    Out in local city on Sunday and strategically parked outside a Guitar shop where the meters are less of a financial drain. Had some time left after the inevitable shoe shops, popped in and said, I'll have a shiny new one of these sent to my . Big van just dropped this off .

    Love the colour. Nice guitar.

    I have the Tremonti SE and it plays really nice and sounds great.

    Thanks. 2018 model even came with a CITES import sticker on the box approving the use of Indian Rosewood. Was thinking bout a Fender Player series strat but this felt better and was 75 per cent of the price. First impressions are nice, it's bright but probably because it's a non maple cap model. Beautifully set up by PRS Europe but the strings hadn't even been stretched. If that's my only complaint, I'll be delighted.

    SE's are really great guitars..I regret not grabbing one before the prices climbed. Still one of the best values out there. Congrats.

    Congratulations & HNGD!
    I love the quality and playability of my SE 245: the SE Standards are great quality at an even more attractive price point. Although they simplified the body by making it solid mahogany (no maple top) adding the neck binding is a sweet move.
    My only grumble about my PRS SE is a very minor one... I don’t like the look of the zebra humbuckers (partly influenced by the fact that zebra are used due to the dumb DiMarzio US trademark on double-cream humbuckers!). My fix - £10-worth of nickel pickup covers, zebras concealed!

    Not so much. "Why do you need another guitar". Oh, this one's blue!
