I tried one whilst on holiday in the US. Felt cheap. Crappy plastic tuners. Scarf joint. PRS sterility.

I might get one... LOL

And the headstock still looks a bit weird to me, if they released an SE version with those pickups though.... I've seen the pickups on sale for over $1000 USD on reverb, seems to be quite a lot of demand for them but PRS won't sell them individually...

Spendy!

Just emailed the guy that's selling the one I linked to. Just once though it'd be good to sell a guitar first...
