PRS SE Zach Myers Signature 2014
PRS introduces the second SE signature model for Shinedown's frontman, this time featuring a chambered f-hole.

This guitar is the result of months of design and consultations between the PRS SE team and Zach, and the result is a very different axe when compared to his first signature guitar that was released in 2010.
The most notable difference would be the thinline/semi-hollow mahogany body with beveled maple cap. According to PRS, this design helps the guitar "provides smooth mid-range tones with a natural, resonant internal reverb", although I think it made more difference on the aesthetics aspect.
Like the first version, this one comes with a flame maple veneer that gives the guitar a "striped" look, only this time it comes with a Trampas Green finish, which in my opinion gave the instrument a more elegant appeal compared to the first iteration.
The neck is made of mahogany and is topped by a rosewood fretboard. It follows the same wide fat profile that Zach finds comfortable to play with and features a scale length of 24.5". Familiar "Bird" inlays serve as fret markers on the guitar's 22-fret fingerboard.
Instead of having three pickups, the 2014 SE Zach Myers Signature now come with just two zebra style humbuckers, a PRS SE 245 Treble and PRS SE 245 Bass. Controls include a 3-way toggle switch and independent volume and tone knobs for each pickup. Other features include PRS Adjustable stoptail and Vintage style tuners.
Pricing information is not yet available, but it probably will be within the same range as the street price of the original signature, which is at around $680. Visit PRS Guitars for more information.
