What Reidys say...
"The SE range of PRS guitars provides players with superb playability, amazing build quality, impeccable sound and beautiful finishes - all the while keeping an eye on the price. SE stands for 'Student Edition', though these are much more than that! If you're just starting to play the guitar, something like this will be a great one to get you going, however you'll also see them in the hands of professionals (Joe Walsh uses one with The Eagles sometimes, for example). These SE models are made in Korea, to an amazing standard. They've got a mahogany body topped with a piece of maple, as is traditional for this style of guitar, and each one comes shipped with a nice padded gigbag. The quality really is impressive on these SE models - come in and try one out!
When these were announced at NAMM 2019, we thought they’d do really well - we were right. It’s the first time we’ve seen an SE version of Paul’s (as in Mr. Paul Reed Smith himself) Guitar. It’s a more affordable, Korean-built version of the Private Stock model that he uses - and you’d think that he knows a thing or two about guitars! The humbucking pickups are vintage voiced, so immediately, you’re in classic rock/blues territory, however, each one can be individually switched into true single coil mode giving you a wide range of tones to choose from. This means it’s incredibly versatile. There are three classy finishes to choose from, and all come with a Wide Fat neck profile - a little thicker than most other SE models, but still super playable. Paul wanted to get this guitar absolutely right before he put it into production, and we definitely reckon it’s been worth the wait!"

“The SE Paul’s Guitar is a great example of design, engineering, and teamwork. It’s as close to home as we could get inside of the SE Series, and I am very proud of it,” Paul Reed Smith.
The SE Paul’s Guitar delivers a lot of “PRS,” starting with tone and versatility. The TCI “S” treble and bass pickups deliver a very 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. This is the first model to offer this style of electronics outside of the Private Stock and Core lines.
“The Paul’s Guitar, like the Modern Eagle before it, has always been about Paul’s latest discoveries in guitar making. To bring this guitar into the SE Series, we knew the tone, functionality, and playability had to be right and had to be consistent,”
said Jack Higginbotham, COO, PRS Guitars. “We feel this guitar offers a lot of value to players.”
The SE Paul's Guitar is available in three colors, reminiscent of PRS's earliest guitar offerings: Amber, Aqua, and Fire Red.
