    Cool, and they cost the same as the regular ones as well. I like the grey one!

    Yes, these are europe exclusives. But who knows, maybe they just do this as a test about how these are selling/accepted and it's getting a regular model/choice, because CITES and sh*t...

    Isn't this like Holcomb model with a maple fretboard, trem and PRS licensed pups?
    Actually this got me really indecise about getting one of these or saving the 200 for the Holcomb one!

    No, it's not like the Holcomb. it is a 10" radius fretboard (20" for the Holcomb), it's 25" scale (25,5")... It will not feel, play and sound like the Holcomb. It's a classic rock machine, not a modern one. If you want a Holcomb, get a Holcomb. Just sayin... ;)

    Didn't read the rest of the thread, don't care.

    I need this shit in my life. Maple boards are life. Especially PRS, regardless of country of manufacture. Ideally, PRS CE-24 Floyd with mable broad.

    This is literally a regular SE-24 with a maple board instead. Literally the only difference.

    Dont they have satin necks as well now? Also is the bridge/mounting screw setup different now? I dont remember the SE bridges looking like these here

    I thought I'd hate these but that purple one is calling to me. What is a "wide thin" neck? Similar to a C24's "pattern thin?"

    It's similar but its wider at the nut. Basically, the SE's are still using the older neck shapes that used to be on the Core models (wide fat and wide thin).

    Too bad these are only limited to the UK. Otherwise I would snag the Purple one.

    Personally, I can't stand those headstock finishes. Why did they do that?!
