Let met start off by saying the potential of the SE line of PRS guitars is pretty good for the price of the guitars. I purchased a Black Gold Burst Custom 24 from zZounds in march. I also replaced the stock tuners with SE locking tuners. I will start off with the pros for this guitar.- The neck feels good. I find a comfortable middle ground with the neck. It's roundish but not like half a baseball bat in my hand.- The guitar sits and hangs from a strap comfortably.- The weight is good.- Overall it is not a bad guitar.The Cons- The nut is absolutely atrocious. I use tens in standard tuning and they don't feel bad on this guitar, but the amount of work I did to the stock nut was ridiculous just to get the thing to stay in tune. With the kind of quality PRS puts into the looks of these, a 15 dollar nut upgrade should seem like a no brainer. The string height, even with the stock 9s, at the nut was a nightmare.- On the guitar I received, when the volume pot is maxed there is distortion. This is also an easy fix, but should I have had to fix it? I don't think I should have.- The pickups are OK. They will suffice for just about any music you want to play, but there are much better pickups. Again these things are replaceable and every ear is going to feel a little different about them.I know I am somewhat unfairly comparing the SE to the 96 standard 24 I used to own, in all reality there is no comparison between the 2 guitars, but I feel at this price, the least that could be done at read more the factory is a proper functioning nut and pots.
