    I'm use to owning & playing Fender American Deluxe Tele's. After by beloved Tele that I owned for many years took a dive into my wood floor - I soul searched for a guitar for about four months. I actually purchased another Amer.Del.Tele at first. Then after deciding it didn't have the same tone as my last Tele - I returned it & got into a Gibson Studio LP. I love LesPauls - but this one just didn't sound right thru my Egnater Renegade (cloudy w/over barring lows). So I returned it for this PRS SE Trem. The sound & craftsmanship is every bit as good - if not better then any guitar I've ever purchased. I liked the idea that that you can adjust the intonation if needed with this guitar. That's the only fault I've found w/PRS guitars. Not with this one though. I don't use the Trem but it's great to have. Some people believe that Trem's actually keep the guitar stable if used sparingly. The idea is that it allows the strings to give a little more. Every thing about this guitar is just about perfect but I did upgrade the tuners. PRS recommended "Grover 406C" tuners. They just dropped right in w/no modification. The guitar stays in tune perfectly. You don't have to worry about upgrading the pickups. They sound fantastic. This guitar is beautiful to hear as well as look at. It's playability is impeccable. It might be the best deal out there right now. This is all coming from a guy who has owned guitars more then twice the price. Must I emphasize that the body is mahogany with a maple top?! So if your looking at Gibson LP's - this is another option at an unheard of price. For me, it was a better option. Sincerely...

    Had this guitar for a while and frets started to buzz. Neck is irreversably warped. Nothing that can be done. It gets worse every month and it's become a bit of a joke around the house as it's now visible across the room. Likely the dry climate here didn't help, but this shows insuffiecient drying time before cutting the wood during construction, kiln or otherwise. Will never buy another SE.

    PRS SE Trem

    By Josef-nDatB

    from Long Island, NY

    I purchased this in the tobacco sunburst color from MF about a month ago. Firstly, the guitar is beautiful. From what I understand, this is the last year PRS will be manufacturing this in anything but black or white. You will instead get bird inlays. Personally I like the moon inlays and the flame on this guitar is striking. The first thing I noticed when I picked up the guitar is the supreme resonance. I tapped it all around the body / neck and it really gives you that musical knock that you would expect from an American made PRS. The neck is a tad bit chunky but certainly comfortable. I see a lot of complaints about the tuners on this guitar. They aren't as bad as I was expecting upon reading the reviews. They definitely are not of the same quality as the rest of the guitar. I ordered some Schaller locking tuners to give the head a little more mass and also to keep me in tune longer. The pickups are solid. I will probably be throwing a DiMarzio D-Activator Bridge and a DiMarzio Breed Neck pickup in it though. Overall, After a pickup and tuner swap, this guitar is a steal at $590-620. Add $140 for pickups and $60 for tuners and you are getting a $1000 guitar for $800. The bottom line is that this thing plays nice out of the box. Much more quality than a mexican made strat in my opinion. For a beginner or casual player, it is perfect as is. For the more discerning guitar player, it is going to take another $200 - $300 or so to make this a guitar that you won't want to put down.

    PRS Singlecut

    By ClaptonJr.-Y1NaX

    from Annapolis

    The Drummer in my band has this guitar and I play it frequently. When I first found out that my drummer had a PRS guitar, I was very excited, thinking it was going to be a $5,000+ Custom 24, and to my misfortune I was introduced to a plastic and junky guitar. Frankly I wish PRS would have never made the SE guitars, they are a disgust to their name and their reliable quality. But this guitar still is a PRS, and if you dont have the money to buy a real PRS guitar and just want the name, this is the guitar for you.Contrary to the fact that it is a PRS, this guitar is steady but light weight, has a comfortable neck, and a reliable tone. You can only get one humbucker/single-cut sound out of this, so if you looking for a guitar that is diverse in sounds, try a Stratocaster or any PRS guitar that?s not an SE.

    Perfect for the price

    By Bizc8

    from Miami, FL

    I just got this guitar and I love it, I played it for hours and, for the price you could not get anything better. You can go from a nice warm clean to a crunchy distortion sound, and vice versa, so it's very versatile. Some times goes ot of tune if you use the trem to mucho, but u can get that fixed with a nice set of locking tuners, but if you're not a tremolo guy, it wont give u any trouble. Perfect balance, perfect axe IMHO :D

    Surpassing Expectations ...

    As a guitar player of 40 years, I've come to realize that what appears to be quality sometimes is not when it comes to instruments. I own perhaps a handful of guitars that exceed appearances and have surpassed my expectations - The PRS SE Singlecut is now counted among those few.Do not be fooled by the somewhat thinner body of the Singlecut. I have an Epi LP Custom that I thought was heavy and my new Singlecut is at least a full pound heavier. The fit and finish on this guitar is nothing short of astonishing, considering the price point. The maple veneer top (over a maple cap) is done tastefully (not overly flamed) and the deep claret of the mahogany back and neck is silky smooth. The finish rivals the US-made PRS guitars, IMHO (I know, I own a '02 PRS CE22). But there are a few down sides to consider.Not real impressed with either the tuners or the pickups. The quality of the trem unit is solid and stable, but the tuners really downgrade the whole affair. I found the pickups smooth and clear on at moderate volume levels and a clean amp setting, but they muddy up badly when pushed harder. They lose a lot of definition.Aside from these two minor inconveniences (which I will remedy with a Tone Zone/Air Norton pickup replacement and set of Kluson vintage tulips), the only other thing lacking is a good case. Fortunately, I have a backup LP case that fits the Singelcut nicely, as the supplied gig bag does not ascend to the same quality features as the guitar itself.All-in-all, a great value for the money, and with a little more investment, you'll essentially end up with a USA PRS Singlecut. It's a keeper.

    Great Product

    By Old School Shredder

    from California

    I didn't expect this kind of quality from a Korean guitar. The main thing preventing me from purchasing an American single cut is the satisfaction I have with this much less expensive guitar. I've compared to the US equivalent and the SE holds up very well. Sure the US pickups and tuners are better, but build quality and playability are very close. You can't beat it for the price.

    Best Guitar for the money, bar none

    By Guitarman1146

    from Oneida, NY

    I have owned an '86 PRS for 21 years and recently bought both the Custom 24 (wine red) and this SC with tremolo. I can assure anyone that these guitars meet the high standards of PRS for the money. Admittedly the tuners could be better, but changing them to your preference is a simple $40 to $50 fix. Some like manual twist-type locking tuners but I highly recommend the Grovers as they are very close to the original PRS auto-locks. The only other thing I personally prefer is a HS case rather than the bag. I'd also suggest that for ANY guitar, you spend $15 for Dunlop Strap-Loks or something similar to insure your strap stays ON the axe and ON your shoulder. Get this guitar into your arsenal and you may end up with dust on all your others. You can't ask for any axe better at this price. Top stars overall !!!

    Won't let you down

    By Sean Marshall

    from New York City, New York

    I've owned the guitar for about 9 months now and believe me, i've used it to the extreme, whether constant practice or preforming. It hasn't let me down yet. It may go out of tune every now and then, but the action remains great, the feel is amazing, the sound is flawless. Overall i have no complaints. It's a great guitar for intermeadiates as well as professionals. Trust me, when you buy it you'll love it, and you won't have that worry in your stomach that you just wasted your hard-earned money on something less than worthy.

    Great guitar! Buy it!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    If you change the tuners, this guitar is just perfekt. I tried one in my local musicstore were the tuners were changed to the expensive onces. Loved it. So nice. Buy this guitar, and change the tuners. Then you wont go wrong!Pickups, great, really hot, neck, really smooth. Not an ibanez, but really thick neck that just holds. I didnt use tremolo, I aint much a tremolo guy. but still, very nice guitar!
