The best value I have seen in a while

By Dakota Ryan

from Visalia, CA

Comments about PRS SE Tim Mahoney Electric Guitar:

When I picked up this guitar I was struggling financially and had just had my most prized guitar stolen out of the trunk of my car a month prior, so I was desperate to find something playable at a relatively low price. Needless to say I definitely found what I was looking for with this guitar. It plays great, stays in tune, and is fairly durable (one of the pickup screws fell out on stage once). I've had it on stage with me alongside a much higher end model that I borrowed that costs over three times as much, and this guitar nearly matched the other as far as feel and quality. The only big difference was the hardware; the higher end model had a much nicer bridge and tuning keys, but other than that they were so similar that I almost didn't bother using the other guitar. Overall I am a proud owner. The color is beautiful, the sound and feel are great, but the paint does scratch fairly easily so be aware of that. Definitely worth your money, and works great as a step up for young guitarists who are looking to bench their squires and for experienced guitarists who are looking for a nice cheap new addition to their collection.

One of my favorite guitars

By Matt Keating

from Salt Lake City, UT

Comments about PRS SE Tim Mahoney Electric Guitar:

I didn't even know the name "tim mahoney" when i picked this guitar up and tried it out, I had to look his name up on google. I went to guitar center a few months ago to buy a SG standard, and decided to play a few other guitars to make sure the SG was what I wanted. I picked up this bright blue looking PRS SE with the name TIm Mahoney on it and was very impressed. Hands down it played and felt better in my hands than any that I played that day and when I plugged it in the pickups had much better sound and control as well. I went home with this guitar and an extra $500 in my pocket and its been 2 months later now and its my favorite go-to guitar, and I thought I would have to change out the pick-ups being an SE and all, but they sound great. Overall tim mahoney and PRS did a great job on this guitar and I recommend anyone looking for a new gutiar to pick this one up and try it out if you see it at the GC.

Great Economy Guitar

By Scott MacDonald

from Phoenix AZ

Comments about PRS SE Tim Mahoney Electric Guitar:

This will be a good review BUT: I got a defective guitar, possible with any manufacturer. Blemishes on finish: slight bulge on neck made G string sound off constantly. Would not stay tuned. I had previously purchased the PRS SE Custom 24 first. It was perfect: so pretty with flame maple top I didn't want to play it. I got the Tim Mahoney model because I wanted a working man's guitar, ok to use and scratch. Returned that and got the SE Dave Navarro model. Perfect. I was concerned about tremolo (had a strat once that went out of tune every song) but amazingly the PRS stays in tune. EVEN the G string after bending thru several songs. The wide/thin necks on these models play like none other. First guitar I've liked the sound of the pickups with no effects. PRS guitars are awesome I recommend highly.

Great, no-nonsense Instrument

By matthew greene

from Nashville

Comments about PRS SE Tim Mahoney Electric Guitar:

I can comment on everything except the pups- got mine used & it has Duncan Alnico 2 Pro (the non-Slash version), which sound fantastic btw. I had no idea who Tim Mahoney was- I just wanted to try a PRS & got a sweet deal. Figured I'd re-sell if I didn't like it. Spoiler alert- Its not going anywhere! Fit & finish are superb. It's light as a feather (don't believe the 'tone wood' hype regarding solidbody electrics- it's BS). Pay thousands more for something prettier if you want, but I'm willing to bet this one sounds just as good. It's not carved, but has all it needs- arm contour & belly cut. The thin, painted neck is a change for me, but no complaints. For whatever reason, coming from all Fender style guitars, it took a few hours for me to get used to this one. If I'd played for just a few minutes in the store, I probably would have passed. Not sure if it's the radius or scale, but once I settled in, I couldn't put this bad boy down. Another thing I love- simplicity- from the no-string tree needed headstock, to the incredible PRS wraparound bridge- Perfect intonation, no adjustments needed ever. No stupid saddle set screws to strip out like Fender, and no dumb knife edge Gibson bridge to break my strings. Mine stays in tune like a champ as well.

Amazing instrument

By Chris Wadden

from Boston, MA

Comments about PRS SE Tim Mahoney Electric Guitar:

This guitar is absolutely ridiculous. I also own a PRS Custom 22 and one of the SE Semi-Hollows. I could choose any guitar I wanted. I chose the PRS. Paul Reed Smith himself has said his guitars are only getting better. And that includes the SE's. This guitar is just awesome. Intonation is perfect from standard to Drop B. The stock pickups were decent, but I switched out the bridge to an SD Alternative 8, (an EXCELLENT pickup) and now this thing is amazing. It's super light but has a massively resonant tone. The fit and finish is excellent. They could sell this guitar for 899.99$ and I'd still think it's a good deal. You will not be disappointed, trust me.

Couldn't ask for a better guitar.

By Jorge Tirado

from San Diego

Comments about PRS SE Tim Mahoney Electric Guitar:

I've been playing this guitar for passed month and I gotta say this guitar is probably one of the lightest/smoothest guitars I've ever played. It has really low action which makes flying up and down the fret board super smooth. The tone is great too, the bridge pickup has good bite to it and the neck pickup is nice and warm. The color on this guitar gorgeous, the pictures on here dont really do it justice.

Value and SOUND!!!

By Ian Althouse

from Zionsville, PA

Comments about PRS SE Tim Mahoney Electric Guitar:

Finally saw this in my local Guitar Center today and was pretty impressed overall. Sure, it's not an American-made PRS with a carved top and side binding or Tim's Vessels Tiki head inlay, but it still looks the part. I love the color for starters, it's rare to see a guitar stand out like this one does. If you are sick of seeing the typical, black, candy apple, sunburst, white guitars, then this guitar is right up your alley. The playability is the first thing I noticed and the longer scale length with the 24 frets. Plays like a dream, just like the USA models. Nut is very well machined and the bridge is the PRS wrap-around which, combined with the set neck, creates LOADS of sustain. Pickups sounded typical PRS style, although the bridge was a hair brighter than I would have liked. Lots off bass, but also clear highs. I played it through a Line 6 with 311 artist patches and rolled through "Beautiful Disaster" "Prisoner" "Amber" and "Down" among others. The guitar responded perfectly and delivered the thick, melodic 311 sound. The guitar sounded amazing clean and thoroughly rocked when distorted. Leads sang out for days and it had decent harmonic response. Used the volume knob for swells and it was in a perfect place for my pinky and also delivered a nice volume taper. For $500 bucks, with a nice set neck and pair of pickups, custom blue color, this guitar is a great deal. If you are a 311 fan, this is pretty much a must. However, this guitar is incredibly versatile and can be used in many rock/reggae applications.
