Value For Money : Excellent Audience: Anyone
I bought it after reading enthusiast comments by people who’d bought it before I did… so no need to add too much (just go and see the website of the well-known German online retailer that sells this brand), but in short PRS had better watch out, for such a price the result is just incredible…

The single shortcoming I've found is the tremolo arm which wouldn’t stay in place, the hole seemed too big so I asked on the retailer’s website what to do (they didn’t know what to tell me – too bad...).
In the end, I found the answer by myself when setting the guitar again as for string height, vibrato (unfastened the springs, the six bridge screws, truss rod and so on): the tremolo arm gets blocked using a small BTR screw which can be accessed through the black rear part by pushing the bridge and vibrato forward! (the screw can’t be seen as it’s hidden in the vibrato’s hole when in normal position).

For the price, the finish is really high-quality... It wouldn’t blush in front of the “original”, so in the end this guitar is plain magic!
