    Picked this up like new on Ebay. Flawless guitar. Beautiful top, the pics don't do it justice. I know it's not a core model, but it's a significant upgrade in feel and quality from my PRS ZM SE (which is also amazing).[​IMG]

    Gorgeous. I'm in the market for one of these myself.

    Nice score. Looking for more comments on how it's better than the Myers SE.

    As far as the sound, I would say they are pretty equal, just a little difference due to the semi-hollowness of the Zach Myers. The biggest difference for me is the neck. Although technically they aren't much different - the S2 is listed as a Pattern Regular and the SE is listed as a Wide Fat - the S2 just feels smoother and a little easier to play to me. The locking tuners are a nice touch on the S2 and the finish is a little fancier than the Zach Myers. Aside from that, it is my understanding that they are both made with Korean electronics, although the S2 is assembled in Maryland. Maybe it's just the newness of the S2 that has me loving it more at the moment, but there's just something about that neck that seems to draw me in, and overall it just feels a little more solid in my hands. Don't get me wrong, I still love the ZM and would never part with it.

    Nice guitar. I really like the blue crab smokeburst on the PRS S2 models. I came very close to picking up an S2 custom 24 in that color but I couldn't let go of the Strat I was playing at the time. Would still like to pick one up though.
