For many years, PRS have been expertly crafting top quality electric guitars, and the SE 2017 Tremonti Custom Limited Run is another edition from the long line of collaborative models made with Mark Tremonti. Tremonti has sold millions of albums all over and played in titan rock bands such as Creed and Alter Bridge. Now PRS have honoured him again in the form of a Custom Limited Run guitar.
SE Tremonti Body
Fans of both Tremonti and PRS know exactly what to expect in terms of the shape of the guitar's body. Featuring a single cutaway, the body provides you with full access to the higher registers of the neck. The body is constructed entirely from mahogany, using a thick cut of this elegant-sounding tonewood to produce a warm tone that rings on with lengthy sustain.
PRS have released a new range of guitars which feature new exotic body tops, and this particular model is fitted with a luxurious Spalted Maple top. The natural spalting of the wood can be seen clearly, giving this Custom model a unique look.
The SE 2017 Tremonti Custom is fitted with a slick maple neck which is shaped to a wide-thin profile which is accommodating for any player to enjoy any style. The neck has a smooth rosewood fingerboard which features 22 frets that can be explored with ease thanks to the single cutaway in the body. The frets are decorated with the customary PRS bird inlays.
Accomplished Tremonti Electronics
Mark Tremonti is capable of creating a wide range of sounds, from sizzling solos to crystal clear, intricate fingerpicking. To best transfer this sound, he has chosen Tremonti "S" bass and treble humbucker pickups to amplify this Limited Edition model. Featured in the neck and bridge positions, these powerful humbuckers have been made to Tremonti's desired specifications to deliver great tone and sustain. Controls include an individual volume and tone control for each pickup, and a 3-way toggle pickup switch.
Despite the Tremonti Custom coming in at a fairly low and affordable price, the hardware is still superb quality. Fitted to the lower bout of the body is a PRS patented tremolo bridge which has a Trem-Up route, so you can bend the tremolo arm in various directions to perform bends and dive bombs. The headstock has the classic curved shape and is equipped with reliable nickel tuners.
As soon as you play the PRS SE 2017 Tremonti Custom Limited Run electric guitar, you will be astounded at its outstanding sound and quality appointments for such a low price.
