The PRS 2018 SE SVN Seven String Electric Guitar takes the DNA of the awesome Custom 24, and beefs it up with an additional string, and - as per the requests of many PRS customers - an extended scale length of 26.5-inches for improved feel and tone. With pickups modified to bring the best out of this beauty, and looks to die for, the PRS 2018 SE SVN is a glorious addition to the PRS stable. Whether you're making the transition from a standard to an extended range model, or are a seasoned performer with a 7-string, PRS have gone to great lengths to maximise comfortability for all players.
Classic body profile
The SE SVN adopts the sleek body contours made popular by PRS' Custom 24, with a slim depth accompanied by a slightly arched top that tapers off with sweetly bevelled edges. The result is a figure-hugging feel that makes this a very comfortable 7-string to perform with, whether you're seated or standing.
Built using mahogany, the SVN generates a confident mid-range energy with a warm heart. Paired with mahogany is a gorgeous bevelled maple top, which reinforces the upper mids and highs to produce exceptional clarity across the top-end. The flame maple veneer ensures that the eye-catching style of the SVN is exhibited for all to admire.
Delightfully playable neck
Fitted to the body is a divine maple neck, which is shaped to the 7 string "wide thin" profile to guarantee a speedy playing feel. The extended 26.5-inch scale length ensures that string tension isn't too slack or too tight, but just right, and lends itself beautifully to delivering a balanced tonal offering in the process. Married to the neck is a luxurious 24-fret fingerboard, which is home to PRS' customary Bird position inlays to guide your way in unique style.
Highly versatile pickups
The SE SVN Seven String Electric Guitar features a pair of PRS 85/15 "S" pickups, which are modelled on their coveted USA-made offerings. Voiced to bring out the best in your SVN, the pickups are equipped with a master volume knob, as well as a push/pull master tone knob, which allows you to coil tap the humbuckers to get a raw single-coil tone, and a 3-way pickup selector switch.
Therefore, not only do you have an extra string to play with, but you also have a plethora of tonal options between the pickups on offer and the coil tap. Whether you play Jazz, Funk, Rock, Metal, Country, etc. this guitar has the ability to help you find the tone you want, in effortless style.
As we've come to expect from the team at PRS, the 2018 SE SVN Seven String Electric Guitar is built with workhorse-like qualities that make it perfect for honing your skills on, and then taking to the stage with. The body is home to the string-through body plate-style 7-string bridge, which anchors each string securely to opimtise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to PRS-designed tuners that maintain tuning integrity with dutiful precision throughout the most energetic of performances.
