This guitar features a diversion from the traditional PRS body shape, with just a single cutaway, bevelled to allow more reach of the upper frets. The top of the body is of Maple with a flame Maple veneer for stunning looks and a crisp tone. PRS designed open coil humbucker pickups in treble and bass position provide the sound, whilst the hardware is designed by PRS, including sealed chrome tuners and wrap around stoptail bridge. Master volume and tone controls, and a three way pickup selector let you set your sound, and the chunky Mahogany body and set neck construction deliver a thick and full-bodied tone. The moon inlays set into the Rosewood fingerboard are extremely decorative and the single cutaway guitars are available in either a Black Cherry or Tobacco Sunburst finish, with the flame Maple veneer shining through. The PRS Special Edition series of electric guitars offers the exceptional quality of Paul Reed Smith at a much more accessible price.
