Help me decide which PRS to sell

I know this isn't a guitar site so based solely on looks which one would you let go of?

For my fellow guitar players out there - I love both of these beauties but I rarely play electric as I am mainly an acoustic guy. I need to sell one to fund another acoustic that is coming soon. Both guitars sound and feel great. Both 2003 artist series with hardly any play time.

The Singlecut trem is more at home with blues and classic rock whereas the Custom 24 double cut is more modern voiced - although it can easily do classic rock/blues too plus metal. I've been able to coax some mellow jazz tunes from either guitar. They both sound really good. I've always loved the single cut look but the double cut is the original and quintessential PRS look - hence the dilemma. I love both but there can be only one.

Let me know your thoughts.

Based on looks only, I would sell the top pictured one.

For me, I've never liked sunbursts so I'd keep the second one. Just to keep a photography flavour to this thread here's a photo of my Martin D35 I took last week enhanced with Smart Photo Editor,

Thanks guys. Nice Martin Richard.

Two strikes against the Singecut. This may be more one sided than I thought.

I prefer the tone of the Custom 24. Yours is also a stunningly beautiful piece of wood. The flame on your single cut just isn't as special as the quilt on your custom.

3 strikes against the singlecut. Wow. Now that I think about it, the Custom 24 is the more versatile of the two tonewise.

Thanks Kozlok.

I know now why I married my wife. She says I can have another guitar providing its green! I have my eyes on a PRS similar to the 2nd above but in green. Pity Pentax don't do the K3 in green!

I'm gonna vote for the Custom 24, too. That's a gorgeous guitar.

seems they didn't even try to bookmatch the grain on the LP model. Guess that's how they do these days
