    Even if they sell for 499$ right now, my assumption is really that the prices would fall lower over time, once they're not the newest thing around anymore.

    If not, then obviously they're hardly going to be worth it compared to the Korean wmi ones.

    So PRS creates the SE line to be the entry-level, student guitars... the prices increase nearly 50% over a few years.... then they introduce the SE Standard line as entry-level student guitars... huh? I thought the first SE guitars were the entry-level guitars?

    I find this line as useful as drinking water for a fish.

    Well finally a PRS SE model with 24 frets. Until now the discontinued Mike Akerfeldt model was the only SE guitar with 24 frets. I like 24 frets. 24 frets.

    Because the SE CU24, Torero, Clint Lowery, Dave Navarro and Tim Mahoney only have 23 frets? :scratch:

    So these guitars should have hit the market by now? I tried looking for reviews but couldn't find anything. What is the consensus on these guitars?

    PRS SE Standard 24 review | MusicRadar

    Only review I've found so far. He claims it's not set up as well as a PRS S2, and the neck doesn't feel as thin, but it's $500 vs $1300.

    You don't reading comprehension? :fawk:

    He's talking about the SE STANDARD series, which was released very, very recently. The only people that have a hold of it are some UK stores, Thomann Sweetwater, and some small shops on Reverb. Andertons and MusicRadar are the only two reviews I can find.

    Exactly. Plus I already Google it anyway and the top search result was reviews about the same guitars you are talking about. The date on that thread was from 2009 so...

    yeah I tried and only found a premier guitar "review" and music radar one too

    and Rob Chapman video


    since they are the cheapest of all the range, there is a really high chance there would be a few in your local shop.

    In here they always have 2 or 3 models in one of those department/electronic shops. and I went to a local shop who stocks PRS and they had lots and lots of SEs and like 2 or 3 PRSs

    It was a little helpful. Thanks. I did notice he said that the action was a little high. Can the action not be adjusted at all I wonder?

    So, it's been a couple of years. Who here has tried one?

    Still interested in a Standard 22. Been thinking about grabbing one.

    I have played various Standards in stores. They seem fine to me. Not quite as nice as the Custom SE series, but could probably be as nice with some TLC. I kind of liked some of them better because of the plain look. Biggest issues were just strings high off the fretboard, too much neck bow, etc... I wouldn't have an issue buying one and taking it home and personalizing it to be great.


    I actually just got a Custom 24 SE, but played many Standards in the quest. I feel like the Customs are very similar, but have that little something extra... where they were set up better, and have things like binding, flame tops, etc... if you are into that sorta thing. However, you could probably get a Standard there also if you put some time into it.

    I mostly wanted a blue beveled-top Custom 22, which is why I was looking at the standards. :lol:
