PRS SE 2017 series is superb

Vintage player, 11.11.2017
I always wanted to own PRS SE Custom 24, so I may be slightly biased, but here it goes...

Like many other guys I was torn between Fender and Gibson from the early days. Namely Stratocaster, and on Gibson end it was Les Paul, and SG. As I grew more demanding on sound my interests swung more towards Gibson.... And then I discovered PRS.

It is a well known fact that PRS guitars, and this model in particular, were made to be ?the best of both worlds? in your choice between Gibson and Fender. And this is exactly what it is, but also much more.

For something over 800 Euros you get a guitar which is head and shoulders above any Fender I tried, or even Gibson LP Studio (which are fantastic guitars by the way). However, quality vs price on this PRS 2017 series is just unbeatable.

The neck, the fretboard, strings action, and general feel are amazing, The guitar is extremely easy/soft to play, and the guitar simply rings with these new pickups, than there's that finish, the attention to detail, and all this on a model that is supposed to be a "low budget version", is simply remarkable.

Likes:

1) String action and playability, soft, extremely smooth and easy to play (I nearly burnt my lunch when guitar was delivered, as I could not stop playing with my new toy ;-)
2) Sound, just remarkable, and even with these 9/42 super light gauge, which I don't really use (will replace with 10/46 any day now... I can already imagine the tone then). This new 85/15 PRS designed pickup are fabulous, could only be bettered by Seymour Duncans - but really no need to do that.
3) Push/pull for coil split, a great touch (yes it can sound closer to Fender Strat, for those interested).
4) Colour and finish (looks much better than on the image on the product page), a beautiful guitar. Paul's signature finally appears on the headstock, about time.
5) Neck, thin and wide, with superbly crafted fretboard and frets somewhere in between jumbo and medium I believe.

Dislikes (my only reasons for 4 stars on features):

1) Tremolo cavity cover on the back could have been set-in like on the US model, but you can always simply remove it if it irritates you (well, Santana does)
2) And that one last detail that bothers me vs the US model, the volume/tone knobs base could be indented.. (I'll keep dreaming I suppose)

To wrap up,

Don?t get hung up on the fact it?s Korean make and not the US. It is a well known fact this World Musical Instrument Co makes exquisite quality guitars for PRS. This guitar is the best value guitar I ever purchased, and the first one I bought online without actually seeing the guitar. It was a big risk, but it paid off - as where I live there are no decent guitar shops.

I have tasted the US model, yes, amazing guitar. Do I yearn for it with this SE model in my hands? Not at all, I really don?t ?.at least not for the time being.

I am already looking into getting the Santana model from the same 2017 series, but that is another story...

The guitar is very beautiful, better than the photo, at the level of the table that is flamed. Beautiful ...
The handle is nice and a facilitated game surprising. On the other hand the original tie in 09/42 is too weak for a correct tuning ... and it is on this point that the guitar pulls its most negative point, original, the use of vibrato Floating is impossible, hardly touched, the guitar loses its tuning ...
I have of course purchased mechanical schaller block M6 which adapts without modifications on the guitar. Once changed, the same ... vibrato = loss of tuning ... it is frankly limit for a guitar that borders the 900¤. The problem comes from the nut that does not slide enough and the stroke holds the strings to the use of the vibrato ... change for a nut black tusq XL 6643 00 (about 10¤) which is perfectly adapted to the guitar, A small rectification of the height of the nut. There is good, we arrive at something not bad to use the vibrato.
The microphones are not bad, but I still think change them for seymour duncan to have a sound a little more powerful ...
In short, super lutherie, a look of hell, but plan to change the nut to keep a correct tuning .. it is a good value for money anyway ...
