After much deliberation over several PRS models including SE, CE and Custom 24's and Paul's guitars I pulled the trigger on this model as soon as it was announced as it incorporated the best parts of both guitars. I am still getting used to a lighter string gauge than I use on my Les Paul but the advice I was given regarding changing string gauges has proved to be spot on and I am very happy with my purchase. It plays great, sounds fantastic and the coil splitting provides a lot of versatility. Tremolo arm is a bit stiff but I am sure it will loosen up. I have been advised to contact customer support just in case which I will do. As a first foray into the world of PRS this has not been a disappointment. Starting to wonder if the Custom Shop 59 Les Paul I'm saving for might become a Wood Library Custom 24.
