    I'm fairly certain this has been discussed before, sorry. At least this guitar has been described. But what is it? It's an SE. At least his gig bag said that.

    This is from his setting in on "Live at Daryl's House". And they are screen grabs so not the best photos. But a very interesting guitar.

    That’s one of the dozen or so CU24’s PRS made to try and coax Carlos into playing the “new” PRS guitars. Affectionately dubbed “Tri-color Rasta’s”.

    Definitely not an SE.

    Not an SE?! Ok. the episode just showed him arriving with a gig bag that had "SE" on it. Thanks.

    I mean, we all do that! Amirite?

    That’s one of the reasons to buy an SE.

    Yep, def not an SE. To add to what Sergio said, the few that were made were done in '92, I believe. They go for crazy money these days. Like Private Stock money. I was lucky enough to be up close and personal to one.

    Tony, one of our infrequent members has one. Sergio, Boogie and I saw him at a club in Chicago.

    Awesome guitar, and as previously stated, Those SE Gig bags are some of the best out there.
    (that's a +/-$40.00 bag around a 10K guitar, which you'll see often around the experiences)

    Looks like someone autographed it just behind the bridge.

    I'd play one of those. Always dug the rasta theme....maybe a PS CU22 rastafied?? Actually, I bet a rastafied Vela would be beastly.... especially with a veneer added!
