PRS Guitar
PRS SE Paul's Guitar Electric Guitar - Faded Blue Burst

The SE Paul’s Guitar delivers a lot of "PRS," starting with tone and versatility. The TCI "S" treble and bass pickups deliver a pure, vintage sound. The SE Paul’s Guitar also features two mini-toggle switches between the volume and tone knobs. This setup allows players to put either or both pickups in true single-coil mode, which delivers the clarity and uniqueness of vintage single-coil tones in both single-coil and humbucking positions. The PRS stoptail bridge is the same machined stoptail with brass inserts as specified on the Core Paul's Guitar.

Donated by Friends of Gunston
