The PRS 2017 SE Mark Tremonti electric guitar is the latest model to be released as part of the long-standing collaboration between the guitar legend and PRS guitars. During a career which has seen his play with multi-award winning bands Creed and Alter Bridge, who've sold several million albums around the world, it is only fitting that he should have a signature model worthy enough to meet his demanding playing style.
Tremonti's playing is uncompromising to say the least, combining savage riffs with elegant lead playing to create harmonic masterpieces. PRS have used mahogany as the tonewood of choice for the body, and thanks to its rich, creamy output and the ability to yield soft-spoken notes or expressive growling, it has a highly versatile tonality to match Tremonti’s unique style. The solid mahogany gives the body a reassuring feel in the hand, but retains a lightweight quality that makes it a joy to wield. The body has been finished with a striking platinum paint job, which has been bound to complete the high quality aesthetic.
Wide profile neck
The maple neck is has been shaped to the wide-fat profile, which is perfect for performing string bends, vibrato, and slides along with tremendous accuracy. The 25" scale length produces a generous sustain, and string tension is upheld meticulously by the beautifully designed nut at the top of the neck. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous-feeling 22-fret rosewood fingerboard to ensure a high-degree of articulation in every note, and is decorated with PRS Bird position inlays.
Tremonti's signature sound can range from subtle and quiet, to searing and hot. The guitar is fitted with two humbuckers - fitted in the neck and bridge position - that each has an individual volume and tone control, as well as a 3-way pickup selector switch. The pickups perfectly accentuate the lush complexity of the tonewoods.
Fitted to the body is the PRS Patented Tremolo bridge with Trem-Up Route, which provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for optimum intonation. The nut upholds string tension with precision, whilst the tuning machines maintain tuning integrity meticulously.
If you're looking for a guitar that plays like a dream, looks like a work of art and sounds like a beast, then the PRS 2017 SE Mark Tremonti electric guitar is the perfect choice.
