PRS Signature Artist SEs—Five Hot New Models

0.0000prssePRS Guitars is proud to announce that Orianthi , Zach Myers of Shinedown , Paul Allender of Cradle of Filth, Mike Åkerfeldt of Opeth , and Nick Catanese of Black Label Society had their signature SE models unveiled at the 2010 Anaheim NAMM show. Built in Korea to signature artist and PRS’s specifications by skilled craftsmen, the SE series offers an unmatched combination of incredible quality, sound, and price.

PRS has worked closely with each artist to present a guitar that identifies with their style, both musically and visually. Although they have worked with PRS for years, these are debut signature models for Orianthi, Myers, Åkerfeldt and Catanese. EMG pick ups as well as old school birds, an appointment that up until this year has been reserved for Maryland made PRS guitars, come standard on several of these new artist models.

SE Orianthi
A classic PRS sound with white pearloid birds and red sparkle finish, the Orianthi SE model (pictured, left) is the very first signature model instrument bearing the guitar goddess’ name. It comes standard with a Korina back and maple top, 24 fret wide-thin maple neck with 25” scale length and an ebony fretboard featuring white pearloid birds and an “O” at the 12th fret. The model also features PRS designed Tremolo and PRS designed tuners with nickel hardware and two hum bucking pickups to give new and seasoned players alike a shiny new ax to grind.

“This PRS is perfect for anyone who wants an awesome quality, versatile rockin’ lookin’ guitar – at an affordable price – I love it. Try it out.” Orianthi

SE Zach Myers of Shinedown
As the lead guitarist of a band with more than six million albums sold worldwide, Zach Myers is certainly no stranger to hard rock licks. In support of his blazing guitar skills, PRS and Zach designed his very first signature model. Silver Sparkle burst and white binding on top edge of body, fret board and headstock, the SE Zach Myers also features a Single cut mahogany body, flamed maple veneer, wide-fat mahogany 25” scale length neck and an ebony fret board with a Fleur-de-lis inlay at 12th fret. Additional features include an adjustable bridge (with large caps on the height adjustment screws), three hum bucking pickups with two volume and two tone controls, 3-way toggle.

"When I was approached about doing a signature model with PRS, I knew that in my career I had reached every goal I had wanted to reach. This model is based off of my two favorite PRS guitars, one being the first PRS I ever owned. This SE model holds up to both of those guitars as a players guitar that can take a beating....I have put everything I am into this guitar and can't wait for you to hear it." Zach Myers

Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth
As the lead vocalist and guitarist for the acclaimed death metal band Opeth, Mikael traverses the musical terrain with sounds that are “subject to savage punctuations of death metal fury at any given moment." Åkerfeldt once commented on the diversity of Opeth's...
