Yeah - missing that single coil glassy sound and that sweet neck pickup. I have a unusual option on a store near by - a 25'' scale PRS DC-3. Man that guitar is sweeeeeet. Top quality no doubt but for 1399 I kept asking if I should get an AM Pro II or a old stock AM Standard and get on with it. The DC3: More of a poll: if you were shopping for a Strat, with a 1200-1400 EUR budget (the less the better) what would you buy?
