For many years, the SE One was a highly-regarded model in the PRS guitar catalogue. And after much demand from fans - it's back! With the original formula still intact, including the single P90 pickup, singlecut body shape and simple stoptail bridge; this punchy-sounding punk machine is perfect for rocking out with!
Body & Neck
The PRS SE One is crafted predominantly from Korina; used to construct both its body and neck. Popular with electric guitar designers in the late '50s, Korina has recently been making a comeback and captures the essence of that vintage, old-school sound. Similar to Mahogany both tonally and aesthetically, Korina delivers a warm, bass-friendly tone with a sweet and responsive mid-range.
A "Wide Fat" neck profile also gives this instrument some extra vintage charm, with a rounded and substantial feel. Although modern players may not feel accustomed to its shape, this particular neck carve offers a supportive and comfortable feel that's perfect for playing aggressive power chords or even melodic leads.
Hardware & Electronics
PRS' SE One guitar is fitted with reliable, high-quality hardware that'll simply never let you down when playing onstage or recording in the studio. Equipped with PRS' Adjustable Stoptail bridge, this beautifully-machined piece of hardware combines traditional design with the perks of modern tweakability. At the other end of the instrument you'll find a set of PRS-designed machine heads; keeping your tuning super-solid.
This guitar gets most of its raunchy and powerful tone from its P90-style pickup - the PRS SP-SOAP-TNC. Delivering potent amounts of mid-range, this focused-sounding pickup is practically made for overdriven and distorted amp tones. However, using clean settings will yield a clear and articulate sound - especially with the volume control rolled down a touch.
