Here are three of mine: Custom 22s from 2009. The two bursts are from the July 300 collection, equipped with Starla pickups. The blue 11 guitar is chambered and has The Artist pickups. All three have splittable humbuckers and wide/fat necks.

I‘m in! These are my S2 Satin Standard 24s. Probably the best guitars I’ve ever owned in my 30+ years of buying gear. Super comfortable to play, really resonant due to the satin finish on the solid mahogany body, and extremely versatile with the clear sounding modern-voiced humbuckers and coil split capabilities. I can’t think of anything I need a guitar to do that these can’t handle.

Decided not to wait for the SE Standard 24-08, and grabbed one of the last of these before they went away. Next batch expected in late summer or fall as far as I can tell. SE Custom 24-08. Used it on the last 3 gigs and find it to be unbelievably versatile and very comfy.

I’ve been in and out of this club with a ‘95 McCarty that was just a fine guitar all around, except for the humbuckers- for my tastes, kind of nasally, didn’t care for the sounds. It also had the split coil / single coil option on a pull pot; that sound ultimately no wayno either. Traded for a flattop Gibson that I like a lot.

However, in rethinking my own approach to humbuckers, and based on an Epi Lp Junior, realized I prefer without the cover.

The SE 245 standard tripped my trigger and it is now either my #1 or 2, depending.

Same quality build, playability, etc. If I had a minor quibble it would be the tuners, which seem to have a smaller ratio than what I’m used to. But not a real problem. And it’s a tad heavy, but not too much.

Just received my second PRS guitar, an SE Hollowbody II Piezo. I own some more expensive high quality guitars, but this one tops them all. I also own an SE 277 Baritone Soapbar Semi-hollow and it is a fantastic guitar as well, but I have to say this new one is simply remarkable.

Variety is the spice of life. Tele’s still my #1 though.
