I found a nice Whale Blue PRS SE on Reverb at Dave's Guitars for a great price. They had it listed as excellent condition, but it still has the plastic on the pickups and back covers. It has a dusty headstock so I'm guessing it hung around the store too long. I got it for $260 less than a new one. I couldn't resist. It came in its gigbag and goodies.

The neck was a little too flat (no relief) but a tweak of the truss-rod fixed that.

I actually like the neck. The width is great. I don't mind that it's thin.

It's getting new pickups - Toneriders. An A2 in the bridge and an A4 in the neck. But I pretty-much knew that going in.

Love it!

Are you getting zebra pups? I think it would look classy with all black.

Yes, Zebra. I was actually attracted to this color guitar because of the cream rings and zebras.

The stock pickups are ok. I’d just like something a little more vintage-sounding.

You're old. Then vintage. Then good!

Very nice. And putting in those new pickups will give you the opportunity to "fix" the wonky wiring.

Yep!

I’ll change the pots too. Just because I have nice CTS specimens in the bin.

I've always wanted a PRS. From what I've read, the MK Patriot Custom is very similar, so that scratches my itch. Maybe one day I'll still pull the trigger.

I bet they are made in the same factory.

I love my MK ‘53. It’s a great guitar for sure.
