PRS is FINALLY (!!!!) making a left-handed overseas guitar for us southpaws...it's been a long time coming; quite frankly I didn't ever think it would happen.<br /> <br /> So who here plays a righty SE - one of the standard models, not signature - and how do you like 'em? What upgrades have you made? <br /> <br />

I have an SE Singlecut. I haven't chaned anything but the strings so far but have finally decided the pups need upgrading. Had it a couple years now and gig with it. The wrap around bridge is great, intonation is nearly perfect. I was considering an American made one but my SE resonated just as good unamplified as any of the American ones I tried. I love the neck shape and size, modern C, and the finish is flawless. Just the pups need upgrading. I am considering some low output PAFs

I got a black PRS SE Soapbar2 last time I needed a reasonably priced guitar to keep in slide tuning. The only change I made was to swop the speed knobs for top hats. They looked better to me. I can't fault it and get compliments on the sound.

I've owned two PRS SE's over the years and they are very nice.<br /> <br /> I still have my PRS McCarty which is in a different league.

The only mod I did to my SE One Korina was to add a tone knob. The neck hurts my hand when I play it very long, not sure why I haven't sold it yet. It's my second SE, never really bonded with the first one even though there was nothing whatsoever wrong with it. Both have/had soapbar pickups.

I've had a PRS 245 SE for a few years now and occasionally gig with it. However, I've found the stock pups to be very underwhelming and quite muddy. I briefly considered upgrading them to Chris Robertson specs, but my motivation fell short. Finish , fit and playability are fine, and they're good value for money, but I don't think I'd miss mine much if/ when I sell it. <br />

I have a PRS SE Soapbar II (2x P90s) and it's completely stock. Great guitar, and a sort of fat neck. I also have a Bernie Marsden SE. It's basically a single-cut with a chunky neck, two volumes and one tone. Out of the box it was superb.

Mike,<br /> <br /> They’re terrible. Price it accordingly and I’ll buy it off you.

My SE guitar were part of the gear I sold on 2009-10 to keep my head above water. The SE One was my favorite and I'd like to have another. It was their take on a LP Jr. I liked the P90. I had an SE 24 fret as well but as above the PUs were not my faves.

They've updated the pickups, so it will be interesting to see what I think of them. The description of them (the 85/15 "s" Korean version of the USA model) sounds good, but the proof is when you plug in.<br /> <br /> Eric, go back to the Lefty Forum where you (we) belong! We'll talk about this over there (behind the dumpster in the alley)!

I have six electrics. Why do I suddenly have GAS for #7?

Because GAS has absolutely no relationship to the number of guitars currently in the fold... it has to do with the one you haven't acquired yet!

"I have six electrics. Why do I suddenly have GAS for #7?"<br /> <br /> Because you don't have a Gibson?! ;)

"Because you don't have a Gibson?! ;)"<br /> <br /> My Epi LP Custom Pro is close enough. :o)<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> I did swap out the pickups as well but the stock ones weren't really bad, I just can't help myself ;^)<br /> <br /> I ended selling it and for once got my money back (after putting the stock pups back in).<br /> <br /> Very nice instruments though...<br />

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