I say keep hunting around for one. Try Craigslist and local shops to see if you find one by chance. You may have a hard time getting a local mom and pop shop to order a Mira if they are registered as an SE dealer with the new dealership requirements and their current stock of PRSi. Best of luck on your hunt mate and enjoy.


A friend of mine is saying they had some high end ones in, hopefully that's a good sign.

Thanks.

I've got a PRS SE EG S/S/H.
It was my first guitar. I wanted something I could start with but also progress with.
I love it a ton, we've done a lot together.
I just got an Ibanez JS1200 \m/, and although that is now my main axe, I still use my PRS for alternate tunings.
#165
I've got a Santana SE, and I love that guitar to death. But like I read earlier, it can't hold a tune real well. So my question is, what kind of nut do you guys recommend to replace it? And where should I order it from? Thanks in advance.
#168
^Yeah they are great quality mate. Graphtech makes great nuts and Stewmac hasn't failed me yet.

What's the best budget friendly PRS guitar? (The ones udner a thousand, SE Custom)

How's the hardware on those things? I know the tuners, tremolo, and electronis are all PRS designed, not the real deal. The craftsmanship, from what I've heard, is amazing, though.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
#171
^Brilliant guitars. The only thing I would suggest replacing on an SE Custom would be the nut and bridge block. The bridge block isn't really a necessity but you will notice a difference if you change the block for a higher quality one. The nut would be a must if you get the trem model. Most nuts from what I heard and in my experience on the SE guitars have binding issues. You can change pickups to suit your taste if you want. Otherwise they are great guitars for the money.

How would an SE Custom do with Blues/Jazz and Classical Rock music? I'd either keep the stock pickups, or put in a JB/'59 combo.

It should handle blues, jazz and classic rock fine. The pickups aren't necessarily tuned for those type of tones or any other specific tones in general I would say. They kinda just cover the basses really well imo. I'd say try one out with your amp if possible and if you dig it leave the stock pups. If not a change is in order. I'd just suggest going with something outside of the much overused JB/59 combo. There are a plethora of other pups out there.

I love it, such a versitile beast,.
I use it for jazz, metal and everything in between.
I've not yet used it through my Laney Lionheart (Cab is yet to arrive) but through my other amp it sounds thick and powerful on the bass strings and yet bright with lovely clarity on the treble strings.

I urge you to try it with open ears, you'll love it!

^Will-do then next time I go to GC. One more question though; do you know if the pikcups are four-conductor/tappable, or would I have to get a new set for that?

I got my Custom 24 back in May, and I have yet to find a guitar that suits me more. Everything about it is just awesome. Here's a few pictures of it:

I have a PRS SE Custom with trem and i also have a question hehe, anybody has tried to downtune this guitar to B? that would be 2 & 1/2 steps... I know i should get a baritone and all that and that the scale is short (25,5¨ but i think that with some good locking tuners and 13 gauge strings it would do just fine. What do you think?

Theoretically it's entirely possible with a good setup with thick strings. I personally wouldn't do it and just get a baritone if I will be using that guitar exclusively for down tunings though. You can always pick up the PRS Mike Mushok SE and you won't have a problem there.

I know a few people who had them on order. Only one I remember actually receiving theirs though but he loved the guitar upon arrival. Not sure if he is still giving it regular rotation these days though since I haven't heard much talk about the SC-J's lately. Another friend of mine has had his on order since about the same time as you and hasn't received his yet. Honestly the way I see it I would have given up waiting on the guitar by now unless I already paid it off completely. Then I'd just forget about the guitar and it would show up randomly one day and bring some excitement to my life . PRS is having some difficulty getting usable billets large enough for the body of this guitar so they haven't been shipping everything out as fast as they would like. Hopefully yours will turn up in the mail soon if you decide to wait it out. Best of luck to you mate.

ok dont hate me guys, but i went to play on a PRS today... i am getting one from my dad for grad. so i was looking at a Singlecut HollowBody I. not really my style, but it is beautifull... so i played it... ahhhh i didnt like it at all.... i mean i looks and feels GREAT.. but i got a better sound from my tele... i was playing it through a Mesa Triple rec. just like i have. so i though maybe its just the hollow body.. so i got a custom down... it sounded just as bad... not really bad, just really really muffled.. i tryed playing with the amp to get a brighter sound, but i even turned the bass all the way down and treb all the was up. i messed with all the ton knobs on the guitar but couldnt change anything.. i really liked the feel of it, the best playing guitar i have ever picked up, but what am i doing wrong? i tryed every setting.. what kind of prs gives a full mid range sound?

i haven't yet seen a prs users thread so thought it was about time we got to shout over the fender/gibson army for a minute!

i bought my prs se singlecut (in heritage cherry burst.....yum) last year (after going over and over all the other makes and models in my price range) for a mere £400 and have been in love with it ever since. apart from a couple of set up tweaks i haven't changed a single thing and don't intend to. it does everything i want it to without a fuss and plays like magic.

my ambition is to a.) own a top end prs and b.) be good enough to be worthy of playing it!

the only other guitar that could drag me away from it at the moment would be the new gibson sg special faded 3 in white.......


what model is your prs?
why did you buy it?
how much do you love it?
what, if any, other guitar could drag you away from it?



I have the same guitar got given it as a present a few days ago!

It's lovely, i just have it in a slightly darker shade than that i think. Such a nice guitar to play on and the sustain goes on forever.
#191
I had a SE custom that i sold to buy a rg7620 that i really regretted. Fortunately i sold the rg7620 to buy a strat that i wanted lol.

I play on buying another SE in the near future. For the $400-500 they can be picked up for on ebay, they are an awesome guitar and great platform to modify. I may pickup a singlecut and throw a set of EMGs in it
#192
What is with all of the SEs in this place? What happened to REAL Paul Reed Smith? I once played an Se Custom and loved it, but went to a friend's place and played a real Custom 22. Talk about major difference...

Paul's main guitar is a PS model (can't remember the order number atm). You can't buy this version of his guitar unless you order a replica of the guitar through the PS system which will be pricey. I'm against buying signature guitars personally but that's a whole other story. That being said Paul now tours with both the SE and US version of his guitar. They both are fine enough for him to play live. If you want a guitar as close to Paul's as possible your best bet would be to either buy the SE and swap the pups or just order PS if you have that type of money at the ready.

I'm thinking of buying the SE custom 22 trem or the SE custom 24 trem ( if i can find em lol ) last time I played one it felt so damn good (even though the neck is fat and I have normal sized hands lol) but I also heard they are a real hit and miss... is this true?

Properly setup most guitars are fine. Bad guitars are more down to the shop not doing their job properly than anything else.

k kool... but I can only get the custom 24 trem online, so I can't play it first.. .that's a rela bugger if I can play a 22 will that be roughly the same or should I make the 3-400 kilometer journey to check out the single guitar? lol

I've never heard that the SE Custom guitars where hit or miss nor have I ever played a bad one. I owned one awhile back and it was an excellent guitar. If its the guitar you really want go out, find one, play it and buy it if you like it. You've already done the bulk of that so now all you have to do is pull the trigger. If you really want the SEC24 then I suggest waiting it out a bit until they pop up in your area to try out. You really can't go wrong with them imo and after a nut change and a proper setup they are lifelong friends.
