ive arranged to do a whole lot of stuff including getting a proper job and selling things, selling my soul to the devil ect to get a ce24. is it worth it? is there anything else i should consider? opinions?

If you want it that badly, why not? It's a good guitar.

Tell us what music you're playing and what amp you have and we'll recommend you some stuff.

PRS is CNC overpriced. As someone who owns a PRS I would not reccomend one.

Roman Quicksilver is better:

I don't care much for the regular superstrat ones, but I'd stab a baby for a singlecut 245 (in black)

I have a singlecut 245 and If I didn't have the money, I probably would have sold my soul for it!

if you're going to sell your soul though, you should at least barter for a custom 24 rather than the CE

CE24 boltons are the sh!t. Mines a 94 from the original factory.
If you set it up right i will be amazing. Keep it stock too (and yes I have a load of other axes but nothing compares)

i dont really see whats actually better to justify the big price jump. mahogany neck is nice but i would be perfectly happy with maple and im not made of money. is there a difference that i am not seeing though?

the wide thin prs neck just feels perfect to my hands. ive found guitars that i really like the necks on but this just feels the best to me.

as to what i play: rock is kinda my middleground but i have a lot of very different influences so versitility is important.

the main deterrent to buy the guitar is i feel that im not as good a player as the guitar. it makes me feel guilty. i do have to give myself credit cause i try very hard to be good though. (no im not a n00b but its a damn expensive guitar) i still feel guilty about it. any opinions on this?

^^I had the same feeling when buying my Fender CS Strat. It goes away. It'll make you want to play more and get better. New toys are always a big motivator. You'll live up to it in no time.

yeah thats what i figured. i reckon its a damn hard instrument to live up to. most people around me dont have such fancy guitars which makes me feel guilty. on the other hand, most people have more than just one guitar (i will only have the ce24). it shouldnt be something that bothers me but it really does.

Buy it. You won't regret it. There are plenty of well cared-for used ones for sale. Nobody relics a PRS.

Also, the stock pickups are just fine, although I have replaced my neck pu with a Dragon I. The stock ones are pretty close to the Dragon I according to PRS.

Buy an old PRS if you do buy one. Don't buy a new one.


i havent really found a good deal. i live in australia and the aussie dollar has gone down terribly so it is really expensive to import. locally there arent really any bargains other than a singlecut for 2500 aud. as much as i love the looks and the sound, the neck is too fat and it isnt double cutaway.
#15
I felt really guilty when I got my singlecut, I've only been playing for about 4 and a half years and I still don't think I deserve it, but I'm bloody glad I have it. My logic is that I won't ever really need another guitar, so the fact that I got it earlier than I really should've won't make much difference.

Call Ed Roman. I bought a Custom 22 from him for $500.00 US. He sells Custom 22s for whatever he trades them in for. I sold it to put towards my 1960 Les Paul fund.

regardless of price, which do you think is better. dave navarro or ce24?

yeah the comment above says pretty clearly tha the dave navarro should be better but the dave navarro isnt exactly a custom and i also really like the look of maple tops.

i need to make this decision pretty soon and i would like as many opinions as possible.

yeah thats the main difference. i dont really mind brighter or darker but is the mahogany neck louder or does it have greater sustain?

other than that i vastly prefer the look of the ce24.

I'm using a custom 24 and I would think that the ce would sound more stratty , theres definetely not gonna be any discernable difference in sustain and no idea how loud it will be but I say get the ce24 if u prefer the looks. You really can't go wrong with a PRS imo haha

ok problem solved

i just got a prs custom 22 in black cherry with a wide-thin neck and a push pull tone pot.

i preferred the pickups on it to the 24 fret ones. More vintagey.

YAY!
