    Did you ever pick up a PRS Santana SE? If so, what did you think?

    Not yet; I'm still trying to sell my Fat Tele to finance the SE.
    No bites so far; guess it's time to cut the price some more.
    One of these days I'll learn my lesson, snowball futures will
    plummet in value, and the pope will find somewhere else to
    defecate.

    Still, you'll probably learn your lesson before I learn mine.

    I may spring for an SE. I've got a couple of Suhr HBs I want to slap
    in a guitar, and I want a two-HB trem. If I do, I'll let you know
    how it plays, sounds, etc.

  4. Richard,

    This guitar doesn't have a trem but you really should check out the Godin
    Flat 5. Amazing guitar...

    Make sure it's the version you want or you may end up with the wrong pu route, Richard.

    I've seen them at Manny's and at Rudy's in NYC. They are extremely
    nice, and an incredible bargain. I'm sure I'd love a Flat 5 X and an
    ACS something-or-other.

    The guys I play with occasionally (the old band, minus the sax
    player) tell me they really prefer humbuckers and a trem. We're
    getting together to play sometime in Sept, and by looking at a cheap
    PRS w/trem I'm simply trying to accomodate them in the cheapest way
    possible.

    Man, do I ever miss playing with other musicians.

    Please do; it looks like my Tele will take a while to sell, so I
    have the time to wait for your feedback on the SE. I don't
    understand why the local Guitar Center never stocks the SE; they
    sell a lot of guitars in the $500 price range and I'd think
    they'd want to have a PRS in that range. They stock a lot of
    PRS but I've yet to find an SE there. If/when they do, I'll
    demo it. It will be interesting to try to get a good earful
    while competing with the wash of GC noise: the two dueling
    music videos they always play, the wankers thrashing at high
    volumes on Marshalls, and so on. I usually try to be polite and
    quiet, but since my interest in the SE is purely as a rock
    whammy machine, maybe I'll take along my favorite crunch pedal
    and plug into something with rude volume capability, like one of
    those monstrously loud Dual Professionals, and crank the snot
    out of it. Maybe that'll get a reaction from the
    too-cool-to-make-eye-contact salesdoods. LOL at the thought of
    it!

    If you're looking for a cheap platform with trem + 2 x HB, you
    might also look at the OLP MM1 ($199). I plan to demo one of
    these just for grins, but it might prove to be a good buy for
    the low cost. I don't need a lot of quality, since I'll only
    use whammy now and then, and will play my Les Paul the rest of
    the time.
