    Man.. those spalted maple veneers, the matte finishes, and most of the colors look SO damn good.

    My bad. I guess it's just the angle from the first pic. PRS finishes always look good regardless... gloss or matte.

    That Core 24-08 looks great. The 408 is such an under appreciated model.

    Prs understands innovation.

    Robot tuners, overdrive circuits bad

    Mini toggle switches. Very good.

    And a 26.5" 7 string SE production model? Nice!

    Is the 24-08 the only new addition to the USA core line? I would love a 24 fret 594 of some kind, though fully realize that I shouldn't hold my breath.

    The 24-08 has had a lot of Wood Library examples last year (I couldn’t resist one…).
    Smoke that indicated fire perhaps?

    Great to see it available as an official Core model now.

    I hope the SE SVN is popular. A core version of that would be lovely.

    They gotta stop woth the cream colored zebra pickups though. I suppose they look ok with certain guitars, but they dont need to be on every single SE.

    Also, why no maple fretboards?

    As the owner of a Wood Library Custom 24-08 they made a great choice in making that a core model. The thing is so versatile.

    I love the lack of the giant SE on the headstock. Don't like how the old models scream "I have a cheaper model!"

    Actually, was this changed earlier? Don't keep up with PRS, this was just the first thing I noticed.

    Agree!

    The SE head-stock logo changed on the 2017 models.

    Anybody else check out the SVN demo video? Maybe it was just the amp, but that tone sounded terrible...

    Not a fan of the new colors, I like the new models though.
