They've made a nice page where you can see the new models and demo video's;

http://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/blog/p..._2018_se_models

I'm liking the SE's more everyday. A friend of mine who works in a store ordered a SE and original PRS PU's for himself, the result is amazing.

PRS PU's are pricey and sticking them to an SE might not make sense to some but it might be one of the best sounding guitar I've ever played.

yeah, they look really nice, I'd have any one of those. The spalted looks great, if that was satin finish it would be mega cool. The zebra and metal foil are damn fine looking as well.
There's too many guitars that I seem to need at the moment.

Dat SE SVN looks really appealing.... if I hadn't to pay up school feeds. Would probably fall into the temptation.

My Custom 24 has the double bird inlays at the 12th and all of the inlays actually look like birds whereas on my other PRS guitars, some of them look like blobs like the Custom 24 on that page.

Ive lost track of your PRS's! I remember the Ace cool.gif what custom 24 with the double bird inlay do you have, was it a special edition or super posh one?

I always kinda liked the bats on the Paul Allender sig and also the hollow bird inlays, they are really cool.

I bought the Custom 24 in Amethyst quilt for my 50th birthday self treat. It was bog standard Custom 24 SE, the inlays were standard too. My favourite guitar at the moment and doesn't have much of a B nor issue. Amethyst is my birthstone and that was all the excuse I needed smile.gif I bought the blue flame 7 string and named it "Bob" after a friend had suddenly died. I'll post pics when I get chance.

ah yes smile.gif very nice collection. I do like the twin bird on the 12th. It looks really nice, I dont think its very common at least Ive not seen it on the PRS' Ive been looking at.
The chris robertson one does look good as well. I like the layout of the controls, a bit more LP like which Im used to.

TBH any of those 2018 models would be fine with me smile.gif

Thank Scott,

It's not just the double birds I like, I also like the fact that every inlay actually looks like a bird. On the others some are just a random shape, of course they aren't, they are based on actual birds, but things like a barn owl on a branch don't really work.

There is a chart somewhere, showing you which inlay is which bird. I think Paul too the picture, cut the outline of the bird out and used that shape as the inlay. It works fine when they are in flight but not when they are perched with wings closed.

Details are here http://www.prsguitars.com/index.php/blog/p...prs_bird_inlays but there is supposed to be an official chart showing the pictures that were used and the inlays next to them. That may be an urban myth though.

Cheers
