas to get an SE :( to curb the guilt, why not go get yourself an S2 ;) i believe they are priced at around 1000

    Hell, no! i wouldn't call it ugly at all, it just looks more understated ;) the grains are matched nicely, so i'd say it's a pretty lucky guitar to get the almost "matching" grain pattern (and you're the lucky owner!) I've seen some others with non-matching grains, my SE is an example. The backwood has like, 3 different tones for the 3 different pieces, so the differences are quite obvious. If it weren't for the beautiful maple-top, it'd be ugly :laugh:

    is that a GC special run? never seen this before :O

    Please tell me that the spalted maple tops are not only in the UK? That's my favorite top on a guitar.

    Look on Ebuy. Type in PRS SE- musical intruments in the search. There is a music store in Colorado that had a special run of 250 spalted tops done for them. They are very beautiful, but I've got Singlecut fever. Help! Is there a working treatment (other than 1 of every model?)

    Bro,

    Who did you send your guitar to to get your headstock refinished with that decal? It looks amazing!
