I received this guitar on Friday, and put it through the paces all weekend. No buyer's remorse at all on this one. Oddly, the knob on the tone dial was missing! One chat session with zZounds has a new one on its way to me, but I've already ordered custom ivoryoid knobs that have the PRS birds on them. This will look much nicer than the clear knobs anyway.The action was a bit high, one small turn of the truss has me now at .009 at the 8th fret. The strings on it are 9's (I usually go with 9.5s), but I am going to leave this guitar with 9s, as coupled with the slightly high action, i find myself being a bit truer with my bends.Sustain and resonance? This guitar has it in spades, due to the semi-hollow body. The axe is also versatile, and excels at both clean and dirt. This is also my first guitar with a push/pull tone knob, and aside from the additional bit of hum (which is natural) from the single coil option, this is a cool feature. And the looks! The blue is a tad darker than in the photos posted on the site, and it's better for it. It's simply stunning. The finish was perfect on all edges, the fretwork is perfect, completely smooth edges. To conclude, you can't go wrong with this instrument. It's extremely limited, so if you are on the fence, grab one. Enjoy!
