Help me choose, CF. OK, so I think I'm going to treat myself to a PRS guitar for my birthday, I'm getting one of the SE models. Until recently I was in love with a flat black SE Standard, as seen here:
However, today I stumbled across a photo of someone's SE Custom in gray black maple finish, as seen here:
Yeah, that one's making it a tough decision, what do you think guys? I'm really, really
leaning toward the gray black one but I'd like input. Reason being, I think the flat black one would scratch easily and be hard to take care of (polish will not work on flat paint). I also like the uniqueness of the wood grain and the natural edge on that one, look close and you can see the line around the edge. The pickups will be changed from zebra to all black eventually, so yeah.
