    I can’t figure out their names. Is that what I have? I don’t even know. I know it was made in Asia. And had two little switches between the knobs that I removed.

    Nice!

    Nothing better than buying something you really like after.. beats the idea of having to sell it back for a loss.

    I’ve heard those bridges are supposed to have superb intonation

    I like those “Paul’s guitar” guitars except for the funny looking pickup surrounds

    That looks like a nice finish a lot of those seem to be too orange for my liking

    Congratulations that's a really pretty guitar, what model is it?

    I've had several PRS guitars over the years, a Santana SE second generation, a S2 Std 22 (no bird on that one) a S2 Std 24 (dots again) briefly a PRS SE Hollowbody w birds.
    I currently have a CE24 and it seems that I am liking it more every time I play it.

    @Fretting out - they just look like Gibson style surrounds to me.

    @Ringo - it’s a Paul’s Guitar SE -
    Which means more budget line I think.

    This is what the stock pickups and rings look like

    I see what you mean. Not a huge fan of black on that guitar either.

    To the OP. I'm not really sure that this picture is doing the Guitar justice. Perhaps you could send the Guitar to me so that I can get a better look?;)
