I have sinned too... I have been wishful to own a US guitar one day. But, they were out of my financial range. Then, I found out about the S2 Standard line wherein used ones are somewhat doable for me. Electronics and some hardware are from Korea, but the rest were built in the US alongside the higher priced PRS ones. I thought this was good enough for me! I was weary initially because I wasn't so convinced with the PRS Singlecut SE that I briefly owned. And so, here she is! $600 shipped with a good setup and new strings! From the good people at rEvolve Guitar & Music Shop in Bartlett, Tennessee, a PRS authorized shop, especially to Geoff, the shop owner... She is indeed beautiful and sexy in person! Push-pull tone pot for splitting the humbuckers but I don't have any need. I love the knobs! The low mass locking tuners are great! There's an area on the lower left with whitish streaks and spots. I see that it is where the forearm rests which probably is the reason. Any advice how to clean it? Played it for a bit and I have to say that it exceeds my expectations. Tremolo is awesome even after whammy abuse. After strapping it on, I now understand why they say a PRS is comfortable to play. I was thinking of replacing the pickups to US ones someday to make it more American, but I don't see the need. As I don't know how to describe sound in words, I will be making a video demo soon.
