    Very good guitar

    As usual PRS has delivered the goods. The SE is a great player, nicely finished and very versitile. Generally not a fan of coil splitting of humbuckers but the pups on this guitar are well balanced and there are many useful tones to be had. This guitar is somewhere between Les Paul beefy and SG cutting. This guitar really cuts through a mix.The wide thin neck is very comfortable and the upper frets are easily reached. I own a bunch of guitars from budget Squires, Epiphones and SE's as well as big ticket Fenders, Gibson and so on. The SE line compares very well with the US versions. Of course the US line is a higher quality but I really dig the SE line. As usual, Sweetwater delivered the guitar quickly , my only complaint was the set up was not really good for this guitar. I have purchased a number of guitars from Sweetwater and this was the first time I had to totally redo the set up. A minor detail for me since setups are kinda fun to do anyway.

    OMG...Blows away Les Paul Not even close.

    My name is Nathan Clay.. I have owned 6 Les Pauls in the last two years.
    I keep selling them because they just don't have what I am looking for. I am also a guitar tech since 1970. I learned guitar construction and repair from a guitar maker in Hollywood named Candellas at that time he had been making guitars for forty years. He taught me allot of secrets that he had found over that forty years. And So I am very picky about my guitars. and rebuild almost every guitar I have ever bought. And Les Pauls I am just not happy with them. This guitar cost half the price of a les paul and right out of the box blows away every Les Paul I have ever played. it is not the top of the line for Paul Reed Smith and is made in Korea but it is a OMG guitar. I also bought some Seymour Duncan pickups to replace the pickups that are on it. But I don't think I am going to use them on this guitar. I think I am going to use them on an old Strat I am hot rodding. this paul reed smith SE model is so much more than I expected. This is like a les paul on steroids..and a stratocaster..and a telecaster. I can get all those sounds out of it. without changing the amp settings. By far the best guitar out of the box, I have ever found. OMG is all I could say when I plugged it in.

    PRS SE 24 Custom

    This is a nice guitar. I got exactly what I saw. The looks of this instrument is very good, good craftsmanship, and plyability. Most importanly the sound on all pickup positions on the humbuckers are fantastic. The tapping on the single coils are not that great but fairly good. With just the sound of the humbuckers I think you will not need the single coils. The neck is really smooth and comfortable and nice access to the 24 frets. I would like to have the american made guitar just to compare, cause quite frankly, In my opinion, this one at the half price and for the appearrance, sound, and playability don't think I would pay double amount for the american. The bird inlays look handsome. If you plan changing strings for the 10-46 you will either modify the necknut or replace it as I did. The service from my friends at Sweetwater is by far another level the best!. Yes, I would recomend the product and Sweetwater to others!
