Waited almost a year to write a review since I wanted to make sure I can compare this guitar with others and give a more objective review. I had numerous people playing it and be blown away by their reaction. Guitarist who play thousands of euro of guitars simply fell in love with it.
Starting from Esthetics the guitar is very well put together. great finish and choice of veneer and craftsmanship is impeccable. Great fret work throughout. Played around with the action a bit and also had to adjust the truss rod after a few months but this is something I got used to with all my other guitars.
Electronics are quite good some reviews say that pickups are not top end or expensive ones but in my opinion they offer a good balance and managed to create a variety of sounds combined with effects pedals and amp models.
It took me sometime to adjust the posture when playing sitting down as opposed to the Stratocaster shape since the wider bottom places the guitar slightly backwards than start shapes. But this helps for a longer fret board.
I play it and the first adjectives which come to mind are sweet and delicate. Perhaps this is subjective but it is definitely a guitar which is worth having. PRS pride themselves to make guitars for everyone and the SE editions are not to be look down at or avoided. They create great guitars not juts for beginners.
Would I recommend buying , definitely. After the first nice surprise which meets the eyes, play it and you will be further pleased
