PRS guitars are known for their excellent build quality, superb tonewoods and fantastic finishing touches. Working closely with the man himself, PRS collaborated with Bernie Marsden - of Whitesnake and UFO fame - on his signature model, the PRS SE Bernie Marsden Electric Guitar. Active in the music world for over thirty years and known for his bluesy style, here is a man who knows what he wants from a guitar and won’t settle for second best. Now that fine model is available as part of an extremely limited run in striking flamed maple.
The best tonewoods
The body is crafted from a sublime combination of tonewoods, giving this guitar power with detailed clarity. Mahogany makes up the back and sides with its deep resounding character, giving the guitar a solid mid to low-end foundation. Married to this is the outstanding flamed maple, completed in a glossed finish to give this model a truly unique aesthetic.
Fitted firmly and carefully to the body is a delightfully supple mahogany neck. The neck offers a comfortable and accommodating feel - perfect for any playing style. Attached to the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, home to 22-frets along well-proportioned 24.5" scale length. The mahogany/rosewood combination ensures a responsive playing feel, with clarity and articulation across the fingerboard.
The PRS SE Bernie Marsden is fitted with a pickup compliment that includes two humbuckers in the form of the PRS Designed SE 245 Treble & SE 245 Bass pickups. This combination produces rich, complex tones, which reflect the timbre of the tonewoods perfectly. A single tone and two volume knobs control these, along side a three-way toggle pickup selector situated conveniently at the upper bout.
The PRS SE Bernie Marsden is fitted with a PRS designed stoptail to provide a seamless connection between the strings and body - lending itself splendidly to the reassuringly sturdy playing feel of this fantastic guitar.
The PRS SE Bernie Marsden is a true reflection of the man himself - enigmatic and uncompromising. The limited edition flamed maple finish only serves to make this model even more unique a treasure that is sure to become an instant classic, admired for many years to come.
