    Think of this of a well-made LP Jr with PRS quality construction and attention to detail. Easy to play, and yes (see PRS site) you can adjust the intonation at the bridge to go from 9-42 to 10-46 strings (use D'Addarrio). The P-90 style pickup a little less raw than a Gibson, but it is a very nice sounding pickup that the volume control rolled back can change the way it sounds. The only negative I have is that the nut is sharp on the top edges, but this can be rounded off easily. I am told some people have no issue with it. Very nice fret work and setup, meticulous construction. In looking at many of these, to me, the Vintage sunburst seems to more likely have nicer looking matching color of the wood pieces the body is made off - that is the top horn section, simply because of the way the stain is darker in that area. The gig bag is also very nicely made. For the money, you get a very nice guitar vs some other guitar that is cheapened down version of higher priced models. Although this is made in Korea, PRS know-how is there, and their commitment for quality and consistency is there, meaning that out of the box, there is little to worry about. I made one change as I do for most of guitars, I added locking tuners. Grover 406C, mini locking rotomatics they are a are a drop in replacement. In considering my review, I want you to know I own many guitars, ES-335, 62 and 60 reissue strats, American Strat, Washburn HB-35, EPI Sheridan, teles, among many others, and would recommend this SE One to anyone, especially to new students, as I said well-made, little to break, easy to play, and light to carry around.

    I bought the ONE and sent it back about a month later because it was too bright and with no tone control, you're screwed if you don't want to try and finagle it with your amp settings. All PRS had to do was make it with ONE double pot, pull up for tone, push down for volume and the problem would be solved and it could still be called ONE. So, it's too harsh without a tone control and I don't feel like paying a luthier $100 to change it to what I suggest above and add a better soapbar.

    PRS SE One

    By Wil-Wo-Ms

    from Caguas, PR

    I have been playing this beauty for about 3 months and I felt it was time to write about it. This is easily the best guitar I have ever tried, and I have been playing for 26 years, so I have tried quite a few. The factory setup is great. The action is a bit too high, but that can be easily fixed. Personally, I hate when I have to adjust two volume controls and two tone controls on a Les Paul, so the single control on this one was a blessing. I have played different styles on it: Blues, Classic Rock, Alternative, Latin. It is great for any style, although it may be too bright for metal. The Tobacco finish looks great, and the craftmanship is great. I don't expect anything less from a PRS. My advice is to get straplocks, since you don't want this light-weight set-neck on the floor. Overall, it's an excellent guitar for the price, whether you are an intermediate, or experienced player. I don't think this one's for beginners, as the SE (Students Edition) label states.

    Great guitar

    When I first got this guitar I was impressed by the beautiful finish (I have the sunburst) and the great looks of the guitar. Upon playing it I fell in love with the wide neck it has and the sound the p90 gives. The action was good out of the box and I have absolutely no complaints after a month of playing it. The only downside of this guitar is the single pickup and lack of any tone control, however the single p90 pickup does sound excelent on its own no matter what style your playing.

    Sweet Classic Tones

    By JD Picker 59

    from Shreveport, Louisiana

    Ask me a question

    Well, I was looking for a new guitar for myself and had a good idea of what I was looking for. After browsing through a few brands I came upon PRS. I was looking for a price that matched my budget and quaility that would meet what I require in an electric guitar. I have been playing for almost 45 yrs, so it dosen't take very long to tell if a guitar is worth buying and keeping. Well, I came across the SE ONE, It instantly caught my eye. Beautiful color, very simple in design and a real vintage vibe. I ordered it, and when it came I couldn't get it unpacked fast enough.The cherry finish is far more beautiful than the picture of it online. The action was a little high, but no problem. That was easily fixed. The action at the 22nd fret is the thickness of a penny! This lil' beaut plays like a dream, bends like butter and for just having a single P90 style pickup and a single volume knob, you can get a lot of tones by just playing with the volume. It can scream, it can get ultra clean and back it off to about 7 and you can get a great sound for some classic rock chording. I absolutely could not find one single thing wrong with this guitar. So if you want some vintage classic rock tones at a great price and a beautiful instrument to look at, give this sweetie of a guitar a try.

    Fiesty Little Rocker

    By Pappy

    from Great Southwest Deserts

    The setup as received was a pleasant surprise. Just tuned it up. Didn't even change strings, yet! I?ve had to adjust the neck of every other mid $$$ guitar I?ve ever purchased on line (3 of them) But not this one. Close to perfect right out of the box. Love the wide, fat neck!Fit and finish is extremely good. Great looking Tobacco burst. Surprising lightness, but she squeal?s and wails when cranked. Easily tamed by altering your pick attack and adjusting your volume knob.Best mid $$$ new Asian produced guitar I?ve ever played.Check out the PRS SE line of instruments when your in the market for a mid $$$ guitar.

    classicrockin' dream machine

    By joseph harper

    from C.S.,N.Y.

    I had been looking around for a single pup with a P-90for a while and leave to PRS to make it so! I have the vintage cherry finish and this guitar is just crazy. The tones that come out of this thing just by tweaking the volume and your picking attack is unbelievable. From acoustic sounds to straight up rock. If your bored with your same old routine and sound and actualy want your hands to be responcible for your sound instead of a suitcase for of stomp boxes, this is all you.

    May look like a jr but....

    By guitarjonny

    from Wilmington, DE

    Ive had mine for about 3 months now and I was fortunate enough to also play a vintage jr during that time. Of course the jr is a dirty little rock machine but the Se one is more complex. Yeah it can be dirty too but its clean tones are just amazing...Wanna play Beatles or surf tunes? this guitar can do it. Also the finish is gorgeous(I have the sunburst) and the polish on the frets is perfect. Wanna bend the B string till it touches the A? No problem and btw after your done beating on this guitar it'll still be in tune.The neck IS on the fat side so people with small hands may want to play it first but its also light as a feather (lighter then my strat)and very comfortable. Its become the guitar I pick up the most.Btw the musicians gear LP case fits it pretty well.
