GAS attack

the one I left with was an SE Custom 24 (a 2019 limited edition in bilious green with roasted maple neck).

The neck is just a joy to play and is what sold me on the guitar (and ignore the colour).

 

C’mon, you know the rules, photos or it didn’t happen.

Sorry Skinz, but that looks like a Wickes melamine kitchen worktop that's been glued on and polished. 

The rest of it looks nice though 👌 

No worries, it is a bit bilious.

From what I can work out, they only did a roasted maple neck in the SE range in this colour so it’s not like I had any other options - but fortunately, I don’t give a stuff about the colour, it’s just a dream to play. 😁

Call me a weirdo if you must, but I actually quite like it. Not convinced it goes with the fretboard hue if I'm honest, but whatevs...

 

Er, okay.

Weirdo.

I’m not a massive fan of quilted finishes or highly-figured grain anyway but in fairness the combo probably works better in the flesh than pictures.

The good thing is, I only have to play it and don’t have to look at it 😁

Quite.

They’re very lovely as pieces of furniture or as art but I can take or leave them as guitars

*Sigh*

This forum definitely needs an iniquitous place to hang out. :/

Charming, I’m sure.

But yes, I agree. We need more iniquity around here. Or… what’s the opposite of iniquity? Perhaps there’s scope for an equal and opposite? Less militaristic and more hippy-like?

And where’s your NGD post? Or are you keeping it to yourself?

Haven't had one of those for a while now (the custom Tele is from 2013, and is posted somewhere or other around here). Tell you what though, I could post some picks of my last NGD. Two years ago if memory serves, but who's counting?

1. Did I need it? No.

2. Have I used it in anger? No.

3. Will I ever actually make any remotely worthwhile music with it? Who can tell?... Probably not though.

4. Is it nice to look at? I think so, but hang around and judge for yourself...

If that doesn't qualify it as a vanity purchase then I don't know what does. xD

Give me a while to wind up the camera and I'll post up some pics. (I'm assuming there's an NGD thread around here somewhere...?)

I think that edge of 'artificial' look is why I quite like it! Nice to see a maple board on this sort of thing for a change, too.

Update: I've just now posted some piccies of my most recent acquisition on the NGD thread:

I can sell you a set of PRS Mira pickups...a much cheaper way to release the gas.

That’s a kind offer but my GAS is satisfied for the moment (we’ll, I’m after a new synth but guitar-wise I’m sorted). The bilious green Custom 24 is a keeper and I no longer need a Mira 😁

What Ez said… 😁

The more I play it, the more I fall in love with that neck. I have another PRS (the Hollowbody) which has a regular rosewood fingerboard and a slightly different scale length and that’s also very nice but the roasted maple on the 24 is just fantastic. I don’t know if all Custom 24s are the same or if it’s a characteristic of the roasted maple, but whatever it is, it’s lovely.

Just a shame about the puke-bowl colour but even that’s growing on me
