Overall: Best playing, best sounding, best built guitar I've purchased in many year. I own several top of the line guitars, American Deluxe Fenders (2: 1 Strat, 1 Tele), Richie Kotzen Tele, and a Gibson Les Paul Standard. This PRS blows away my LP. In fact my LP will be sold now. Between my 3 Fenders and this there is no need for anything else. It is gorgeous to look at, mine is Violin/amber burst. It plays like silk and the sound via either or both pups, dirty or clean, is second to none. From blues to screaming rock n roll. I have played this through my Vox amps, my Blackstar and my Egnator and the tones I get from this ax are killer.

Overall: This guitar is everything you need it to be. The stock pickups sound fantastic and the coil tap is great for more versatility in your sound. I love the simplicity of their cnc work on the S2 line as well. I have a core custom 22 as well and I have actually come to prefer the S2 body and weight to the core original. Of course the core guitar is much more visually stimulating, but the S2 is a beautiful workhorse guitar. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

Overall: The guitar is absolutely awesome. The only thing I did besides change the strings to my preferred set was put a trem block on it. Only for subjective reasons though. The trem sounds awesome, feels smooth and plays great. I just don't like trem! Pickups sounds incredible and you really get the feeling and quality of the PRS Core line with this guitar. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
