There are a couple other PRS models for sale that seem to be in stock.

You can either step down to a PRS S2 Standard Satin for $800 (no maple cap, pickguard mount hardware, satin finish) : https://www.musiciansfriend.com/g...5000001000

Or step up to a Core CE24 for $1500 (USA Pickups, flame maple top, bolt on neck): https://www.musiciansfriend.com/g...4000001000

The 85/15 "S" pickups on this are made in Korea.

If I recall. The S2 line has imported parts but is assembled at Maryland plant

The electronics and hardware are imported. The bodies and necks are made in the US factory in Maryland. The fretwork and neck joints are the same quality as PRS's Core lineup.

The CE24, with its US electronics, is the real gem in this sale.

I would say the LP Jr Vintage for $1099 is a great deal. Wanted that guitar for a while and never saw $400 off.

I just got one PRS CE 24 from Guitar Center. They matched musicianfriend price and they had it in stock. They were surprised that it was 500 off, since they never saw one with the type of discount (they didn't believe me at first). It is a beauty and totally worth it!

I've had this exact guitar for about 20 years now. Still plays and sounds beautifully after all this time. Can't recommend it enough.

Pretty interesting read to why PRS guitars aren't used by big musicians.

Recommended articles to read? John Mayer and Santana are pretty big musicians IMO.

Huh? Jimmy Herring, John Mayer, Santana, Tim Pierce, what are you talking about "big" musicians?
