PRS release a new SE Singlecut signature model for Black Stone Cherry frontman Chris Robertson. The PRS SE Chris Robertson Signature model will be a limited edition sold only throughout 2016 and comes in a single colour choice – Black Stone Cherry Burst, of course…
Frontman of arguably the most successful Southern Rock outfit of recent times, Black Stone Cherry’s Chris Robertson has teamed up with PRS Guitars to create a limited edition signature SE model, exclusive to the European market.
A long-term PRS player, Robertson is a devotee of the Singlecut body style and his new guitar is based on this classic PRS design with a Mahogany body, bevelled Maple top and flame veneer. The vintage feel is extended with a 24.5” scale length, 22-fret Mahogany neck with a chunky Wide Fat profile.
The onboard electrics also reflect Chris’s obsession with old-school tone – a US PRS 57/08 humbucker in the bridge position is partnered with an SE Soapbar pickup at the neck – harnessed to a simple three-position toggle switch and volume/tone for each pickup – to allow access to a wide range of distinctive and characterful rock’n’roll voices. The workmanlike simplicity is reflected in the rock-solid but highly adjustable PRS stoptail bridge.
“I have never been so lost for words in my life – till I got this guitar with my name on it. Just so you are aware I play this guitar every single night. We will be on tour in the new year and I’ll have a lot of these with me – they are on sale today! I hope you guys truly enjoy this guitar as much as I do” – Chris Robertson, Black Stone Cherry
