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.

Outstanding Value

By Mightybucka

from Milwaukee,WI

This guitar is certainly a benchmark for value in an electric guitar. For the limitations of one P90 pickup and a single volume knob, this guitar can deliver an extremely wide variety of great tones. Anything in the classic rock genre can be played with a convincing degree of realism. It does AC/DC well with distortion, and Knopfler can be easily conjured with a clean,, fender-esque setting. The build quality is excellent, and neck playability is great. If this guitar had to be my only guitar, I could survive. If it had existed when I started my collection, it would probably be my only piece. It's that good.

Sweet Classic Tones

By Quincy

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.

Simple, but great!!!

The PRS SE One is truly a great guitar for the money. What you see is what you get. Plug and play and wail away. Put some crunch on this one and stand by to be wow'ed. The quality is top-notch and the finish (I have the red) is awesome. The neck is fast the action true. If you are looking for a good ole' time Rock n' roll guitar, look no further!

Les Paul Junior Junior

By Max Mel

from Twin Cities Mn.

I wanted a mahogany P-90 guit without paying for a Gibson. Thinner body,nice sunburst,set neck. Neck is a bit wider like the Gibson. If you like a chunky neck you'll love this one. I do. Intonation is good and wrap around bridge seems very stable. I love the vintage looks. There is no tone control. If you play through an amp you just adjust it. I play alot through a Vox Tone Lab and it sounds great. The treble can get a bit harsh but it's not a deal breaker for me. I would rather have the tone there and make adjustments than not have it there in the first place. I might put in a dual control pot and see how that works. I don't know who makes the pup but it sounds just right for me. Maybe the best thing for me is it's not noisy like a P-90 guit can be. I was hoping a single pup would be better than two for noise and it is. If you are attracted to this guitar you are looking for a certain sound and action and vibe. This has it. There is a nice gig bag also. Much nicer than most.This was much cheaper than a Junior but the quality is at least as good and there is plenty of MOJO.

May look like a jr but....

By guitarjonny

from Wilmington, DE

See all my reviews

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.

Rock Machine!!!!!

By uprmstudio

from South Sioux City, NE

This guitar absolutely rocks. It could be a regular PRS instead of an SE and I couldn't tell the difference. It was setup perfectly right out of the box. The finish was stunning as well. The vintage cherry is very beautiful. The frets are great. The P90 pickup really barks. You really don't need the tone knob. Adjusting the volume knob will get you a bunch of different tones. This guitar is really fun to play. I have hardly put it down since I got it. The padded gig bag is great too. Very high quality. All I can say is that this is the best guitar in this price range that I have ever played.
