That's a gorgeous SE! If it sounds half as good as it looks, I'd probably be hiding one from my wife as we speak. Enjoy it and congrats!

I've been eyeballing the SE's for a while. Let us what you think of it.

I was googling PRS SE 245s last night and came across these. Man, if they were available in the US, I'd be ALL OVER one of these

I've owned two SEs. IMO they are the best 600-700 dollar guitars out right now. The 2012 SE Customs are coming with Push/Pull tone controls and the blade switch instead of the toggle. Paul Reed Smith himself has mentioned that the SE line is a priority for his company. Zach Myers from Shinedown is using his SE sig in the Studio and on the Road. Even when I was drumming full time, owning a PRS was something I always wanted to happen. I actually saw a PRS SE for 499 online not to long ago. I love my PRS. Highly recommend playing one if you have a shot.

I agree. I have an SE Santana that I purchased when I went to try out a strat. Never could find a strat that I liked. But while I was there, I tried the Santana, and holy crap; it was amazing! I think that with a store credit I had, I got it for like $500 cash or something.

There is nothing about the standard PRSs that is worth 5x the price. The SEs are fabulous guitars!

Too funny, I was actually looking at SE Santanas last night on eBay. I've never really looked into any PRS guitars, always thought they were overpriced (okay,... I'm a cheapskate!) but these SEs look pretty nice.

If I could swing a Santana for around $500, I'd probably think seriously about it, though.

GC sells them for right around $700... I had some credit when I got mine, so it was easy to rationalize "I'm only paying $500 for this!" :-)

Even at $700, they're grand guitars.

I bought my SE singlecut during a sale GC had where I got 100 bucks off of 599 and up. So I got it for 499. But, I was picking up my LP that I had the luthier setup for me and happened to see the Custom 24. Because I picked up the extended warranty, my exchange period was extended by 30 days. So I swapped out my Singlecut for the Custom. They matched the 599 price even though it was listed at 660.

Don't know how you feel about EBay, but I've seen SEs for around 500. I could've swore one was a Santana. I understand what your saying..it was one of the 5 SE models I tried. Great Axe.

My SE Singlecut Trem is the only electric I've been playing recently. Couldn't be happier. My US Les Paul can't touch it on playability. I want a 245 bad...

NICE SINGLECUT! I have a US LP as well and my PRS has relegated it to its hard case. I completely agree with you. There is something about the SE that screams PLAY ME! It's holds it's own with my Tele in playability. The 245s are great. Would love to have one myself.

Hey Pondcaster, Hellomusic just posted a SE Santana for 565. It won't last long at that price, but I thought you might like to know. If you haven't seen it for yourself already:-)
