    That's just as ugly as any other PRS I've ever seen. Fine guitars that look horrendous. I'm happy for those who like them.

    I love my PRS S2 Standard 22!

    Unfortunately no. I haven't had a need to open the guitar up.

    I used to have a PRS Se One I bought because it was such a good guitar, comforting myself looks dont matter, it might even grown on me etc. It didn't, of course.

    I seem to remember some aftermarket vendor selling those type of bridges. Anyone can confirm?

    Yes, « Mastery Bridge » is making a two saddles tele bridge. It is a bit different (more complex, engineered).

    My S2 Mira is a really really good guitar. I owned an se one and a McCarty too. Both great, but fell victim the GAS shuffle. Mira is hanging on for now!

    I really don't get the 3 saddle bridge thing. The two saddle version just screams "I wanna be out of tune just that much more"
    Actual it just looks like the wraparound lightning bolt Gibson intonation from way long ago.

    I have a Vela; that's a reasonable description, but there is a little more room to minimally adjust things. Like PRS's original fixed wraptail (their version of the Gibson lightning bolt) it is really pretty well intonated for .009s and .010s.

    I really like the 508, Vela, Starla and the Mira. I've played a few PRS guitars and I was impressed with them.
    In the past I was a big Gibson and Fender fan, but I'd rather have a PRS than a Gibson today and I'm kinda meh on Fender.
    I have a PRS clone that's a joy to play.

    Not a bad look to me. Would prefer a full tele-style humbucker bridge, so the pickguard would look a little more streamlined. And I like fretboard binding on fancier guitars.
