    Even though he owns a PRS SE 24 in Tampas Green, apparently he likes Harley Benton enough to buy one of their PRS clones.

    I've been waitin almost a month now for my Harley Benton... Should be here tomorrow or the next day... Can't wait, it's a semi-hollow Tele with P-90s... Of course, if the price on Squiers wasn't goin up, I wouldn't even have "strayed", lol...

    Maybe it's just me but the fretboard on the Harley Benton looks wide, like aircraft carrier wide, probably an optical illusion but flight deck is the 1st thing that popped into my mind. lol.

    I think you're right about the optical illusion. Binding always makes it look wider than it really is. Looking at the pic of him holding them up in front of the camera, the PRS looks wider to me.
    But, when you look at the end of the fretboard in relation to the poles on the neck pickup they look about the same.

    I don't know why, but every time I see binding on a neck my mind INSTANTLY jumps to "cheap"... Like I said, I have ZERO idea why... Most fretboards with binding are usually way more expensive... Maybe I played a super cheap, crappy guitar with fretboard binding in the past... But I even think about it every time I pick up my banjo which has binding... I have no idea where this negative stereotype came from... Lol... Just bein honest, lol...

    I tend not to buy cars with binding.
