Overview

Zach Myers, lead guitarist of the multi-platinum rock band Shinedown, picked up a PRS Custom 22 at the age of fifteen and announced his first SE signature model in 2010. As a guitarist who has rocked PRS on the stage and teched for several PRS bands, Myers has an intimate understanding of how a guitar should feel and what the build quality should be. After months of design and conversations with PRS' SE team, Zach and PRS are pleased to introduce an all-new SE Zach Myers for 2014.

The 2014 SE Zach Myers features a chambered mahogany body with maple cap, flame maple veneer and single f-hole that provides smooth mid-range tones with a natural, resonant internal reverb. The 22-fret 24.5" scale length wide fat neck boasts a satin finish that gives the guitar a very comfortable, woody, worn-in feel.

Additional appointments to the SE Zach Myers signature model include PRS adjustable stoptail bridge, vintage style tuners, and PRS SE 245 pickups paired with two volume and two tone controls and a 3-way toggle pickup switch.

Includes gig bag.

Love the look, sounds great, not too heavy on my shoulder. I am having a little trouble keeping guitar in tune, I think it'll be fine once the stings stretch, if not I'll return it.

    Comments about PRS SE Zach Myers Electric Guitar:

    Like most people on here, I have owned and do own a lot of different guitars. While I am a Charvel fan, I did not have a hollow body or semi-hollow in my collection. This guitar blew me away. It is light and well built, but the most interesting thing are all the tones you can get out of it. Back off the volume and tone and you get a bluesy sound. Full volume and tone clean, and a jazz sound comes through, but add distortion and this thing goes to metal in a flash. First Korean guitar I have ever owned and I have to say, well worth the money

      Comments about PRS SE Zach Myers Electric Guitar:

      I was hesitant about purchasing this guitar as I have never bought a guitar online sight unseen. I was so overwhelmed once I got it as the guitar is beautiful. It plays great right out of the box and only needs a setup if you want to play any strings heavier than 9's. I am absolutely pleased with this purchase and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a wonderful single cut guitar for a crazy low price.

          Comments about PRS SE Zach Myers Electric Guitar:

          This guitar has really good tone. To give you an idea of how good we're talking about, I actually had no intention of buying this guitar, but after playing it at the store, I sold my old LP Studio, and bought this one the day I first played it. That may be extreme for some, but I kid you not, this guitar has easily some of the best tone on the market. It's very mid-rangy and the pickups give it a very thick sound. You can play power chords and it will sound like you're playing a full bar chord. I've actually learned to be very minimal with this guitar as far as how many notes are needed to get a full sound. The thing that sold me on this guitar were the lead-tones. If you go up on the fretboard you just get beautifully sung notes. I mean sing too, because that's what it feels like. The only thing I'll miss about my old LP is the EMG's I installed in them. They have a little more bite, but I haven't needed that much bite in a long time as my tastes have changed. I've never gotten this much enjoyment from a guitar for about 1/6 of the cost of a Gibson of equal quality. Also, way better neck and feel than my old LP. Step aside Gibson, PRS is the new king.

          Comments about PRS SE Zach Myers Electric Guitar:

          From my cold dead hands is the only way I'm parting from this guitar. Every time I play it I get wow comments for tone and appearance. Blues and Old R&R playing in a band and jams for longer than PRS has been around. Excellent quality, killer tone lite weight, excellent feel and in short it's hard to find the $3,000 difference for a Core PRS. My complaint is the guitar is set up for 9s and installation of 10-52s required drilling out the #6 tunner post and a nut filing. Short Scale players understand string tension with 10s feels like 9s on a long neck. Other guitars I've owned accomidated heavyer gauge strings. Buy this guitar, it doesn't matter what amp I plug into I always get sustain and drive in my tone. Changed my playing style for the better.

          Comments about PRS SE Zach Myers Electric Guitar:

          I can't say enough good things about this guitar.

          My first "real" guitar was a 1988 Gibson SG--purchased new in 1988. I played that guitar exclusively until I bought a 2007 Gibson Les Paul Studio. I thought I'd play that Les Paul forever.

          My band plays a lot of different styles of music (acoustic rock, punk, blues-rock, 80s Brit Pop, etc.) and I found myself switching between my Martin acoustic, Les Paul and SG throughout our two hour set. Keeping 3 guitars in-tune (and safe!) while working out the cabling and effects for 3 instruments was a pain. I set out to find one guitar to rule them all.

          I decided that a semi-hollow would help with resonance to get a more "acoustic" sound. I often switch between the pickups with different volumes/tones, so an easily accessible 3 way switch and separate tone/volume controls was necessary. And, I've always been a humbucker guy. I have a couple of songs that could use a screaming single coil, but I'm okay with the humbucker sound.

          After months of research, I finally found this Zach Myers guitar. Note: I'd never heard of Zach Myers prior to purchasing this guitar (sorry, Zach!). I was a bit concerned that at the price point it would be less of a guitar than my Les Paul/SG, but was willing to take the chance.

          I bought it online and it arrived within a few days. I never thought I'd buy a guitar without playing it, but knew that there were only a handful of options -- and -- I have a Guitar Center nearby so I knew I could return it if necessary. Besides, I wanted to try it with my equipment, not a mis-match of things at Guitar Center. I wouldn't really know how it played/sounded until I played it on --my-- rig.

          I've since sold my Les Paul and thought I'd pine over losing it for the rest of my life. I was wrong. From the time I plugged my new PRS into my rig, I loved it. I haven't looked back. I've always been a Gibson guy, and here I am with a PRS.

          I don't understand the electronics enough to tell you how all of this works, but I can tell you that the volume and tone controls are TONS better than both of my Gibsons. I can back off the volume on my rhythm pick up, drop the tone a bit, and it sounds like my SG. I can switch to the treble pickup at 10 and 10, and it sounds like a "shredder" guitar. Back it off a bit, and it's a nice chunky Les Paul sound.

          With the rhythm pickup, on a clear channel, it sounds like an acoustic plugged in. How do I know? At my first band practice with this guitar, the rhythm guitarist had stepped out. I'd switched to the clear channel and was strumming. He walked in and looked puzzled. He said, "I thought you were playing your acoustic."

          That was it--one guitar to rule them all.

          I've since added a BOSS Acoustic Simulator to my signal chain and the resonance really comes through.

          This is a SOLID guitar.

          Two suggestions that go together:

          1) For my playing style, the stock strings are too thin. I saw a YouTube video about this guitar and that person also agreed. Those thin strings might work for some people, but I think it should come stock with 10s.

          2) GET A SET UP ON THIS GUITAR! I'm a do-it-yourselfer, but Guitar Center (at least mine) offers discounted setups for new guitars. At my GC it was $25. $25 well spent. He re-set the guitar for my preferred strings (I use Gibson Vintage Reissue 10 Lights) and lowered the action. As a result, this guitar practically plays itself.

          Oh yeah, and I don't really care what a guitar looks like. My Les Paul was one of those "faded cherry" wood stained guitars. No special finish or anything. I bought it for the feel and the electronics--not the look. My SG is the original finish, which was white and is now a faded yellow. Again, I play it for the feel and electronics, not the looks.

          This Zach Myers guitar not only has the feel and the electronics, it has great LOOKS. Not a selling point for me, but I'm not complaining. It really looks amazing. It's the best looking guitar I've ever owned.

          The only drawback to this guitar is its weight. I know it all comes together to make this guitar sound and feel the way it does, but I miss the breaks I had from my Les Paul when I'd switch to my lightweight SG or acoustic. I went from getting those breaks to playing a heavy guitar for a couple of hours. Not that big of a deal for our shows, but a 4-5 hour practice session... Whew... This is easily as heavy as my Les Paul. Keep that in mind.

          I don't know why this guitar isn't the best selling guitar year after year. If you want a Les Paul feel with more options, this is it.

          Overall, this sums it up: if anything happens to mine, I'll quickly buy another. I'll recommend this guitar to anyone.

            Comments about PRS SE Zach Myers Electric Guitar:

            A little background on me--I've played guitar for about 13 years, have gigged regularly and am a lover of a great tone. This guitar was an early Christmas present from my wife. She kept it a secret until the box arrived...and then it was impossible. Just FYI if this is a gift, this box is MASSIVE, but very well packed--the guitar was kept very safe. I opened the include gig bag and found a beautiful vintage sunburst finish. This is my first SE since I purchased a used 2002 Tremonti Standard years ago. With American electronics and a little refinishing that Tremonti was my number one guitars--until now. This guitar is beautiful for starters. It is a looker for sure. The flame maple really is an eye catcher. The vintage tuners add to the look. The neck is a satin finish and it feels surprisingly good in the hand...I've never had a satin neck and I dig it. I put on a set of my Ernie Balls, did a truss adjustment to compensate and reintonated the strings. With that in mind, it's worth mentioning this is the only SE I've ever seen with an adjustable hardtail bridge. I saw a video interview with Zach Myers where he said this is the American adjustable bridge they put on this thing! This thing plays like a dream. It has sustain for days. I thought maybe I would replace the pickups, however the tone is actually quite nice. I did purchase a set of nickel-silver pickup covers to put on purely for aesthetic reasons--I'm not a fan of zebra pickups. I am having trouble finding an affordable hard case. I am a worship leader at a large church and travel with my guitar twice a week. The gig bag makes me nervous, but due to the thickness of this beast, it does not fit in a lot of standard hard cases. The only real flaw my guitar has is a scratch on frets 20-22 on the lower three strings. I will eventually fix this with fret recrowning tools, and I never use those frets on those strings, so it is no issue, however it is worth mentioning. I'd highly recommend this guitar. The craftsmanship, tone and playability are much higher than the price point!

            Great All Around Guitar

            By gordon

            from Dalton, GA

            Comments about PRS SE Zach Myers Electric Guitar:

            I was looking for a hollow/semi hollow electric and couldn't seem to find what I wanted. I played a number of different brands and price level guitars but nothing felt right. I finally played the PRS Zach Myers in the Alpharetta GC and was blown away. I was still in the "looking" mode so I didn't purchase that day. I finally ordered one and couldn't wait to get it. When it arrived it was nearly perfect to play right out of the box. The neck was set with abou a nickel's thickness at the 12th fret and the harmonics were dead on. The pickups are hot and have clear definition. Trim and finish were just what I expeced from a PRS. Playing this guitarist a dream. The neck felt wide at first but after a few days I harly notice the width any more. I just can't say enough good about this axe. At the price point it's just hard to beat I have a Gibson LP studio that was a bit more expensive and this guitar is clearly better. Played through both a tube and a solid state amp with flat settings on the amps, and 5's on all the volume and tone on the guitar will fully demonstrate the tone and clarity. You just can't go wrong. My only gripe is the gig bag. I hate a gig bag. The included bag is nice but IT'S NOT A CASE. Speaking of cases, you may want to wait until you have the guitar to select one. The neck joint and thickness of the body eliminates most LP cases. I ended up with Guardian CG-035-LP arch top tweed (very snug fit). In short, this guitar is worth every penny and then some. The GC store in Chattanoga, TN made ordering a dream. I would also advise the pro plan.
