    yeah I’d love one. I don’t have anything like it yet. I bet it’s well over a grand though.

    If they made a SE Archtop, I would be in BIG trouble! I liked the HBII I had, but not enough to keep it. The SE might be a winner for me though.

    yeah they’re not cheap here either. But the Hollowbody I bet will be quite a bit more. I want one though. I’ve already got a CU24 SE Roasted Maple on order as well.

    I’d want a 24 fret hollow body. But only because I’ve already got a hbii

    I’ll probably get one of these se’s as backup to my core....as soon as I finish buying all the used prestige’s in Chiba.

    That Hollowbody looks pretty sweet!

    I wonder how much the cost of the SE's would go up by if the locking tuners were just added as standard? Can't be that much surely..?

    Im still bummed I couldnt go for an hbii in white, all spruce.

    The HBii is one of my "once Im 40, maybe" guitars. Life is going to get nuts between now and then :lol:

    Still definitely going to try the SE if I see one.

    • SE Hollowbody Standard $999
    • SE Hollowbody II $1,149
    Not bad, every PRS SE I've come across has been among the best imports I've played. And it's downright a bargain compared to the new Indo-made Strandberg neck-throughs that are like $3k. :eek:

    Also, the McCarty tobacco standard might be better looking than the flame top versions.

    Oh and here's the SE Locking Tuners, $95 ain't too bad. https://us.prsaccessories.com/collections/tuners/products/prs-se-locking-tuners-set

    yes, I am aware. I’ve seen a few PS ones that are 24, I’ve just grown so accustomed to using that space I nearly “need” it.

    I'm assuming non-maple top (standard) va maple top (II), or non-figured vs figured.

    Basically. Std. has mahogany back and sides and the II has a maple top and back with mahogany sides. Same as the core line in this aspect.

    I really like how the burled ash model looks. I generally dislike the carve of the SE series tops compared to the US models but the burled ash really makes the most of it.

    These look killer, been wanting a hollow body for a long time. This might have to come live with me.
