Well, this guitar is the newest focus of my GAS. I keep thinking about getting a Les Paul as I haven't had one in over 20 years - but the spotty quality and astronomical prices of the Historics have me looking at others such as the Singlecut. Does it have a thicker tone than the other PRS'? How does the upper fret playability compare to the Les Paul's rather limited (to me at least) access? Lastly, please tell me about the playability and sound. Also, if you ever read Robb Report Collection Magazine I have 3 gear reviews in the December issue. A little self-promotion (someone's got to do it). happy Holiday to you all.
