PRS CE24 in Burnt Amber Smokeburst. Love this guitar. Easy playing satin neck. Superb workmanship, including the fretwork. Wide range of great tones. The only thing I dislike is the size of the strap buttons. They're way too big. It took me 10 minutes and I worked up a sweat getting a strap on, lol, but I'll take care of that tomorrow by installing strap locks. I think she's a beauty!

Beautiful, Mike!  That is one of my favorite PRS finishes.  Enjoy that guitar a long time.

That's a beauty Mike. Congratulations! I have an SE 24 that came quite unexpectedly in one of those Sweetwater closeouts. It plays so easily and feels so sweet.  I plan to eventually investigate Fenders and Gibsons, but only because I'm adventurous. My two PRS guitars are sweet. Enjoy.

Beauty!  

Maybe just the photo but the the fretboard looks super wide.  Illusion?

Good call on straplocks IMHO.  Are you a Schaller or Dunlop guy?  Something else?

Just an illusion I guess as the fretboard is standard. 1 11/16" at the nut, 2 1/4" at the body.

I use Schallers. The screws on the new model Schaller S Locks are built into the strap buttons and are quite a bit shorter than the button screws that came on the guitar. I was fortunate to have two old model Schaller buttons, so I used those with the screws that came with the guitar and it's good to go.

Yeah, I'm a Schaller guy also and I'm not sure the new Schaller studs are an improvement. I do like the new style for the strap cup part.  They seemed like a nice update over the older ones I have on my guitars/straps.  

Congrats again on the new axe.
