Get that PRS feel, at a price that won’t cost you years and years of gigs to pay off! The SE Singlecut Trem proves that awesome things do come in at reasonable prices. It’s like Paul and the whole crew at Paul Reed Smith decided to pack as many pro features as possible into a budget-minded instrument. And, really, when you get your hands and ears on the SE Singlecut Trem, you’ll have a hard time believing how sweetly this baby plays and sings. The SE Singlecut Trem features a solid mahogany body with a flame maple top to catch eyes, plus, it’s got classic PRS bird inlays on the fretboard! Two PRS-designed humbucking pickups breathe fire when you want them to, and the included cordura gig bag keeps your gorgeous SE Singlecut Trem safe during your journeys. Nice.
The SE Singlecut Trem features the same mahogany body, maple top and flame maple veneer as PRS’s popular SE Singlecut but has been set with a PRS designed tremolo bridge. A 22-fret, wide-fat mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard adds to the rich tones of this instrument. The PRS designed treble and bass humbuckers give you a variety of great sounds for whatever style of music you play.
A wide range of tonal possibilities.
The SE Singlecut Trem
PRS Perfection Within Reach
The SE Singlecut features a maple top with flamed maple veneer, and is available in translucent finishes. These new models come with solid mahogany backs and necks and provide a level of quality not seen in guitars in this price range.
Wide Fat Neck
The Wide Fat neck has the same nut width as the Wide Thin neck but has a big comfortable profile, similar to PRS’s Regular neck. Because of its strength and longer “heel,” the Wide Fat neck produces warm tones with lots of sustain.
Back in 1984, Paul Reed Smith was granted a patent on his tremolo system. The design elements are simple and resemble the traditional fulcrum tremolo but with some important differences that help ensure return to pitch and a lack of tuning instability. All adjustment screws are inset and made of brass, and there are no rough edges. The tremolo arm stays where you put it, and won’t wobble or break off.
The SE Singlecut Trem is available in Black and Tobacco Sunburst finishes.
PRS finishes their instruments with a polyester basecoat and acrylic urethane topcoat. Acrylic urethane looks and feels the closest to the old nitro-cellulose finishes but without the finish checking.
