PRS USA Mark Tremonti in Vintage Sunburst
The PRS Mark Tremonti Signature is one of the most loved guitars in the PRS catalog. Its beautiful singlecut design that has been finished off with a range of custom hardware has made this guitar a pinnacle of what a hard rocking humbucker loaded guitar can be.
Made In Maryland
Built in their top of the range Maryland, USA factory the Tremonti has been created under the perfect conditions with a mixture of both machine and hand manufacturing. This carefully crafted way of building guitars means that you get an instrument that is not only perfectly crafted to the mm but it has also had the care and attention of someone hand finishing and making sure this guitar still has that personal touch.
This carefully crafted guitar has had just as much thought out into materials as anything else PRS make. So with that in mind you have a mahogany body and neck which have been topped with stunning figured maple and rosewood respectively. This combination of woods gives off a full, thick and warm sound that will please a lot of guitar players.
It is not just about the sound though it is also the feel. The carved figured maple top and comfort cut mahogany body feel great both sat down and standing sitting just where you would expect a PRS to sit. The mahogany neck has a very thin PRS carve based off of the 'Pattern Thin' design though modified a bit to fit Mark's hands better this guitar feels great for chunky rhythms and soaring leads.
PRS like to make everything in house when they can and when it came to making the Tremonti it was no different. These pickups were custom designed to deliver crushing high gain tones in the bridge position and a rounded smoother sound in the neck position perfect for leads and cleans. Tonally these still have the classic PRS character just with a slight bit more bite so you can cut straight through a mix.
PRS don't just stop at pickups though. The PRS Tremolo that can travel both up and down for dive bomb madness works wonderfully with the PRS Phase III Locking Tuners to keep your guitar in tune no matter how mad you like to go. All of the hardware on this hardware is made in house so that you get the best guitar possible.
