OVERVIEW

A signature axe for Opeth's "old school shredder"

The SE Fredrik Åkesson signature model features a single-cutaway body with an extra-deep cutaway for better access to the upper frets, a maple top with quilted maple veneer and thick mahogany back, a 24-1/2" scale length, 22-fret Wide/Fat mahogany neck with ebony fretboard and PRS bird inlays, and a TonePros adjustable stoptail bridge. The Åkesson also comes standard with a volume and tone control for each pickup and a 3-way toggle on the upper bout, but this traditional configuration is inverted with the treble controls in front of the bass controls to mirror Åkessons preferred setup, which allows easy access to the bridge pickup controls.

PRS welcomes Fredrik Åkesson guitarist and backing vocalist for the landmark prog metal band Opeth to the family of SE signature artists. Veteran of the bands Talisman, Krux, and Arch Enemy, Åkesson has been described by Opeth's frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt (also an SE signature artist) as, an old-school shredder. This background along with Åkesson's knowledge of theory and scales has allowed him to reinforce Opeths trademark sound with fast riffs and virtuoso playing.

Includes PRS deluxe gig bag.

Comments about PRS SE Fredrik Akesson Signature Electric Guitar:

I've been playing since 14 years old, and as far as age goes, let's say I'm a grandparent many times over... I have an extensive collection of guitars, and frankly, I don't know why I waited so long to get a PRS. I love the warm fat tones I get out of this guitar...it actually makes me want to play, and it's very hard to put down, and so now that I have played it, this is just the beginning...
It's kind of like eating chips...you just can't have one!!
