[NAMM] New PRS SE Singlecut Models
The SE line (SE Custom 24, SE Singlecut, SE Custom Semi-Hollow, and SE Singlecut Trem) features new SE 245 with pickups optimized for its shorter 24.5” neck or the introduction of bird inlays.
The SE Tim Mahoney, modeled after the PRS that helped Tim create 311’s signature sound, features a mahogany body, a 24 fret 25” maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with bird inlays, stoptail bridge, nickel hardware and SE HFS Treble and SE Vintage Bass pickups.
With new SE 245 pickups, a thicker single cutaway body for increased resonance, the PRS-designed stoptail, and the 4-knob layout, the new SE 245 is designed to allow players to adapt to a variety of musical styles.
The SE Custom 24 has a flamed maple veneer top and SE versions of PRS's HFS Treble and Vintage Bass Humbuckers. The SE Custom 24 is now being offered in Orange and Tri-Color Sunburst. As follow-up to the 25th Anniversary version which debuted in 2010, the SE Custom now comes standard with birds as well.
Offering the same mahogany body, maple top, and flame maple veneer as the SE Singlecut, the newest version of the SE Singlecut Trem features a PRS designed tremolo bridge and is now offered in Scarlet Red and Black with bird inlays. A 22-fret, wide-fat mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard is designed to accentuate the instrument’s rtones, and the PRS-designed treble and bass humbuckers are designed to "offer a multitude of sounds for players of every style."
