Vic @ LeftyGuitars.com only posted the following:

Some good news from PRS ... they are making the SE version of the Custom 24 as a lefty for the first time ever. They will be $829, with a beveled maple top with flame maple veneer, mahogany back, 25 scale length, 24 fret maple neck, rosewood fretboard, bird inlays, PRS patented molded tremolo, 85/15 S treble and bass pickups, volume & push/pull tone controls with 3-way blade pickup switch, PRS-Designed tuners, nickel hardware, gig bag and a "wide-thin" neck profile. Colors are fire red burst, tobacco sunburst, Trampas green and whale blue. I have a bunch of them on order in all colors and they should ship soon.

Thanks for the heads up - would like to see an image of all the colors, but that sunburst on their website is gorgeous!

I really don't have gas for any more electrics, but this is tempting...

BTW, are these made in S. Korea or China (or somewhere else)?

I wish it wasn’t a 24. But that is great news.

If I was in the market for a lefty, that's not a terrible price.

I'm not a burst fan but that one looks nice. I'd like to see the fire red burst. Also, lose the zebra pups.

Reviewing the other guitars on that site...:^O

$9,500 for a Santana signature? Seriously?

I dug through the PRS site and found these. There aren’t any colors that grab me. Not in the least.

I won’t be getting one.

I’ve got an Ibanez SZ520QM that fills this bill. Without the 24 fret neck.

Made by World Music in the ROK, IIRC.

The PRS SE line is perhaps the best value (good materials and parts, amazing build quality, playability, and great tone for the dollar) of any guitar line.

If you're trying to talk yourself out of getting one, I think you're failing miserably.

I wonder if I could mod one to make it a 22.

You could, but then you'd have to move the pickup--which is the whole reason for only 22 frets.

That neck pickup position is the sweet spot.

Leftee, you & I are in the same boat.

BTW, I found out that the $829 is a MAP price. Should be able to find one for around $750, 10% less than the MAP.

That is the whole reason I don’t care for 24 fret guitars a whole lot.

Eric, I'd rather have your Ibanez without the whammy bar.

I bought that off the used wall at GC a few years ago for little $. It had a set of EMG Hetfields in it. It now sports a pair of Parson Streets from StewMac. It is a great guitar. One of my favorites.

I'm not a big 24 fret fan, but since I have the 22 fret thing covered with 3 other HxH guitars, a(nother) 24 fretter is something a little different, therefore desirable. If the trem is up to USA PRS standards, that's a good thing, too.

I also really like that washed out Trampas Green (whatever "Trampas" means). And I don't mind the pickups on this one - not a fan of zebras, either, but on this one, it's black coils and crème rings, which I've had on other guitars.

It will have to fit into my budget down the road... I just hope PRS doesn't stop making these in 6-12 months--which they do all the time with their USA lefties; sometimes you can get one, sometimes you can't.

And you're right, Leftee - the price for that USA Santana lefty is ridiculous. It will sit there for a long time.
