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 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!
This is a really cool guitar, and slightly different to what PRS are mostly known for. The Starla has got a retro vibe to it, both in looks and sound. The PRS-designed DS-02 humbuckers are really different to their other pickups - they’re fairly low output, they’re quite bright and there’s a bit of airiness and jangle about them; to my ear, they’re not far sonically from a P-90. You can split them too for single-coil tones - it’s really versatile and really fun to play. If you’re looking for something a little different, but that’s built to a great standard and gives you a variety of amazing sounds, I can’t recommend SE Starla enough."

With its retro-inspired vibe and appointments, the SE Starla Stoptail is an approachable but distinctive guitar. The all-mahogany body paired with a two-piece adjustable stoptail bridge offers a woody, warm midrange tone, while the DS-02 treble and bass pickups add a bright high-end bark that allows the SE Starla Stoptail to cut through the mix. Turn up the volume and the DS-02 pickups go from clean and crisp to driving with rich harmonic overtones. The electronics layout features a 3-way blade pickup switch with a push/pull tone control, so the humbuckers can split into single coils for even more versatility.
Other features include a 22 fret, 25” scale length wide fat mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, bird inlays, and pickguard assembly. Tone, feel, and style are all waiting for you with the SE Starla Stoptail.
