PRS SE Paul Allender
The PRS SE line of guitars is a line of guitars that PRS makes overseas and they are much more affordable than their USA made line of guitars. A lot of the PRS signature guitars are SE models so fans of the artist can afford them more easily. This is the current signature model for the Cradle of Filth guitarist Paul Allender. This is the current version as the older one had passive pickups I think this one is much better for heavy music. This is basically a modded Custom 24 SE. It has a mahogany body with a maple neck. The fretboard is ebony with 24 frets. It has bat inlays instead of the traditional birds. The pickups are a set of EMG's. It has an 81TW in the bridge and an 89 in the neck. The Allender obviously wanted the versatility of coil splitting. The bridge is a traditional PRS tremolo and the controls are traditional as well with a volume and tone with a 3 way switch.


These SE models do not come with locking tuners but everything else is pretty much PRS spec. This model has the wide thin neck which is really nice. It is like a 60s Gibson but with a flatter radius. The ebony fretboard is great and something you do not see often on even USA made PRS guitars. The bat inlays are pretty crazy and do not help much once you are at the higher frets because they are so big. I am not a big tremolo fan so I didnt use the tremolo much but PRS tremolos are pretty good even with their simple looking design.


The EMG 81tw and the 89 are both splittable EMG pickups. But since you cannot really split an active pickups these pickups are actually 2 pickups in 1 case. These EMG's pretty much have a single coil packed in with them. Ill start with the 81tw in the bridge. With this pickup you get an EMG 81 with an EMG SA in the same pickup case. This essentially gives you humbucker and single coil tones in an active pickup without splitting anything, and these are true single coil tones. With this design you get the classic 81 sound unmolested with true single coil tone. The 81 tone needs no introduction. It has a crushing high end sound that can cut through the thickest gain or the muddiest mix. The EMG SA is one of their best single coil models. It has a very fat sound. It is almost like a single coil EMG 85. You still get the single coil twang but with this pickup the twang has some body to it. It is a very cool design. Not many people use active single coils so with this you get a very strong single coil sound. The 89 is basically the same thing but with an EMG 85 base. So it has better clean tones and the tone is thicker and has more bottom throughout the range.


This is a nice signature guitar. It doesnt have any huge logos on it or names so you do not look like an advertisement for someone else. It is a solid PRS with pickups that work great for metal. There are not many PRS guitars that come with EMG's stock. I can think of this and the Nick Catanse model and that model is not a good signature model. It is covered in logos and red binding and all sorts of crazy stuff. If you are looking for a PRS with EMG pickups get this one. Its great because it does not cost any more than a normal PRS SE guitar. They are all well priced.

PRS SE Paul Allender
Made in Korea
24 frets
Designed vintage type tremolo PRS
1 volume, 1 tone, 3-position selector
set neck wide thin
Mahogany body with maple table maple veneer and custom Allender Burst
maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with insert bat


The neck is ultra comfortable. It is thin wide, so large and fine. The best race I have ever used. And yet I had a jackson, LTS, BC Rich and Schecter LAG
access to the latest cargo is pretty average, I think they could further refine the junction body / neck
The ergonomics are very good, it's a PRS, and is light enough.


It is suitable for all types of music, it is with the original pickups very versatile. too much for my taste, but it's really not a fault.
I play on an ultra + peayvey any lamp, high gain amp, and a boss gt-3 just for effect.
The sounds are rather bold with the original pickups. The bridge pickup has a good output level to attack until all the metal styles. It is less clear, however, that EMG, and a lower output level. It delivers more bass than the EMG and the sound is more rounded.
The neck pickup is very plain. In the clear is pretty good, the sound is round and rather hot, but it's not terrible saturated, the output level is not high enough.
I'll change the pickups in all likelihood to put microphones less versatile and more suited to my style (metal).


I've had little time.
I really love the look with the insert bat on the handle. the handle is adapted to a really great fast game.
El'acquérir before I owned a BC Rich Warlock, BC Rich NT a JRV, a Jackson Kelly KE-3, a schecter hellraiser, a lag hardmaster Rockline.
PRS Paul Allender is in the top of all this
this choice I would do this hesitation, not even 650 euros with the new cover, this is really a killer.

PRS SE Paul Allender
Made in Korea
24 frets
vintage type tremolo PRS Designed
1 volume, 1 tone, 3 position selector
PRS passive microwave
Wide thin neck stuck
Mahogany body with maple top and maple veneer Custom Allender Burst
maple neck, rosewood fingerboard with insert bat


The neck is really nice, the first time I tried it, I told myself "bug is a real highway!" And finally I discovered, after buying the beast, it was more a highway, it was really a runway.
I find access to acute rather easy but do not expect a stroll on the E string bass from the 20 th fret = P
Me playing with a Vox 15 watt amp and a Zoom pedal G2.1u, relatively low-end stuff, I get a sound pretty good that even managed to make him jealous of a friend who "best" instruments.


This guitar is well suited to my style of music, which is actually quite varied, from gypsy jazz to black metal. It is extremely versatile, that's what I like about her.
The neck pickup provides a warm round sound and clean, with some distortion is enough.
The bridge pickup, it offers a more slamming into clean, distortion and it is quite indescribable *-*
I still think changing the pickups in a more or less near future, just to make me happy and pampered this beautiful guitar.


I own this guitar since mid-September.
It suits me in every respect, it is really versatile.
Before it, I owned a Epiphone Les Paul Studio entry level, so I immediately made the difference, it goes without saying.
I love her inlays, which are at least unusual <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />
The value for money is pretty good, I got it for around 800 euros with a game cover + string + 53 + picks two jacks (offered by the seller), as if it were to do again, I would do this choice without hesitation!

Neo171283's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very good guitar"

PRS SE Paul Allender
Mahogany body, flamed maple top
24 fret maple neck with rosewood fingerboard markers shaped bat

PRS SE Bridge
PRS SE Mechanical
EMG 81 bridge pickup
EMG 89 neck pickup
1 volume common to two microphones + split neck pickup
Common + 1 tone split bridge pickup
A 3-position selector


The neck is relatively thin and is very fast. I usually played on a Les Paul that has a thicker handle. Weight is very acceptable (similar to a Stratocaster). This guitar is very easy to play and access to the treble does not pose too many problems.


This guitar is obviously oriented towards the metal, however what I bleuffé, she's very versatile. The pickups are very powerful, but thanks to the two push-pull can be obtained with an array sound quite broad. The knobs are also very efficient, very linear.


I use it since November 2010. I tried a Cort, a Lag Roxanne 1000. What I like most is its color and finish, because even for a PRS SE, we can see the expertise of the brand. What I like least was the strings of origins (9-42 I think) that I quickly replaced by 11-52. The value for money is very good given the level of finish. I think I will ever be the choice.
