    Looks appreciably better without the waterfall of barf quilt top.

    I'm not going to trade in my standard SVN, but if I was still looking I'd get that natural one in a heartbeat. my S2 standard is the satin model and it just feels amazing. I'll keep an eye out for that natural one to try it out (if I dare...)

    Well you have to consider the alternative...HB Core model is around $4k and any other core model for that matter is pushing $3k+.

    Could be worse, the newest Indo-Strandbergs are approaching $3k. :eek:


    It looks like PRS are also making the Dusty Waring CE into a standard model (instead of just limited edition) with a couple of additional finishes. Wonder what effect it will have on the retail price?

    Oh damn! To be honest, I'm more interested in this than the SE7. I wonder if the price will be cheaper or the same.

    As much as I normally like walnut, that looks boring af. I guess I was smart holding out and never grabbing a Waring because that blue burst is HNNNNNNNNNG

    Might have to grab a walnut model. Been wanting a 26.5” 7 and this is perfect. Other than changing the Nut and adding locking tuners, the 6 string version is great.

    If the Holcomb SVN were 25.5" I'd jump on it like a motherfucker! The blueburst Waring though.... my bank account might be in danger!

    I probably wouldn't buy based on the scale length being so long, but that walnut one really does look nice.

    Really stoked to see the Dustie model getting a proper release.
    I imagine that both limited runs went really well.

    Finally!

    But now I don't know whether to get the Holcomb Burst or the Walnut.

    Also those Dustie CE's look pretty sweet.

    It's a lottery with the burst I guess. When the 6 string version came out, I saw several pictures and videos with very pleasing and nice tops that were nothing like the "stock" one, if you know what I mean. And the price is pretty good I guess. Big part of it are the signature pickups which are really good in my opinion, I really liked them. Eh now I kinda regret getting a strandy because I was waiting for this to came out. So based on my experience with the 6 string ver. I can totally recommend this axe and 26.5" scale is a really nice touch.
    You can't really go wrong with the signatures from Periphery guys. Well, unless it's an Invective..

    High end PRS' have some of the most gorgeous tops I've seen, but their less expensive models tend to be a bit hit or miss. We had one of the most amazing Holcomb tops in my local shop but I missed out on it, and all the ones I've seen since have been kinda bland.

    It's interesting to use the 'compare' on Sweetwater to see just how varied the colours and wood quality are.
