    I picked this up a few weeks ago as an "early christmas present".
    This is the 2nd PRS I've owned but the first core, my previous being an S2CU24.
    I instantly got along with this one, the satin finish is silky, the action is low, and tuning/intonation is perfect.

    This is a wood library example and dealer run, with an ebony fretboard and headstock veneer.

    This was a demo model from sweetwater, with only a very minor surface imperfection on the top edge of the neck heel. Got it for a decent price with excellent service from SW.
    I never really gelled with gloss finish PRS' but this one really fits the bill.

    Love the color—really complements the top.

    so I just saw BTBAM last night and Dustie was playing one of his newer CE signatures. I spoke with him after the show and mentioned I was having a small issue with the volume knob on my guitar always rolling off a little without me knowing. He showed me the knobs on his signature and said specifically that is why he chose those heavier knobs.
    Anybody know where to get these specific knobs? I figured it give them a try, or maybe some rubber O-rings under my current knobs to provide some resistance..

    Love it! Colour reminds me of an Ibanez SZ 2020 I used to own.

    Wish PRS would do more stuff with a satin finish - I have a CU24 and HBII and am often tempted to take them to a luthier to get the necks deglossed.

    Awesome. Black plastics/hardware with the satin is A+

    I love the look of these knobs on a prs. Dont think I'd chose them for any other reason other than the aesthetics.

    in case anyone was wondering, i believe the knobs are "Tesi" knobs
    reverb store link: https://reverb.com/shop/tesiswitch
    they come in 18 & 25mm diameters and a handful of anodized colors.
