Very nice guitar
I received this guitar as a gift. I'm reviewing it on Sweetwater's site because my last 4 guitars came from them.I'll start off with the appearance. It is a stunner! I have the vintage cherry with the bird inlays. It is made from a nice looking piece of mahogany and finished in a beautiful dark cherry gloss with full body and neck binding. It is light and very comfortable to play. Build Quality: Although this SE model is manufactured in Korea, the build quality is exemplary! The finish is flawless, the hardware,ie the tuners, switches, pots, and bridge/tailpiece unit seems to be high quality.This guitar has nice large strap buttons, and i don't feel you would need straplocks installed on it. I've played some USA PRS guitars before, namely a Santana model, and the hardware appears up to the USA standards. The frets are nicely finished, no jagged edges or high or low frets. The Sound: The pickups are Good sounding humbuckers. They are reminiscent of Gibson Burstbuckers.They are sensitive and can get dirty when you want them to. I am pleased with the sound and have no plans on changing them. I play this guitar through a Marshall DSL 40C and it sounds fantastic! The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it's not American made! If you are in the market for a single cut, Les Paul type of guitar, I highly recommend this instrument. You won't be disappointed!
