New PRS SE Mark Holcolm signature model released. Following the success of the 2015 USA Core PRS signature model Mark & the PRS team have worked together again to deliver what the fans asked for – 24-frets, 25.5” extended scale length, a wide thin satin Maple neck with 20” radius Ebony fretboard and the Mark Holcomb Signature Seymour Duncan Alpha & Omega pickups…
“The feedback on the 2015 USA Core model was so good on all ends that we began talking about the potential of putting together a more affordable model and this is where the idea for the SE came about. This guitar is an example of PRS listening to its fan-base and me listening to our fan-base and taking down the main aspects of the 2015 guitar – the fretboard radius, the scaling, the pickups – pretty much every aspect of the 2015 model and carrying them over into a more affordable guitar” – Mark Holcolm, Periphery.
The SE Mark Holcomb model truly stands on its own in the PRS lineup and delivers addictive playability thanks to some unique specifications, including a 24-fret, 25.5” scale length wide thin satin maple neck with 20” radius ebony fretboard. Holcomb’s signature pickups provide the right amount of output and articulation whether you’re playing sophisticated chords or solos and whether you’re playing alone or working in the mix of a band. Other specifications include a quilted maple veneer, black chrome hardware, and a 3-way blade pickup switch with push/pull tone knob for coil splitting.
“With my SE signature model, we managed to capture all of the defining characteristics of my Maryland-made guitar and turn it into a streamlined, less-costly package. It is an incredibly special instrument, and one that is now the primary focus of my rig in the studio and onstage” – Mark Holcomb, Periphery
