Overview

The PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar features a gorgeous bookmatched, heavily flamed maple veneer (on transparent-finish models) above a maple top and a mahogany back. This tried-and-true wood combination produces great resonance with bold bottom end. The PRS SE Single Cut guitar is enhanced by a wraparound stop tailpiece/bridge for direct transfer of string vibration. PRS-designed humbucker pickups turn all that resonance into nearly endless sustain. Moon fretboard inlays and natural maple top binding add a little Paul Reed Smith flair to the SE Singlecut.

I bought this Guitar 5 months ago.I still reach for this guitar first over any other I own. My friend has the Mccarty and it is one of his favorites. The other night I let him play my SE Single Cut and it nocked his socks off. I think he was trying to justify the 1K difference in price he paid. The pick ups are well balanced the sustain is graet, the tonal highs and lows are fantastic. This is not the american made PRS but it will blow you away. Dollar to performance ratio = 10+. Be carefull, because your gonna want one!

Absolutely terrific

By prslikeaboss

from virginia

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

This guitar is amazing. I have it in blue, and its stunning. The picture does not do it justice. This guitar plays great. the action is great, the tone is amazing, and it stays in tune pretty well. This was an upgrade from my epiphone les paul special 2, and there is no comparison. The wrap around tail piece is a great feature, and it looks terrific. This guitar is awesome, and for the money, there is nothing better.

Tons Of Tone

By Flame Top

from The South

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

Talk about wonderful versatility WOW! Finally a quality guitar for the budget minded masses. Great workmanship, Great looks, and a tone that's as sweet as molasses. Built out of warm Mahogany, with a Maple cap topped with a nice flame veneer for those shimmering highs this guitar fits all styles of music. Wether you play Jazz, Blues or the newer heavy styles this PRS has it covered. The pickups are top notch for a guitar in this price range and the factory set up is as pleasurable as it's appearance. If your looking for quality, Playability, and affordability this should be your weapon of choice. Great Job PRS !!!

I bought one of these ...

By stharv

from Fayetteville, AR

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I bought one of these about two weeks ago. All I can say is, Wow! I am mainly a strat player, but have also owned american made les pauls, and paul reed smiths. I wanted to get a les paul/set neck mahagony type guitar just for variety. This is a great alternative to spending 2K or more on a Gibson or real PRS. I am using the stock pickups and they sound quite good. I am of course tempted to replace them with Gibson, Seymour Duncan, or PRS pickups just because this would supposedly sound better. When i play this guitar next to my American strats, it fits right in sound quality and tone wise. I don't feel like it is an inferior instrument and for giving me more variety it is just awesome for the price.

Great value

By 5fingers

from Florida

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

While not having some of the features of the much more expensive singlecut, it is missing nothing in playablity. I own a couple of PRS guitars, all way more expensive. Yet it's the first one I pick up, and the last one I put away. Great action, very good tone & sustain. Also beautiful to look at. A great value....

Great "everything" guitar

By Jeremy S.

from Dallas, TX.

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

About a year ago, I went shopping for a Les Paul or Strat as something different to play. I was disheartened by the price that even used ones were fetching. I went into GC and played a few, but wasn't overly impressed. The salesman handed me a black PRS SE Singlecut as I was about to leave. This guitar just "felt" right. Played great, sounded great, and it looked great. I walked out of the store with it, and it has become my "everything" guitar... a true workhorse. When I jam with my friends, they love playing it as well. The PRS SE Singlecut really is one of the best values there is, for all kinds of music. If your budget can only allow you to have one guitar, this will probably be it. If you can afford more guitars, you should still have this one just because you will like playing it.

Nothing special

By Luckydog

from Rochester, NY

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I'm not impressed. I own a PRS SE soapbar II Maple and was looking to add a crunchy humbucker guitar to my collection. This isn't all its cracked up to be. It sounds OK. To me it is not an awesome sounding guitar. The machine head tuners stink and its a shame that PRS builds a nice guitar that can't stay in tune. Once you replace the tuners its a nice guitar - no question. This is not a piece of junk. Its otherwise a nice guitar. My complaint is the price + paying for new tuners is too close to the Gibson Vintage Mahogany which blows this guitar away. Gibson Vintage Mahogany is U-G-L-Y, but the pickups are way hotter and simple a better instrument. Vintage Mahoganies can be gotten for $699 and the PRS Singlecut is $599+ tuners and your sweat to replace them or paying someone to do it for you. In essence the same cost.

Best in class! or even two classes above!

By Jarhog

from California

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I decided to trade the worn brown Les paul in on the PRS SE single cut. Wanna know why? In my opinion, PRS has the lock on progression in refining the classic styling of les paul type guitars. The PRS SE Singlecut's Fit, finish, sound, and playability are simply superior to Gibsons lower line les pauls(yes Gibson not Epiphone). The Clarity of the tone even through heavy saturation is amazing. Listen, I'm as Patriotic as A man can Get, but with my Iraqi War earned money I'm gonna get the most quality I can get without spending enough to buy a nice used car on a guitar! I agree the tuners aren't first class but you still gotta tune the "g" string on a LP every song too!

Great

By LUkeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

from Tempe, AZ

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I really like this guitar. It sounds amazing for a blues/jazz feel, but it sounds like a golden city of rock n' roll. Its Vibrato sounds amazing. I have a Fender Strat, and I'd have to say this guitar is better for stuff like bluesy and jazz, but if someone wants to play rock, this guitar is as good as the strat. Sounds good for stuff like b.b. king, and yes. So a big difference. Metal players- stay away from this guitar.

PRS SE Review

By xmario_sx

from Denton, Tx

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

As far as an introduction to PRS guitars the SE Singlecut is a great guitar that surpasses all guitars for it's light weight and versatility on sound. The toggle switch allows for a bass, mid, treble range. The stock PRS humbuckers are low end PRS stock but of the highest quality and have a really great sound; crisp clean sound. I played this guitar on a Fender CyberTwin SE using built in effects and sounded absolutely breathe-taking. Fretboard is made of rosewood and the body is made of mahogany which makes for a light guitar. This guitar delivers a great package for a fraction of the cost.

Blown away!

By Josh K

from Columbus, Ohio

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I was originally looking to get the tremonti se, but I stumbled across this guitar. I picked it up and within minutes I knew that it was the one for me. I love the neck. It plays so smoothly. The stock pickups are very surprising. I just wish that it came with locking studs for the bridge, but oh well. It would take more than that for me to knock off any stars!

The Return of Real Quality

By Mark Rakemaker

from Independence, Missouri

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I've never owned a PRS guitar and the quality of the other major labels has really diminished to the point of no return, sad but true. When I was in GC I picked up the Cherry Sunburst PRS after looking at some of the other big names and I was amazed at the craftsmanship. And then I went to play it. Wow! And then I plugged it in expecting to have to swap out the pups as usual and yet another Wow! PRS: Thank you! Keep up the great work! And you'll have everyone playing your name. And fellow Shredders, watch the videos on the left hand side of the page.

AMAZING Guitar

By Michael

from Sumter,SC

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I traded in my old Ibanez RG for this SE. Was going to get a Schecter Hellraiser and walked out with the PRS instead. My other guitar is a Schecter BlackJack C1, which is amazing also. I have never played a high end PRS so I have nothing to compare the SE to in the PRS line, but I am very pleased with every aspect of it. The pups sound amazing and honestly have a little more clarity than my SD JB/'59 in the Schecter. Maybe there's something else going on there, but I pick up the SE exclusively to play blues and clean stuff. The bridge pickup really smokes it for drop D material. I have a BlackStar HT5 combo amp and the SE really has a pleasing tonality to it. For the frogs, this guitar is such a great purchase and I imagine that the resale value would hold or increase...but I am not selling it : ]

My best guitar yet!

By Joel Blackmon

from South Carolina

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

This is my best guitar yet! It blows my Dean vendetta 3.0 out of the water. For those looking to get a PRS without killing the pocket I recommend this guitar. I might end up dropping a Tremonti pickup in it for higher output. The feel, the look, the sound is amazing and i will never regret buying this instrument. You cant get anything better for the price. If your looking for an SE, this is the one!

a dream, worth every cent

By wyll

from metro detroit area, michigan

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I have been eying this beauty for months, looking to take a step up from my Epiphone SG... and finally made the purchase. for those of us that can not yet afford the epic custom 22's, this is a great mid-range PRS that is very affordable. the look and feel are simply amazing. the neck and strings feel so light, its easy to dance around on the fretboard. Very solid and sturdy design, feels great in your hands. The aesthetics are the same as any other PRS, gorgeous. the tone of the guitar is what ive always been looking for. though my Vox 50VT, I've never heard anything closer to that personal sound I've had in my head. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase, and know I have finally found 'my' guitar :) the tone of the guitar is what ive always been looking for. though my Vox 50VT, ive never heard anything closer to that personal sound ive had in my head. overall, i am very pleased with this purchase, and know i have finally found 'my' guitar :)

Perfect for the next step!!!

By Izzy-Belle

from Fl

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

Wow,this guitar is simply amazing. I just got one and the sustain is fantastic. Ive only been playing for about 3 years and i needed a new guitar, a step up from the fender strat,and i found this. I started playing it, and i had to have it. If you want a guitar that can withstand maximum jammin, and gives a great sound, this is the guitar for you. Nothing further. Rock on!!!

Beyond the honeymoon...

By Ian

from Eielson AFB, AK

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar last year, and still love this thing. The tuners aren't the best, and until I raised my bridge pickup a little, sounded relatively thin when heavily distorted. I recall saying to myself that I wanted something that cleaned up very nicely, and dirtied up VERY well. Well, I got that most definitely with this guitar. The most beautiful top in a guitar this price, (good 10 top mimic) light weight, and simple controls sold me. Not to mention some of the most interactive controls from any guitar I've played the last few years. Thanks to this guitar, my love for playing has been re-ignited. Very sharp and precise pickups really drive someone to be a better player. Think you'll get a mudslinger and be sloppy? No thank you. Put 10's on this, and you're ready to rock. Nuff said.
