The PRS SE Paul's Guitar in Black Gold Sunburst is a versatile workhorse that can run the tonal gamut! From the singing, fat leads generated by the neck pickup in humbucker mode to the snappy cleanliness of the coil-tapped TCI voiced pickups, this guitar offers far more musical sounds than the average guitar! We have been beyond thrilled with the quality of these Indonesian Made PRS SE guitars. Seriously you have to play one to understand just how good they really are!
“The SE Paul’s Guitar is a great example of design, engineering, and teamwork. It’s as close to home as we could get inside of the SE Series, and I am very proud of it,” Paul Reed Smith.
The PRS SE Paul's Guitar has all the right core ingredients like a Maple Top on a Mahogany body, along with a mahogany neck that is topped with a Rosewood fingerboard. A Classic PRS fingerboard radius of 10" makes both melodic and chordal playing easy. A Wide Fat Neck Profile has a bit of chunk but it's by no means a 'baseball bat'. Paul's Guitar has a full-feeling neck, not a bloated one!
The SE Paul’s Guitar delivers a lot of “PRS,” starting with tone and versatility. The TCI “S” treble and bass humbucker pickups deliver a very pure, vintage sound. The SE Paul’s Guitar also features two mini-toggle switches between the volume and tone knobs. This setup allows players to put either or both pickups in true single-coil mode, which delivers the clarity and uniqueness of vintage single-coil tones in both single coil and humbucking positions. This is the first model to offer this style of electronics outside of the Private Stock and Core lines. Likewise, the PRS stoptail bridge is the same machined stoptail with brass inserts as spec'd on the Core Paul's Guitar.
“The Paul’s Guitar, like the Modern Eagle before it, has always been about Paul’s latest discoveries in guitar making. To bring this guitar into the SE Series, we knew the tone, functionality, and playability had to be right and had to be consistent,” said Jack Higginbotham, COO, PRS Guitars. “We feel this guitar offers a lot of value to players.”
