PRS SE Soapbar II " LEGAL ".. YES !!

SoapbarII

Hi!! Im new to this forum, and finally made a move to getting a PRS.Not much of a high-end buyer,but i know what i like/need for im a hobbyist that plays in band from time to time.Im looking for a starter model.Am quite attracted to the SE Soapbar II model.

What are the popular finish amongst the PRS SE Soapbar II. I'm leaning towards the Sunburst ( which probably require more finishing touches.) or the Antique White??

Tried one out today ( SB fin. ) Man!! What gem of a rocker.This will be my first PRS ever, yet this is the model that hooked me in line and sinker.( probably not the last either.),it spoke to me tonally/feel/fit across the board, now i just to decide which color of finish and im a happy camper.:dude

p.s.,any advice/comment would be helpful and appreciated.Glad i found this site/forum for i know you fellas will always help out " NEWBIES " like me.

Thanks and Peace!!:dude

If you loved the tone on the one you played, grab that one. No
2 will sound identical. Don't worry about the color, base your
buying decision on the tone and playability of the instrument.
The Antique White one will sound and feel different to some
degree as no 2 are exactly alike.

Hope this is helpful to you. Good luck with whichever you
decide to go with.

CliffC +1. If it feels and plays great that is the one to go with. Just play a couple of others to be sure another doesn't feel better.

I found out that the price for the 4 finish are all the same, i figure since the Sunburst has more to show ( wood that is ),It would be a better choice and cost extra,glad i got a couple of answers to my question.Thanks Fella's !!,greatly appreciated.Would the AW finish age well in the long run??,I'm wondering if it would be NITRO or POLY??:confused:

Peace!!:dude

They use a poly finish, so fading or color changing over the years should be minimal. All the colors look great to me.

I say grab up that sunburst while you can. I saw one in that finish locally and it was a great looker. Played and sounded great too. I was going to get one, but decided on a new amp first. Decisions, decisions.

The T-Burst seems to be a favorite amongst traditionalist.But then again the Antique White just stands right out there for attention.I cant decide, i know they will sound similar in almost all ways.The finish are just that good i presumed.:confused:

Congrats on your new guitar!

These are fantastic guitars and I don't just mean for the money!
They hold there own with high$ American made guitars.

I have a Cherry Soapbar II. I changed to covers and switch tip to cream and the knobs to amber.

Let me think abou it.
I might need them if I ever sell the guitar. People get picky about not having original parts.
