Wow that is nice.
My tabacco sunburst SE 24 should be here this week or next.
Never tried a 7 string before.

I don't think that should stop you :D

These look fantastic, and such a great move making them an SE rather than a USA model in my books. Can't wait to try one! Though my wallet is deeply concerned by just how many different PRS guitars I'm trying to justify buying...

Heh =)
I agree... I couldn't afford an USA model... I'll probably have to sell my Tremonti SE to buy the 3-Mike-7, but it's a must-have for me =/

I am digging the color of the 7 string a bit more over the Tobacco Sunburst of the CU24 I am getting soon.

Me likey.

I think I could suck just as good on 7 strings as six.... Hell, I suck plenty on my 12 string!

Me, too Corey - as soon as I saw that Vintage Burst I was wondering why the heck they didn't offer that color on the 6 stringer.

Like rugerpc, I am challenged enough on 6 strings to not want 7, but if they came out with a VB 6-er with that bridge, I would whip out the credit card...AGAIN...

Yeah, that is nice.
I think if I buy another SE though after I get the Custom 24, it is going to be one like I just got my son.
I could not put it down over the long weekend we just had.
I think the 25" scale made a big difference over my Santanas shorter one.

I actually find the 7 string a little easier because it gives you that extra string to incorporate into chords and runs instead of trying to find a way to on other parts of the fretboard.

Any official word on when these would hit the streets in the UK?

Can I get a two-string?

I'm having too much trouble with 6.

This just went up on YouTube. A few PRS employees checking out the 7 String. You might recognize a few of them

It's cool that PRS is releasing a 7-string. So far only Ibanez has done the neck right, Schecters are just godawful comfortable - so is PRS 7-string necks feel as comfortable as Ibanez they should give them a run for their money. Though PRS could have put up a more versatile video than everyone chugging away on the two bottom strings. The tonal range of this monster should be displayed to blow everyone away like we all know PRS guitars can ;)

Unlikely i'll be in the market for a 7 string any time soon - need to get my head round the other 6 strings first - but they are looking stunning! More blue SE's!!!

Any chance of a limited edition Bernie in blue? I could justify buying another if it was that colour!!!

So 99% of PRS guitars get time in Pauls studio for a demo but the hugely anticipated 7 string gets shot in the hallway? IM OUTRAGED!


[I'm kidding - we appreciate the quick video to hold us over until this weekend <3]

No circumstance.

Just a fist in your face.

Are the SE HFS and VB exact same specs as the USA? Wonder how these larger pups will differ in sound.

I'm a little surprised that this isn't coming out as a Dave Weiner signature model. He has been playing some pretty sweet PRS seven strings for a while now (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5_xEpmXMkE), including on Mr. Vai's current The Story Of Light tour.

Hmm... the SE Weiner... that could be tough to market.

Nothing against him of course.

Nice! Maybe Daisy Rock would want that one? I was thinking more along the lines of an DW SE though. Thanks for the laugh!

Happiness is 24 frets, seven strings, and a tube of fast fret to play with...
