PRS SE Custom 24 7-String

PRS unveils their first ever 7-String production line instrument, the SE Custom 24 7-String.

This new guitar modifies the PRS Custom 24 design to accommodate an additional low-B string which extends the guitar's low frequency range.

This guitar is PRS response to the growing demand for 7-string setups. And it looks like they are going after the mid-priced market with this new SE guitar.

Even with an added low-b string, PRS retained the original look and feel of the custom 24 design. It will not be easy to tell that this guitar is a 7-string model with just one glance unless ofcourse you count the tuning pegs. Everything looks aesthetically the same.

The body of the SE 7-String features a beveled maple top with flame maple veneer, while the back is made of mahogany. The 25" scale length neck is made of maple, and is topped with a rosewood fretboard. The usual PRS bird inlays liter its 24 frets.

This guitar carries a 7-string version of the SE HFS and SE Vintage Bass pickup. These are controlled by a volume, push/pull tone and a 3-way pickup selector. These pickups are meant to mimic the Maryland-made pickups of the same name that is used on the PRS Custom models from 1991 to 2011.

HFS stands for Hot, Fat and Screams, and PRS describes them as a powerful pickup with balanced aggression, clear highs, strong mid-range, and strong bass. It is meant as the upgraded version of their original Standard treble pickup design. The Vintage Bass pickup on the other hand is the upgraded version of the standard bass pickup and is described to have a warm high-mid sound that works with many musical styles.

Here is the official video demo of the PRS SE Custom 24 7-string:

Expected pricing is expected to be a few notches above the SE Custom 24 6-string model. Further details about this 7-string guitar is available from PRS Guitar

want to hear more than lowest two strings

Let's hear more than a bunch of HM riffs in B. And how about playing the neck pup without massive distortion.

This demo could have been done on a baritone guitar. No need for 7 strings.
