Both are within the similar price range although I have not yet played on a tremonti. I love the SE singlecut. Just wanted to know what you guys think would be the better buy?

They are very, very similar guitars, but of course it's a matter of personal preference. The Tremonti SE looks to have slightly more control over tone with the volume and tone for each pickup, and I think it looks a bit sexier. Does the Tremonti SE cost more, too? Feel-wise, they should be darn near the same I think. I don't know about any differences in the pickups or anything...

Anyway, I just got a PRS Santana SE (got it new, but it's not a 2007 model) and I absolutely love it. I think you'll be very happy with either of them.

Maybe Bish will have something more concrete to offer, he seems to be the biggest PRS lover around here. :D Though I am working to catch up...

Yeah the Tremonti is slightly more expensive than the SE Singlecut. I will have ot have a play on the Tremonti next time I am around one, I would prefer on with more than just a master volume and one tonal nob.

I have a Santana SE and have been advocating PRS around here for a while now. I don't know much about the Singlecut but the Tremonti is about the same as the SE. I think you'd be happy with either.

Of course, now you've got me sitting here thinking, "Yeah, that Tremonti SE *is* really nice looking... hmm..." :D

Off-topic: Pearl, you got pics of your Santana SE online anywhere?

I don't but I can take a pic and post one day soon. I'll post it in the "Pictures" thread. It's just like your but it's a gray/silver, something like a metallic grey, not a flat silver.

And stop thinking about the Tremonti if you have the SE. It's basically the same guitar with a variation.

I'm not exactly sure. I think the SE has a double cutaway and the Tremonti has a single cutaway. The SE has one volume and one tone control and the Tremonte has two volume and tone controls.

I wanted the double cutaway rather than more knobs.

Yes, the Tremonti is a single cutaway and four knobs to fiddle with. :D

You won't be disappointed! 8)

Oh to find that waiting by the tree :D Though i'm sure I read in your post about a guitar problem with the truss rod that it was being slated some what? Or had I misunderstood? I love the bridge on PRS guitars :D

That is one awesome PRS, Margaret. Lucky You.

Hope to play Black Magic Woman on a 24 fret PRS someday...

First off, that was my Fender Strat you must've read about, not the PRS. No problems with the PRS at all.

Second, it turned out to be a non-problem after all, I'm very happy to say. The Strat is doing very well these days. :D

P.S. Thanks, Rahul!
