    I have been trying to learn guitar on and off my whole life. I always gave up after a couple of months. Well, that was until I got my hands on a 2017 SE custom 24. I love practicing everyday for as long as I can now. I can't explain why it feels so good in my hands but it just does.

    Anyway, I only spent $770 on this model and I want to go ahead and invest more, while I have it to do so :) I want to keep it around or under $2500. What PRS model would you guys get? Would you go used or brand new?

    I grew up on G&R, Motley Crue and all that stuff, but I love Blues and R&B as well.

    PLEASE HELP....ALL ADVICE IS MORE THAN WELCOME!

    If the SE Cu24 is working for you, look for a used USA core Cu24.
    There's a huge selection of 'em out there.

    Great advice, lots of used CU-24's out there. Play a few, determine which neck profile you like, pattern or pattern thin. That will help narrow down your search.

    Go play some and let one find you. You might be surprised at what you like. I learned to completely forget about looking for a specific model.

    If you don't mind bolt-ons and if you're looking for a USA model with better everything I would consider the PRS CE24. The street price is $1899. I personally don't pay full retail on new. I'd look for a retailer that would be willing to sell at least with a 20% discount.
