PRS SE Custom 24 – 7 String

PRS SE Custom 24 - 7 String -

PRS has finally let it out that a production model Custom 24 7 string will be available soon. This makes a lot of sense seeing as Dave Weiner has been out on the Road with Steve Vai playing a custom 7 string for a while now.

The SE Custom 24 7-String, takes familiar PRS aesthetics and playability to new territory. Using the Custom 24 as a platform, this guitar adds a low-B string to offer increased versatility to the player who wants more tonal range. No matter what style of music you play, this guitar provides extended low-end growl, increased chordal variance, and a greater ability to embellish standard chords. This guitar is equally suited to Charlie Hunter style jazz as it is to Misha Mansoor Djent.

The SE 7-String features a bevelled maple top with flame maple veneer and mahogany back, a 24-fret, 25" scale length maple neck with rosewood fretboard and bird inlays. The electronics package pairs SE HFS and SE Vintage Bass pickups with a volume, push/pull tone, and 3-way blade switch. The SE HFS and SE Vintage pickups were designed to mirror the Maryland-made pickups of the same name (used on the Custom since 1991). Originally meaning Hot, Fat, and Screams, the HFS was the evolution of the original Standard treble pickup. The HFS is a powerful pickup with a balance of aggression, clear highs, strong mid-range, and strong bass. Likewise, the Vintage bass is the evolution of the original Standard bass pickup and has a warm high-mid sound that is excellent for many musical styles.

The guitar is available in both Royal Blue and Vintage Sunburst, but there's no word yet on the price.

It would make sense that the first production model would be an SE as this will gauge the popularity of the concept. We can only hope that in time we get to see a high end US version.
