Somewhere I read/saw a video that each of the foreign made SE's are inspected/reviewed for QC and playability at the Maryland PRS factory before being released to retail.

Throughout the 'net there are many comments about quality control improvements for the SE's.

PRS SE models are ALL made in Korea and FWIW, can stand up against any brand in the same price range or even double the price range for fit and finish. Most SE models are sub $700 and are worth every penny. I own a Tremonti SE which only cost $525 and the quality is that of a $1500 guitar.

Asian PRS and Les Paul

I have both a Custom 24 SE and a Epiphone Les Paul 1960 Tribute Plus. The PRS is made in Korea and is a great guitar. The Epiphone is made in China but has USA hardware including Gibson USA 1957 pick ups, Grover locking tuners, switch craft switch, mallory caps, etc.

Both of theses guitars are incredible I got the PRS new for 480.00 and the Epiphone new form sweetwater for 570.00.

Both of these guitars compare favorably to my American Special Strat.

Just about any guitar can be used for blues, everything from the flying V, to Teles, to Strats, Les Paul and PRS have been used by the greats.
