Since 1985, PRS guitars have made their way to the hands of many iconic artists, including Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews and Vernon Reid. With that in mind, you don't have to be a rock star to enjoy everything a PRS guitar offers, and their SE line makes that obvious. With a quick look through this section, you'll notice that SE guitars and basses boast everything that makes the PRS name so respected in the music world, but carry a price tag that makes them accessible to beginners and amateur-level enthusiasts.
Whether you're a metal shredder, an indie experimentalist or a funk rock groover, PRS has a guitar or bass for every taste in their SE Series. For all you six-string slingers, turn your attention to the SE Standard 24 Electric Guitar. A fresh take on Paul Reed Smith's hallmark model, the SE Standard 24 features set-neck construction, a PRS-Designed tremolo, and HFS and Vintage bass pickups for a warm, round tone. Or, if it's an acoustic-electric cutaway that you're after, check out the Se Angelus A10. Sporting a rosewood fretboard with bird inlays, all-mahogany construction, special bracing design and loaded with top-notch undersaddle electronics, your next live performance will ring loud and clear for all to hear when you're armed with this beauty.
The SE Series also has an impressive selection of basses to choose from, and the SE Kestrel Electric Bass Guitar delivers the exceptional craftsmanship and tone you'd expect from PRS. Featuring an alder body, maple/walnut neck and equipped with PRS-designed single coil pickups, this bass is incredibly versatile, and overall a perfect mix of premium tonewoods and electronics.
Ever since Paul Reed Smith introduced the SE Series in 2001, these affordable guitars and basses have been championed around the globe for their easy playability, crisp sound quality and impressive design. The goal of the SE series was to give musicians of all skill levels an axe that would encourage them to keep playing - after all, practice makes perfect. Of course, they definitely succeeded in their mission, and the second you strap one on, plug in and start strumming, you'll realize quickly how hard it is to stop - not that you'll want to.
