    So it would seem...
    This is my 4th S2.
    (I like the S2 bevels.)

    It was just hanging there in between all the fancy ones.
    They said nobody wanted it because it was so plain.
    It does not feel or sound plain in any way.

    You have chosen...well!

    I think people confuse "understated" and "plain" and "boring" far too much.

    Just had a similar experience with a vintage sunburst Zack Myers that had been hanging around for ages as no one wanted it, they all wanted the snot green .. oops trampas green one, still had a nice flame on it, plays like a dream and I like the colour, plus I got a very nice discount on it.

    I think that S2 looks the business, a real pro’s guitar. All meat, no filler.

    A wise choice!

    Mark me up as a believer in understated too. That is very clean looking. Like it means business!

    Looks great to me. Lots of difference between understated and ugly. Bad on them, good for you!

    I dig it man you rescued her (him?) from a toneless and boring hanger-focused existence. Proud of you!

    FWIW no joke the best-sounding PRSes I have ever had have all been relatively "Plain Janes"

    Works for women too, considering the hot/crazy scale and all. ;)

    Congrats! That has a really nice subtle figure to the top - perfect for that color.

    I REALLY like the sunburst PRS does.
    Plain? Not to me. More like understated beauty!

    I was always willing. I’m far too easy.

    Congrats on your S2 score.

    That's a great "Taking Care Of Business" guitar right there.

    I believe you pick up as many guitars as you can, while you can, and decide what the the keepers
    are after you've given them a chance to prove themselves.

    In the case of PRS guitars, they're most likely going to all be keepers.
