    Most Yamahas are pretty damn flawlessly built. Perfect example of how to use technology for accurate, consistant results and humans for good QC.

    Although I must admit the PRS SE Soapbar II is pretty nice. I'd get one if they had a narrower neck. I just can't get along with PRS necks.

    My sig used to be "There is no such thing as 'best' when it comes to subjective matters such as tone".

    Bingo. For me, the SE is killer, course I'm not much of a strat guy.

    Gosh best for the money is such a wide open area.

    I will agree that the PRS SEs are killer guitars for the money. I bought my nephew one for Christmas. It played and sounded pretty cloe to a regular PRS. :eek:

    "Better build" does not always translate to the best guitar for you. I've played guitars that had marginal build quality that sounded killer. As with life, there are always compromises ;).

    Is it an either/or proposition with the Agiles? Either you love 'em or hate 'em?

    I played a SE SoapBar in a friends shop Saturday. Unfortunately, I didn't plug it in.

    I'm pretty much a tele guy but recently played a P90 guitar and love the crunch. The SE was also very light. Good for the 50 year old back and a nice price.
