hey guys. So, ive been seriously GASing for a PRS for a long time. Found out im getting an $1800 school refund check in october. So i have two choices. Get a PRS CE24 used or get a used SE Custom 24 and a used SE Tremonti or baritone of some kind. Which would you guys go with and why? Thanks!

One great, every time. Doesn't matter what the other two are. Once you already have one solid backup, you don't need more backups.

depends... two good ones if they're totally sonically different, like a Tele and a jazz box. However, if the only sound you want is a les paul, just get a Gibson les paul instead of two epiphones.

Very this.

Swannie nailed it.

In your case, I'd get the one great guitar.

thanks for all the replies! Dont get me wrong, my Schecters have never failed me, but a solid PRS is pure ear sex i write in drop C# Eb standard almost exclusively. I was thinking two cuz i was considering a baritone or 7 string. Also, i know my name prolly pegs me as a metal head but i actually dont play brOOtz at all lol. I know the CE24 would prolly handle everything i throw at it and will be high quality so it seems like a solid choice. Plus, i love the finishes
#13
Save for a PRS Custom 24 (the actual 24's not SE). You could get a used one for around $1800, for a pretty good quality one at that. Or if you want to save the extra for a new one, that's even better. Trust me, once you play a 24, mostly everything else is a toy
Music must be honest to be timeless.

To me multiple pretty good guitars can make sense depending on how eclectic your tastes and playing are. I have a Schecter Omen 6 upgraded with seymour duncans; a "partocaster" I built with a P-90, strat single coil, and a humbucker; and a Grestch Electromatic. They all sound pretty drastically different to my ear and I love them all. The biggest problem is trying to decide which to play

im not gonna spend the whole 1800. I have to have money for gas and food and hopefully moving out. If this one works out though i'll start saving up when i move out and start getting ahead. Id love to try a Modern Eagle, but i honestly couldnt justify spending that much

yeah, it depends on the situation.

9 times out of 10 I'd say one great one, but if you're in a situation where you need two guitars (for whatever reason), then the two guitars might make sense.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

They're all PRS so you pretty much win either way. I'd agree with everyone else who said to consider the conditions. If you need more guitars to fool around with different tunings, go for the two.
#18
well i already have a two really solid guitars i gig with. I just want something with that prifessional quality and playability. i guess i just like having a lot of guitars haha. Thank God i have a good girl thats cool with me spanding a grand on a guitar instead of her

Get the CE for sure. USA PRSes play way better than import PRSes and you'll look a lot more legit.

Get the CE24 you won't regret it, I have a CE22 and have never regreted buying it it plays like a dream and sounds great for any type of music. I can go from Jazz to drop C and it sounds amazing.
