PRS SE Paul’s Guitar – Fire Red
Features and Visuals Inspired by Paul’s Personal Guitars
Features and visuals inspired by PRS founder Paul Reed Smith’s personal player collection come to a much more affordable price point in the PRS SE Paul’s Guitar. With a highly figured maple-capped mahogany body, for the sparkle, sustain, and tastefully eye-catching look PRS players live and die by. The neck has the hand-filling 22-fret Pattern profile , which offers off-the-charts playability up and down the birds-clad rosewood fingerboard. On the electronics front, a pair of custom-spec’d TCI humbuckers with independent coil tap switches — a totally unique feature to any PRS outside the Core and Private Stock collections — capable of gorgeous single-tone voicings to scorching high-gain humbucker heat and all stops in between. Factor in an authentic PRS stop tailpiece with brass inserts, and with the PRS SE Paul’s Guitar from Sweetwater, you’ve got the very best of Paul’s decades of class-leading designs.
The perfect marriage of maple and mahogany
Many of the world’s most sought-after guitars, including PRS’s own, have sported the same pairing of maple and mahogany you’ll find on the PRS SE Paul’s Guitar. These two tonewoods are thought to yield an ideal balance of sparkle, snap, and sustain — with the added bonus of gorgeous looks. And like any guitar fine enough to grace Paul’s personal collection, the Paul’s Guitar is equipped with a stunning figuring pattern made all the more vivid by a loveley, tonally transparent gloss finish.
Multipurpose Pattern mahogany neck
Paul’s Pattern profile mahogany neck harks back to the company’s pre-factory guitar builds, found in the hands of the likes of Santana and Frampton in the ’70s and ’80s. The Pattern neck’s deep profile perfectly fills the hand and yields a warm, toneful sustain from top to bottom.a
TCI humbuckers with coil tap toggles
A set of custom-spec’d TCI (Tuned Capacitance and Inductance) pickups with independent coil tap toggles allows players to access and blend single-coil and humbucker textures in any of the three pickup positions. The PRS SE Paul’s Guitar marks the first time you’ll find a pickup switching system this advanced outside the PRS Private Stock and Core lines.
