The SE Allender guitar in purple is a new finish for 2011.
This SE Signature Model is designed with Cradle of Filth guitarist, Paul Allender, in mind. Built to be played raw, the SE Paul Allender has a Mahogany Body, premium ebony fretboard and is fitted with EMG 81/89 pickups. The PRS designed tremolo lets you rock hard, and unique Paul Allender bat inlays complete the awesome look of this burst-finish guitar.
Here's what SE say about the Paul Allender Signature Model
"More metal than your gran's left hip." - Paul Allender
Paul Allender, lead guitarist of Cradle of Filth, is no stranger to the PRS SE Signature lineup. Paul started playing PRS when he left Cradle of Filth and started the band The Blood Devine. He purchased a secondhand CE24 and used it exclusively throughout the band's days and brought it with him when he rejoined Cradle of Filth in 2000. He then sent a design of his own to PRS featuring a purple and black sunburst on a curly maple top and replacing PRS's traditional bird inlays with bats.
PRS built this guitar for Allender through the Private Stock department, which eventually influenced his original SE model released in 2007. The original SE Paul Allender Model is updated here with the addition of a Scarlet Red color option, nickel hardware, an ebony fretboard, and EMG pickups.
