"New Guitar Order Day"<br /> <br /> I just pulled the trigger a couple hours ago on the PRS SE Custom 24 lefty in the Trampas Green. <br /> <br /> Sweetwater had 4 of them to choose from in that color... I've liked that color since I saw it, and after looking at the other three colors, it still was my favorite (the Whale Blue is nice, too). I chose the lightest one - but I also liked the wood on it best (both front and back).<br /> <br /> I do wish these had either a 5-way switch like some of the USA models, or had separate single coil taps (one on the volume control, one on the tone); sometimes those extra "mixed" tones are more interesting than the straight single coil and humbucker tones. <br /> <br /> The only thing I'm really not crazy about is the unfinished maple headstock, but that's really minor - I do like being able to see the mahogany back (versus the others that are all either tinted or black).<br /> <br /> The guitar will arrive Monday... so a review will be coming soon!

Great Mikey,<br /> <br /> cant wait to hear what you think of it.<br /> <br /> the trampas green is the best colour of the lot.<br /> <br /> if i didn't just pre-order a lefty gibson double cut in tv yellow i might've jumped on one of these.<br /> <br />

"Very nice! Congrats! Looking forward to your review." <br /> <br /> Of course you are, Eric! You're thinking you'll probably be able to buy it from me in about a year at a nice "used" price!<br /> <br /> ;^)

One of these (in this color) would look pretty nice sitting next to the SE (fortunately, I don't need another Tele for sure!):<br /> <br />

Cool! 'Trampas Green' sounds like a great worship guitar color.

Well, rats. Now the guitar won't be here till Tuesday. I had to call them and confirm my address since I've moved since I last made a purchase from them - they wanted to make sure it wasn't a bogus sale. <br /> <br /> And, they said Fed-Ex only delivers Tuesday - Saturday, so it wouldn't have been arriving on Monday anyway, even though that's what I was originally quoted. ??? <br /> <br /> Tick, tock, tick, tock...

What did I sell you Richard? I forget. <br /> <br /> I miss the SG, Mike. <br /> <br /> I remember the Godin. It’s long gone.

Leftee, it was a green Strat Squier that you drop shipped to my cousin’s daughter in New Orleans. She loves it.

Yeah, the Strat you traded me for the SG is long gone, too - don't miss it, as I have my "custom" Warmoth Strats; really hard to top those. <br /> <br /> One has an old set of American Standard pups in it that sounds just fantastic; another has the set of Rumpels you (Eric) sold me - also fantastic in a different way, and the third has a set of Bill Lawrence noiseless pickups that sound very good, and serve a different purpose (being noiseless for certain situations).<br /> <br />

UPDATE:<br /> <br /> Got an e-mail confirmation last night of my order - this says the guitar will arrive TOMORROW, Nov. 11th!!! I'll keep tracking to confirm that, but this is very cool; I'll have more time to check it out than I would on Tuesday...<br /> <br /> Keep y'all posted...
