So I’m on the search for my first PRS and decided to stop by my local GC to try out a couple. I wanted to feel the difference between a 24 vs 22 fret and the wide thin vs wide fat neck. The GC local to me is fairly small and they only had four PRS’s in total. The two I tried were a Tremonti and and SE Custom 24. The first thing I noticed is that the neck feels quite a bit wider than my Strat and LP. I could tell the Tremonti’s neck was fatter than the 24’s, but it didn’t feel like a huge difference. All in all I felt that both were thicker than either the 60’s slim on my LP and the modern C of my Strat. Maybe it was the wider fret board that made them both feel that way. I’ve never played a 24 fret neck and found that I actually preferred it over the 22 fret. I was pleasantly surprised by that, as a 24 fret PRS was/is what I was most interested in. The things I didn’t like were the glossed backs of the necks and for some reason the fret board on the 24 felt sticky. My hand was not sliding very well on the gloss neck, I’m used to the satin neck of my Strat and the nitro on my LP has started to smooth out as well. Any tricks like using a scotch bright pad on the neck to fix the gloss? As for the fret board, both of these were older Korean SE’s and have been in the store for awhile. Both are new and maybe since they’ve been there for awhile, they’ve picked up some gunk and just need to be cleaned. Anyway, I didn’t really have a point other than to say that I’m on the look for a new guitar and my first PRS. I also found that I believe I prefer the feel of the 24 fret over the 22 fret models. Anyone have any other recommendations that I should keep in mind on my search? They did have a CE 24, but it was used and FL Guitar Centers are still not selling used equipment at the moment. Thanks for reading.
