Setting out its stall with similar appointments to the SE Custom the PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow offers the same high quality of tone, superb playability and craftsmanship, that competes with its Maryland-made counterparts, all at a fantastic price but with the addition of a hollow chamber and modern f-hole.
The PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow with Bigsby, as the name suggests, comes factory-fitted with a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece - for all the pitch bending you could want.
The legendary combination of a maple top, with a flame maple veneer on this model, and a mahogany body, is utilised on the PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow. Commonly paired together, these woods give you all the rich, warm low tones of the mahogany and the bright, snappy highs of the maple. The addition of the flame maple veneer really adds to the beauty of this already stunning guitar.
The addition of a hollow chamber and modern f-hole to the PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow is not purely aesthetic as they lower the weight of the guitar, push the midrange tones and add more natural reverb. A small addition but it adds that much more flexibility to the tone and makes the guitar a lot more comfortable to handle, and more importantly, to play.
For those who prefer a more meaty neck the PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow offers a wide, fat mahogany neck topped by a rosewood fingerboard. The fingerboard itself has 22 frets with position markers represented by classic PRS bird inlays.
The electronics of the PRS SE Custom Semi-Hollow are set out pretty simply with a pair of PRS Designed SE humbuckers offering all the power you’ll need, in the form of a Treble humbucker & a Bass humbucker. Control lies with master volume & master tone knobs, along with a three-way selector switch.

These guitars are amazing and having this specific one is awesome. It has a great verity of tones but won't quite make it to the metal without a pedal, but still a perfect guitar that goes into an almost classical sound. Worth every penny.
