I just purchased this guitar a few weeks ago and I must say that it is my favorite guitar out of all the different guitars Ive bought in the last 13 years of playing. Ive owned a Silverton, several ESP LTD's, a Dean, a Epiphone Explorer, a Schecter, a few Jackson's, and now a PRS Tremonti SE. Ive looked at a couple PRS SE guitars and even though they are made in Korea, they still look and feel like they are very high quality. Im very picky about my guitars as far as quality goes and the PRS SE guitars are up to my standards. I will be buying more PRS SE guitars in the future.
I got this guitar a few weeks ago, and simply can?t put it down! The pickups, PRS designed, are amazing! The tone is rich and full, yet defined, even with high gain settings. You can basically get everything you could possibly need, crystal-clear cleans, hot and defined lead tones... You name it; this guitar will deliver anything you want. The playability is great. The neck is fast and comfortable, the harmonic response is superb, and it sustains for quite a while. The bridge is fantastic, changing the strings is really easy and intonation is perfect. The nut helps to stay in tune. No matter how hard you hit the strings, it won?t get out of tune. Now, if you?re a metal player like myself, this guitar is perfect for fast riffing, soloing and palm muting. Aesthetically speaking, this guitar is beautiful. The craftsmanship is top notch on this particular instrument. There?s not much left to say but to encourage you to try out this guitar. It is a perfectly fine axe for a decent price.
Are you looking for a great looking mid-priced guitar that plays and sounds as good as it looks? Here it is. Are you looking for a solid mahogany set-neck guitar that despite its light weight has unrivaled sustain? How about a contoured upper back that doesn't bruise your ribs when you play seated? How about standard appointments like a bound body, neck, and headstock, unique fretboard inlays, and chrome hardware? How about humbuckers with their own tone and volume controls that can handle anything from screaming metal to crunchy blues to sweet cleans and twang? Here it is. The fit and finish are top quality, the vintage cherry is stunning. This guitar is a joy to look at as well as to play. If you're looking for value, here it is.
I love this guitar. I could end the review there, but I'll go on: I got the black finish and it's a beautiful guitar. It sounds amazing--in fact, it makes my little Fender practice amp sound amazing--and has great playability, even for a guitarist/singer as finnicky as I am. Love the stoptail bridge. As a warning, it IS an SE and has some quality issues, i.e. My strap buttons come a little loose, my tuners loosen every so often. These, however, are minor, easily corrected problems that make no change in my opinion that this guitar is fantastic. It can play any style of music, but it DOES have very hot pickups. On a multi-effects unit, it can be very hard to get a clean signal, but through an amp it sounds incredible. I'll stop blabbering now and say, I love this guitar.
Put simply, I love this guitar. From the look, feel, and response to what you want to play - this guitar is an outstanding buy for this price. Eventually, I will be looking toward an "upscale" PRS, but for now - I am completely taken with this one.
Had a little over a year now...perfect. Amazing, I play it in standard D tuning and drop the top with regularity. So light, can play on stage all night long. Stock pickups, no problem, hot, but not too hot. Replaced the pickup rings with real "metal" ones \m/ >_< \m/...tastefully covered up the "Tremonti" with a nice white stripe through the headstock & underneath the truss rod cover...looks and plays like a $1500 guitar. I have a 2012 Gibson Clasic Custom and have a hard time being honest with myself about which one I'd rather play. Cons...Almost too light. & the one piece bridge/tailpiece does not alow for anything except height adjustment..not that the intonation is off, but if it was there is nothing you can do about it.
I saw this guitar being pumped out in this months sales flyer. I already have a Korean made PRS SE 25th Anniversary Custom 24, that is a great guitar for the price. So I polished up my barley used Epiphone G-1275 and headed off to my new Guitar Center down the street. I did a trade and returned home with my New Tremonti SE. Man I can't believe how great sounding and feeling this guitar is. Another reviewer has said something to the effect "it plays itself" I'm like yeah right. You know he's not to far off, the thing plays beautifully, and feels just right, perfect shape, and neck, I feel like I'm playing noticeable faster. I don't know how PRS can pump these out for the price, the workmanship is tops and set up great right out of the box. I can't imagine what the PRS models feel and sound like that cost ten times as much ! Until I win the lottery I won't know, but this working man's model feels GREAT. Nice job PRS and Guitar Center for the Sale !
I purchased this guitar in black 4 months ago. First of all, it feels really good in my hands. The neck is a little wider and that really makes playing easier and more comfortable for me. I made a few modification including replacing the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan JB (because I simply love them), but kept the neck pickup because I get a nice rich tone. Also adjusted/lowered the action and replaced strings with EBs. For the price, you cannot go wrong with this PRS guitar. Highly recommend it!
Ok so first off i wanna say i LOVE prs! Over other guitar brands. They make the best quality affordable instruments imo! I've never had any problems with any of my se models and they've always been twice as good as other models that go for the same price. This guitar feels good, plays good, sounds good, and LOOKS good! This is probably one of the best, if not the best, of my guitars right now. I absolutely love it and PRS.
Playable right out of the box, this one is a keeper. I had gone through several guitars and the local GC guys were starting to get fed up with me bringing them back. I knew of the American PRS models from a former bandmate and so I decided to look at the low end stuff. I couldn't be happier until I spend a couple grand on a guitar. I may change the pickups and tuners, but I am glad that PRS put the quality in the body and neck. Flatter neck takes a little getting used to.
