"Because you don't have a Gibson?! ;)"

My Epi LP Custom Pro is close enough. :o)

From what I've read, it's the same specs as a Gibson but assembled in China. The Probuckers are spot-on. If I held a Gibson, I don't know if I could tell the difference.

Like others have said, if you like the neck, they're very good value and nicely crafted.

I had a 2006 Singlecut I bought used but eventually found the neck to chunky for my liking. Mine was a "Wide Fat". There are *some* SE models that are wide thin though.

I did swap out the pickups as well but the stock ones weren't really bad, I just can't help myself ;^)

I ended selling it and for once got my money back (after putting the stock pups back in).

Very nice instruments though...

I had a 30th anniversary Custom 24. Replaced the nut with a tusq XL and the pups with Dimarzio 36th anniversary PAFs. The neck was a bit chunky for me and i seemed to like my Strats and Tele better.

Gave it to my son for his birthday last year along with my champ 40. He always wanted a Les Paul. Say's he doesn't want one anymore. He loves that PRS.

Now i miss it and will be getting another SE or maybe even the S2.

I've got an SE One Korina. I liked the P90 but have noisy power so put in a P90-sized humbucker. It's a fantastic guitar!

The current prices are high to me but they are high-quality instruments. I'm just jaded because they used to be quite a bit less.

Definitely worth a try.

This is why I come here... group support! :^)

Foggy - the S2's have a different neck profile (Pattern Regular) which I believe are slightly less chunky than the Wide Fat so they might be a good fit for you.

I've never played an S2 though. They're prices here are just bit beyond my budget.

Thanks for the info Mick, I might try one of those S2s.

Just got myself a 2013, Santana SE.
It's got the wide fat neck which I love.
Couldn't be happier. As the owner of a Les Paul traditional, a Hwy1 Strat, Std Telecaster, Epiphone Sheraton 2 I find I'm playing the SE almost non stop.
I cannot fault it.

Mine will arrive tomorrow. The only real concern I have is the "wide thin" neck spec. But I get along with most necks except super thin wizard style.

I like the SE "wide fat" neck carve, but it is a handful (more than the Gibson "58-rounded"s I've played). But then I like 'em chunky. I even liked the neck on a Slvertone 1427 I had and that was the fattest neck I've ever run into. Flat, thin necks always make the thumb of my fretting hand ache.

Build quality of the SE Singlecut (2 X P90) I had was excellent: a platform worthy of modification. Electronics were the short suit, but that's remedied easy enough.

My 245 has the "wide thin" neck. It doesn't feel overly thin to me. Not as thin as my 1960 LP Classic anyway.

I've had several PRS SE's...including, like Peegoo, the SE Bernie Marsden ( twice). The Bernie, hands down, was one of the best guitars I have ever owned; I just couldn't get my head around the three knobs vs four. Absent that, I'd still have one.

I recently picked up an SE Zach Myers. It's a nice guitar, but I think the SE Chris Robertson (Blackstone Cherry.) model is more to my liking with a P-90 neck and humbucker bridge.

I've had an SE One like walshb (even stole his idea for adding a tone control). Not sure why I sold it, but given my growing love for my Les Paul Junior and the single P-90 layout, walshb and I may have some business to discuss later.

I bought one of the Soapbar singlecuts back in 2003 or so.

For the money it's hard to do much better.

Had a PRS Santana SE. It was ok but after playing a friends PRS Mcarty it was hard for me to warm up to it. I could have gotten a lemon

I have 2 SE's - an SE Semi Hollow w/ Soapbars and an SE solidbody w/ Soapbars.
Both are great sounding, full time gigging instruments; I love soapbars.
The Semi Hollow had a problem w/ fretboard finish staining my fingers, it took a lot of cleaning w/ lemon oil, etc. but it's fine now.
