Overview

The band Periphery has become a force to be reckoned within the progressive metal scene thanks to their complex rhythms and soaring melodies. Guitarist Mark Holcomb helps achieve this full, lethal sound with his PRS guitars and signature Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega pickups. PRS and Holcomb have worked closely together to develop a truly unique guitar for the SE Series lineup.

"With my SE signature model, we managed to capture all of the defining characteristics of my Maryland-made guitar and turn it into a streamlined, less-costly package. It is an incredibly special instrument, and one that is now the primary focus of my rig in the studio and onstage." – Mark Holcomb, Periphery  

The SE Mark Holcomb model truly stands on its own in the PRS lineup and delivers addictive playability thanks to some unique specifications, including a 24-fret, 25.5 in. scale length wide thin satin maple neck with 20 in. radius ebony fretboard.

Holcomb’s signature pickups provide the right amount of output and articulation whether you’re playing sophisticated chords or solos, and whether you’re playing alone or working in the mix of a band. Other specifications include a quilted maple veneer, black chrome hardware, and a 3-way blade pickup switch with push/pull tone knob for coil splitting. Includes gig bag.

Great if you love to tune your guitar.

By GuitarVue

from NYC

Comments about PRS SE Mark Holcomb Electric Guitar:

It's ok. Has some tuning stability issues. The tuners are not solid. They should be replaced if you buy one if you expect to stay in tune. The PU are not very hot. They seem low powered. I often think of selling mine. Plus the satin neck has a fine line. They didn't taper the change. It's just a line. Satin/Gloss. Not a good look. Mark does a great job selling the SE. I would pass knowing what I know now.

    Comments about PRS SE Mark Holcomb Electric Guitar:

    For years I have searched and traded with the Guitar Center, looking for that sound, that feel on my hands, the looks of the guitar, these two guitars have that sound that feel and looks. I did my search shopping at the Guitar Center, over the years ! I now own two of these guitars, (SE) thanks to the Guitar Center and its employees, I love these guitars, these two guitars are that great! At this price? I had to have two ! At the At At the Guitar Center, I can buy a guitar, take it home, try it on my equipment, if its not what I need? I just take it back, trade up or down, get a different guitar, what ever price range is required, I just pay the difference or get a refund, I have 45 days to decide, if the guitar is a keeper or not ? I can not beat that ! I JUST TRY AGAIN! The Guitar Center and its employees, will help any way they can, they are GREAT! There are no questions asked, when I am in the trading mood. The Guitar Center is a great place to shop and search for what I need ! THESE ARE PERFECT MEDAL GUITARS! THANKS !

    Comments about PRS SE Mark Holcomb Electric Guitar:

    I had been looking at Marks sig SE for quite some time now, watching videos, checking reviews and overall looking at pics and looking at the specs. First off the Holcomb burst finish is great, only thing I'd like more is if it was matte like his USA models. The satin neck is dream with the 20" fretboard, it's so easy to play any style you want. This is my first experience with really nice pickups and let me to you what, these things are amazingly clean and precise. They react exactly how you would think with being Marks sigs. I've had this guitar for about 3 months now and I absolutely love it! If you're a fan of Periphery and or you're looking for a nicely balanced guitar, this thing will do the job in whatever style of music you're into and more. The only thing I would suggest after owning it ( I have yet to do it) is to replace the tuners for better stability. It's not horrible, but not the best, even Mark replaced the tuners to locking on the one he tours with, which I plan on doing eventually.

    Comments about PRS SE Mark Holcomb Electric Guitar:

    I bought this thinking it'd be mediocre, I was dead wrong. This guitar feels like a more expensive PRS, I cannot believe this is an SE. If you're on the fence about it, just do it people. JUST DO IT.

      Comments about PRS SE Mark Holcomb Electric Guitar:

      I've been used to locking tuners on my JP70, so the stock PRS ones had to be switched for Schaller's locking machine heads. Stays in tune and plays beautifully at AGCFAD. My playing is somehow better just adjusting to this instrument. Try it and see if the unusual (for a PRS) specs feel right for you too.

      The quality of this guitar is extraordinary. Beautiful craftsmanship. The only con I have for this is that the nut is absolute garbage and keeps making it go out of tune.

      I bought this guitar in mid 2016 and its great, I did have a small issue with intonation (at higher frets) at first and had to trade the guitar in at prs for a different mark holcomb model and its been great every since..
