The PRS SE LTD Edition Mark Holcomb Electric Guitar in Whale Blue Satin offers the premium feel and tones that we've come to expect from the Periphery guitarist's signature model. Known for his intricate playing style, Holcomb's model is a streamlined masterpiece that is an unadulterated joy to perform with. Equipped with a pair of his signature Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega pickups, it can deliver roaring tones with unparalleled clarity. Whether you're jamming with friends, hitting the studio or taking to the stage, this beauty is the ideal model for those who like it loud.
Comfortable body profile
The PRS SE Mark Holcomb is a razor-thin model with a gently arched top the rolls off to slender bevelled edges. The deep double-cutaway body profile allows the fretting hand to move towards the highest reaches of the neck with ease. Crafted using mahogany, the body generates a hearty midrange energy for a thunderous tonal foundation. Married to the mahogany is a sublime quilt maple top that has been treated to a hand-rubbed satin finish. As well as providing an elegant finish, the maple rounds out the upper frequency response to maximise tonal depth.
Connected to the body is a sturdy yet supple maple neck, which benefits from a generous 25.5-inch scale length that improves sustain and articulation across every note. The back of the neck is treated to a smooth satin finish, which allows the fretting hand to glide along unimpeded. The wide-thin profile encourages a fearless playing approach, and whether you're laying down chords or performing elaborate technique, you can cruise through each performance in style.
Paired with the neck is a heavenly 24-fret ebony fingerboard, which is adorned with PRS' Bird inlay pattern to guide your way. White fingerboard binding allows your fingers to transition seamlessly between frets, with a flatter 20-inch radius for executing technique with pinpoint accuracy.
Signature Holcomb pickups
The PRS SE Mark Holcomb Limited Edition Signature model wouldn't be the same without the inclusion of his Seymour Duncan "Alpha" and "Omega" humbuckers, fitted in the bridge and neck positions respectively. The Alpha is voiced to combine the coveted qualities of glassy highs with an articulate pick response. The Omega is designed to translate Holcomb's percussive playing style with maximum aggression without losing any clarity and brightness.
Control over the pickups comes in the form of a master volume pot, as well as a tone control with push/pull coil-splitting capabilities to extend your tone-shaping possibilities even further.
With an extensive touring schedule to contend with, Holcomb needed a guitar that could easily cope with life on the road. The PRS SE LTD Edition Mark Holcomb Electric Guitar is equipped with select hardware to make it a reliable workhorse. Fitted to the body is a plate-style (string-through) bridge, which is perfect for anchoring your hand to perform chunky palm-muting. Each string is fixed securely to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to PRS-designed tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision to keep you locked in and ready for action. The guitar is setup and shipped from the factory in Drop C tuning (CGCFAD).
