    Hi, I'm new to the group and to PRS'. I just picked up a SE Custom 24 on Monday. I've been a Gibson/Ibanez guy for years but have been intrigued, yet not terribly blown away by any I've tried until this one. As a matter of fact, I played this exact model the day before at a different store and didn't love it, this one just feels right. My biggest complaint with this one is the finish, don't get me wrong, it's beautiful but I already have 3 cherry burst guitars. As a matter of fact 3 of my friends and my girlfriend didn't even realize this was a new guitar. [​IMG] I spent easily an hour between this one and another SE Custom 24 with a purple top that had a one piece neck that was noticeably thicker and not nearly as comfortable for me. I will say this is probably the best playing guitars I've ever owned....Saturday's gig will be the real test though.

    I have a couple of SE CU24s. My first is a vintage sunburst like yours. The second has a Scarlet Red top which I also really like. They both play and sound great.

    HNGD! :cool:

    I'm not sure if that's an inside joke or not :shrug: but if it wasn't it was on par with the one I got. :hbang:

    The reason I asked is because I've yet to find an Amethyst that looks like the ones in the marketing pics.

    Ah! I didn't really notice too much of a difference between it and the burst but I also didn't scrutinize it since it didn't really play as nice as I would have liked.

    Huh, the grain in the picture is not as pronounced as in real life.
