Change PRS SE Custom 24 per ML3 BEA?

Hi, I have the ability to swap my PRS SE Custom 24 for a Ml3 Bea smoke. Personally I already own the ML3 Baritone Bea Crimson, and I am in love. I'd like to know whether to change the PRS for Chapman, whether it's really worth it or not much difference. Thank you!

I’ve owned a PRS SE (277 Baritone) and a few Chapmans (ML1-Pro and Bea Baritone). Both excellent guitars. But I’d agree with Ed lespaul, the Chapman costs a lot more. It has the Hipshot locking tuners, solid flamed maple cap and SS frets. The PRS would likely have a maple cap with veneer or it, no locking tuners, and nickel frets. Personally, I’d make that trade if it’s a straight swap.
