    Sweet! Played one at my lo al store, and just loved it. PRS puts out super instruments, period, but in terms of practical quality and just feel these are something else.

    There's nothing really to say except that it's a superb S-style guitar. I don't have a deluxe reverb at home, but the one I tried it through in the store made this guitar just sound superb. The vintage radius isn't hard to get used to and it never frets out on bends.

    Do you know if it's a 7.5 or 9.5? I didn't even know they made a S style.

    7.25. They’ve made several strat style guitars over the years.

    Do you like the vintage frets? The 2 necks I just picked up have them.

    Congrats on a sweet PRS. I am waiting on dealers to get sufficient inventories on an SE Paul's guitar so I can get a 15% discount. But then...I am patient.

    The frets on these are slightly taller than Fender reissue strats I’ve played.

    Wow, this is at once familiar but also newly PRS through and through. I'd say it is an idealized version of a vintage single-coil guitar! The attention that was paid to every detail sets this guitar apart. ;)

    That looks very sharp! PRS just makes awesome guitars. HNGD!

    Congrats!

    Color is almost exactly like a candy apple red '64 strat I sold several years back, it was a red over a gold.
