PRS Torero SE [Have G.A.S. Will Travel]

I've been eyeballing one of these in town for a bit. The one in the store really needs a good setup and my strings on it before I can get a REALLY good idea of how well we'll get along. I'd REALLY like to take it home for a week and get comfy with it, but stores don't really do that...ever.

I'm pretty sure it'll jive with me tonally (all my other guitars are maple neck-thrus with mahogany bodies, EMG's and floyds. I'd just like to hear stories from people who own them or have played them extensively enough to give a reasonable comparison to mid-range ibby models (all mine are the RGT42 variants). let's keep it to personal experience only, please.

Pics for people who have not seen it (because it's sexy).

I own two of them, and the other guitarist in my band has one as well. I love them. They play great, sound great, stay in tune really well and hold up on the road with temperature and climate changes. I also love the neck shape, and I came from playing ESP/LTD MH's and Ibanez RG's (year 2000 MIJ's with Wizard I and II necks). I highly recommend the Torero. I play in drop B and they handle it with ease. Here are some pics and links that showcase mine :

I installed the black hardware on the red one.

On a side note, my band is giving one away in a contest that is running with the pre-orders of our new cd:

I love mine, I changed the pickups out cause I don't like EMG's but even with the EMG's the guitar sounded incredible and of course I love the way it plays.

amazing guitar! really really thin neck, so if youre used to Ibanez thats perfect! the only problem I have with this guitar is that its pretty heavy but Im used to super light guitars (hufschm(I)d and ltd ec-256). Its awesome, has great substain and plays great with low action so seriously if the weight isnt a problem, go for it 200%.

I really like the Toreros, it's got a really nice, solid, well made feel to it (as most SE's do) and it sounds nice and fat. The trem is very good, very stable, the whole guitar has a nice weight - not schecter heavy but not crazy light.

Very cool guitars that I can imagine are very easy to get on with for most people.

Got questions about anything I've said, done or do? How about pickups, tech, music production or just anything! Check here and ask away!
