Spec'd by the Opeth frontman.

PRS welcomes frontman Mike Åkerfeldt of Opeth to the PRS family with this signature model SE in an exclusive new color. One of the first SE models to include old-school bird inlays, the Åkerfeldt signature model SE is both handsome and versatile. The 24 jumbo frets, PRS-designed tremolo bridge, SE HFS and SE Vintage Bass pickups, volume and tone control with a 3-way toggle switch all add to this guitar’s unique voice, while the Opeth “O” on the body, tortoise shell finish, and gold hardware give this model a unique look.

Here's what Mikael says about his signature guitar:

"It will be single cutaway mahogany body with a flamed maple top. The neck will be of the wide-fat type and made of 3-piece maple that also goes around to the front of the headstock. Sweet! Ebony fretboard and 24 jumbo frets with extra large side dots for the 5th and 12th fret (I have fluorescent tape on my other guitars so I can sing and still see where I'm at while playing, this will look better!)."

"There will be the old-style PRS bird inlays on the fretboard. One HFS and one Vintage bass pickup thrown in with a 3-way toggle switch. PRS-style tremolo and all the hardware all will be gold (Bling! Well... It's fool's gold or something, but whatever...). The main finish is called 'tortoise shell'. The whole guitar will be high-glossed up apart from the back of the neck which I've requested to be satin matt, which is so much better for me at least."

"There will be a nice little Opeth "O" logo under the bridge as well. I think I might spend the LA nights with it... yes.. kinky! I think it looks stunning, oh yes I do!"

Lars Mikael Åkerfeldt is a Swedish musician who served as the lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter for progressive death-metal band Opeth. He has also been serving as the lead vocalist of death-metal band Bloodbath.

Comments about PRS SE Mikael Akerfeldt Electric Guitar:

I bought one of these used a year ago just because I never had a PRS and wanted to see what it was like. I didn't like the sound at all (thin, watery) until I ran it through a loud amp and cranked it, and it really came alive. It seems to be made for loud rock - it doesn't squeal or shriek, and has a really huge sound when cranked up. Just a novelty for me, but it seems like a good deal, and then there's the whammy bar, too, and the excellent good looks.

      Comments about PRS SE Mikael Akerfeldt Electric Guitar:

      Great guitar , great setup from the factory , finish is beautiful . The pickups are Great also , It takes a while to dial in their sweet spot , but it's no different with any other guitar . My style is more in heavy Genre , and I've heard people complain about these stock pickups , but in a few minutes i had my EQ settings tweaked where they sounded amazing . In the mix of a band , or recording these pickups sound great , alone they sound a little strange . My only complaint about this purchase is This Guitar DID NOT come with a GIG bag , I had to call and complain about it , the guy told me ALL Prs guitars come with a gig bag , and this one did not . So i called and they gave me a discount on a mid range Gig bag . In my opinion no guitar should ever be shipped without at least some sort of gig bag . And i was also looking forward to getting a matching gig bag that said PRS on it , but alas i'll have to settle for a Generic one . All in ALL Great guitar , Great tone , GREAT feel ( the neck felt a bit thick at first but after an hour or so I got used to it ), the neck is super fast , PRS has EPIC fret work , everything was perfect .
