I'll add to the discussion here, rather than my NGD post.
I spent much of last night playing on it and think it's really excellent. The pickups (well overall tone, but you get the point) are the most remarkable bit. Ive read the positive feedback on them, and heard demonstrations, but I guess I wasn't fully aware of just how nuanced and balanced they sound. I have an American Original 50s strat as a, partial, point of comparison. I'm not going to slag that guitar off. I really like it - some may find it's neck absurdly thick, but I find it really comfortable and it sounds great. Plus, I got it for a confusingly good price.
Still, common retail price is lower, but in the same ball park as the silver sky. However, the build quality on the PRS is SOO much better. Even on these high end US strats, the knobs are cheap, the switching feels flimsy, and the trem seems fine, but unremarkable (I block them anyway). All of those details, plus the fretwork, on the Silver are just objectively better.
The one are of constructive feedback that I'd mention is that I get the sense that the PRS neck join design on the CE seems to be superior to the silver sky (see pics). The CE neck has a minimal a gap, as I can imagine is practical, between the neck and the body. The silver sky, on the other hand, has a bit of "gapping" which is similar to the fender. Not a deal breaker for me, but I am curious as to why the CE seems so much more well done in that regard. Thoughts????
