(SOLD) Used Paul Reed Smith SE Torero Black Cherry
Paul Reed Smith SE Torero model, in slick black cherry over flame maple. This is the furthest PRS have really delved into 'metal territory', with a legit Floyd Rose bridge, active EMGs, jumbo frets and a deeper heel cut. It's got a huge amount of natural sustain; it just sings and sings. The deeper heel cut and neck-through construction are also a little smoother than the Custom 24s of the world, it's a breeze to move right up the neck. There's a couple of minor marks as described, but this is pretty close to mint condition. New street price on these rarely dips below $1350, grab a bargain and melt some faces!

Cosmetic condition notes: Very minor finish wear. There's a little play wear on the top above and below the strings, but it's barely noticeable. There's a pair of small marks on the back of the neck near the body join, and what looks like a minor glue mark on one of the machine heads. Overall, excellent condition.
Playing condition notes: Neck is straight, intonation is good, action is very low, in the 1mm region. The bridge is in perfect order with no issues. The natural balance and sustain is remarkable, it feels fantastic. Setup with 11/50s in standard tuning, easily switchable to lower tunings if required. Very good!
