so is there a real difference besides the obvious (pickups) in these guitars?....is it all the accessories that make the rr1 more expensive...ie. pickguard, case, two pickups?...the 24 would fit my style and needs better but wondering why the rr1 is so much more expensive...and if its really better
P.S. im and active guy and dont want to hear about the pickups

A lot of the price of the RR1 comes from the fact that it's US made. Plus it comes with other snazzy upgrades like nicer inlays, neck pickup (kind of a big deal), etc...

Mostly because of build quality though...

^ As an owner of a bridge pickup only guitar I get what you mean. I feel that way too sometimes where i just say, "**** versatility, I want metal!"

Just as long as you know what you're getting yourself into, the RR24 sounds like a good fit for you. Make sure you play it before hand because it can be a pain to hit that 24th fret. The neck joint isn't the most amazing...

Nope I'm just obsessed with them, lol. Even in the classical position, I'm not that comfortable with them, but I might just say screw it and get one anyway one of these days...

My sig says PRS fund, but really there are at least a half dozen guitars I'm considering purchasing. The important thing is that I save money for a full year without touching it so I have enough to get any guitar/amp I want before I head off to Uni...
