Went gear hunting today. At one junction, the guy suggested I give a Paul Reed Smith guitar Soapbar SE a try.
It had 2 "soapbar" pickups, which, after reading online a bit, are P-90s. The guitar was very nice, very nice sharpness on the treble pickup... Very clear sounding too...
This is the guitar: http://www.prsguitars.com/sesoapbar/index.php
Anyone played it? Would recommend? Any known issues I should be aware of?
Previously, at another store a guy had offered me a HSS PRS for 40k which was utter shit... I was hence apprehensive about this one but was pleasantly surprised.
BTW I noticed that mains hum can really kick the crap out of single coil pickups... I need to check my power lines at home before buying single coil based guitars, that's for sure...
I also played a bunch of other guitars, liked some of them too... Right now I'm considering this one against a couple of others... Some knowledge please.
