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. 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.
