    Awesome! Hybrid hardware and black pickup wrings give it a nice edge, congrats on crossing that one off the list.

    Thanks guys!

    Used to own an SC250 AP and while it was an amazing guitar this Custom is something else...

    I was originally looking for an S2 CU24 / CE24 but when I stumbled on this one I just had to have it!

    I don't know how PRS does it, but they make some of the nicest looking instruments with the most beautiful tops and finishes.

    CONGRATS!

    I actually think i like yours (burst) better than mine. But i wish yours was a satin finish....gonna have to keep an eye out for that config.

    Looks stunning! Gotta love the HFS in the bridge too, makes the guitar sound like a friggin truck when tuned lower.

    Hell yeah! This looks incredible. HNGD!

    Strangely enough, I just received an Artist Pack CU24 yesterday too. Most resonant guitar I ever played. If yours is similar, I can only imagine how happy you are about it.
