PRS SE Marty Friedman
Paul Reed Smith Guitars unveils their latest SE Signature electric guitar, the PRS SE Marty Friedman.
Paul Reed Smith's Subtractive Theory
This new black single cutaway electric guitar meets the demands of the popular guitarist that previously handled lead duties for Megadeth and Cacophony.
The star inlays on the fretboard were said to have been personally picked by Friedman, providing a distinct look for his first signature instrument under the PRS brand.
The guitar features a mahogany body with a beveled maple top, finished in black. The neck is made of mahogany with a scale length of 25". A 22 fret rosewood fretboard serves as the playground for your fretting hand, carved into what PRS calls as a "Wide Fat" neck profile shape.
The guitar comes equipped with two PRS designed SE humbucking pickups that follows a traditional dual humbucker format, something that Friedman continues to favor over single-coil or even modern split-coil setups.
Complementary tone shaping is provided via a straightforward 3-way toggle switch that is found on the upper bout much like a Les paul, and independent volume and tone knobs for each of the two pickups.
Other hardware include an adjustable stoptail and vintage designed tuners all finished in nickel to contrast the dark finish of both the headstock and the body.
Marty commented: "The PRS Marty Friedman signature model was developed over the course of recording ‘Inferno’ - my most 'guitar demanding' album yet. Its sound is all over that record. PRS has finally created my ultimate go-to guitar."
Pricing information for the new SE Marty Friedman will soon be available, you can head over to PRS Guitars for further details.
