    Why in the world is a guitar from an American musician a UK-only guitar? :lol: Is Black Stone Cherry a Big in UK kinda thing?

    I love everything about this except the color.

    Never thought I would see the day when a 57/08 is going into an SE. Such a nice pickup.

    I love the colour, it's very close to my P22. The whole thing really bridges the gap between SE and Maryland made. We have an SE body with quality components, I'd take one of these over any of the S2 offerings...

    That is really nice for an SE... almost tempted to buy one since Andertons ships to the US

    Never heard of this artist until now, but this is exceptional. I've been wanting something with a neck P90/bridge hum for a while, and I'm a big fan of the 57/08s.

    If this was released a year ago I would have bought it before I made my partscaster potentially. It'd be even sweeter if it was in tobacco sunburst

    Wow, without seeing the headstock you'd think this was S2 or better. Want.

    There is a Gibson les Paul a while back that had a p90 neck and hb bridge, I forget the name of it but it had a bit of a funky top...

    BFG. The top seemed to have only been run through the first CNC pass and then painted before being sanded back a little, leaving a very rough, rippled surface that I kinda liked, to be completely honest. It also had another non-standard feature for Gibson - a direct mounted bridge humbucker. I'd like to have seen this line expanded, but it wasn't to be.

    They seem to have done reasonable well over here, but can't say that I can name one of their tunes.

    Nicely specced guitar, though, and Chris Robertson seems to be a very decent chap too so all power to him!

    Their last 2 albums went to #1 on the UK Rock Charts. And I'm pretty sure they both cracked top 10 on the top album charts. So I guess they have a good following there.

    Man this is an SE that I would absolutely buy..
    Not for CAD conversion and shipping from UK kind of money, however :(

    Yup, for the total cost of buying from the UK I could buy a very good condition second hand core model which I just couldn't justify doing!
    Best thing we can do as consumers is email PRS and get on their social media profiles expressing interest in this guitar in other countries, I know I have been!!!

    Just seen these guys a few weeks ago with Shinedown, Halestorm, and Whiskey Myers. Put on one hell of a show. I'd buy this in an instant.

    Paint job looks waaay nicer in the video and I love how thick it is.

    Getting some serious gas.
