Beautiful guitar with awesome tone. Its thin neck has great playability. I was surprised by how 85/15 's' pickups can finely produce both sparky single coil sound and warm humbucker tone. Mine came with Gauge 10 strings.
My god. This thing is more beautiful than the pictures can give justice to. The neck feels like I've been playing this guitar for years and the pickups are HOT. Dial back the volume for some cleaner tones, but the 85/15s sound superb. The trem system is stable, perfect for some vibrato but I'd avoid the dive bombs as it's a little too delicate. Comes with 9-42 gauge strings which are PRSs own, and they're fairly decent. If you're on the fence, just get it. It's the best guitar I've ever owned.
