    You did not mention the price, the guitar is good solid, I had a P-90 Les Paul that was similar, and it was my favorite guitar for many years, really depends if the price is fair to you.

    I love it
    I want one.
    I don't understand why someone would swap the parts on one though.
    PRS nuts are already compensated and the stoptails are adjustable for intonation as well.

    I have a early version Soapbar SE Singlecut and love it. It's lightweight, the neck is very comfortable and with the middle position (Hum-canceling) it sounds twice as big with alot a upfront presence (a good thing) and awesome P90 growl!

    Actually I had 2 SE Soapbars SC but had to sell one when money was tight last year, but this one will be one of last to go.

    The stoptail's are compensated for intonation but NOT adjustable. I put on a adjustable Tone Pro's on my SE only because I simply want to make a great guitar a perfect guitar. It seem to help but was not required.

    I love the look of that. Beautiful finish/color. Sure wish I had the $s right now to consider something like that. Need to sell some gear first.

    I should have said that they are adjustable at a macro level but not individually adjustable.

    If I had the dough I'd look into it. PRS singlecuts are sexy

    I always thought they looked cool but could never bond with them. Everyone I played seemed stiff and hard to play. They have a different scale length or something right?

    Pretty cool. Not sure how much I like the satin finish but that's just my opinion. Always good to have a P-90 guitar around.

    I'd say get it. I LOVE my singlecut satin. I bought it after trying numerous LP's and PRS doublecuts, and I just bonded with the singlecut satin immediately. It's a beautiful, fat, resonant guitar with warm cleans and screaming dirty tones. One thing I really like is that they carry the satin finish over to the back of the neck - it does not have the thick gloss finish like LP's and glossy PRS's do. I hate a gloss finished neck, so that was perfect for me.
