    Neck perfection

    Great guitar! But what else would you expect from PRS? This is my third PRS and each is a dream to play. And the neck is perfection. This semi- hollow body is going to be my go to guitar for some time.... or until my next PRS!! If you haven't tried one, do yourself a favor buy one. You'll be hooked.

    Love the PRS SE

    As a working musician that appreciates great craftsmanship, I was very impressed with the PRS SE Hollowbody. I needed a guitar that I could play outdoors in the Texas heat that didn't cost as much as a US made PRS, but still looked, played and sounded great. I play a lot of acoustic guitar in the band and wanted the resonance of a semi hollow with the versatility and playability of a PRS. The neck is great and you get a nice acoustic tone with the pickup switch in the middle position with the tone rolled back a bit. It also sounds great cranked up on the neck pickup. Only thing I wish it had was rounded edges on the upper bout for greater comfort on your forearm....but that's a small sacrafice for such a well made instrument at this price point.

    Real nice guitar

    I'm in a sort of prog-rock band. I play this guitar through a VOX AC-15 and it sounds dynamite.The fingerboard is fast and tight, kind of like an SG but not so big and cumbersome. The SE hollowbody (a misnomer, since it's actually semi-hollow) is so light it almost feels like it wants to float away. I like the PRS humbuckers and how they sound. I love the feedback I get from my SE.

    I had been looking for another semi-hollow that would replace an Ibanez Artcore semi-hollow I was playing. I wasn't too pleased with the electronics on that instrument. I'd considered an Epi 335 or a semi-hollow tele, but this just seemed to call out to me. Sweetwater was the only place I could find that had the tri-color burst finish. The photos don't do it justice. The guitar came ready to play right out of the box just like they said it would.

    My only note is I'd like to have had individual volume control on the pickups, but I'm getting used to how it is. The strap buttons seem OK so far but I'm not above replacing them with Strap-locks or some such.
