Well, the busy folks over at Paul Reed Smith (PRS) agreed to send me an SE One for review a few months back, but unfortunately the guitar has never materialized, and to be honest, with the chaos I’ve been through recently I probably won’t have time for another hands-on review for at least the next few weeks anyways.
So seeing as how I’ve gotten a number of inquiries about these new, lower-cost, imported instruments, I thought I should at least point you towards Guitar Player Magazine‘s new review, which is available in PDF format from the PRS website.
Models covered include the seriously stripped-down SE One (I’m diggin’ that single soapbar pickup,) SE Custom Semi-Hollow, and the strikingly purple Paul Allender Model.
You can also catch all three of these guitars in action via Paul Reed Smith’s customarily short but sweet video demos––SE One, SE Custom Semi-Hollow, and Paul Allender Model. Street prices are starting at a very reasonable $499 for the SE One…
