Based on the SE Mark Tremonti, designed and built to Mark’s specifications, the SE Tremonti Custom trades a mahogany body and neck for a figured maple top and maple neck, providing a new aesthetic and feel for this popular model. The addition of trem-up-rout to the PRS designed tremolo bridge (previously only available on the Core Tremonti model) is also a welcome addition. The Tremonti Custom continues to feature two humbuckers, each with their own volume and tone control, and a three-way pickup selector on the upper bout.

Through his solo work and as the lead guitarist of Alter Bridge and Creed, Mark Tremonti has made a name for himself as a heavy rock player with melodic strength. The SE Tremonti Custom, like the SE Mark Tremonti before it, provides a quality, powerful single-cutaway guitar for guitarists ready to rock."

Can we get clarification on the specs here? I've seen everything from "maple neck and body" to "mahogany body and maple neck" to "maple capped mahogany with maple neck." It'd be nice to know the 100% correct specs. ;)

Love this guitar though.

Thanks James! Those were the original specs I read, but everyone from review sites to the official PRS page seemed to give a different variant. I love this guitar though, gonna throw some locking tuners and Tremonti US pickups in her to really make her sing! Just waiting on some new pots...

Sweetwater still have misinformation up on the new guitar.
They say V12 finish, that is false.
It is polyurethane, just like all the other SEs.

My local dealer has some in stock too if anyone is around my area.
I think they ship also.

I do not see the Tremonti uncovered pups listed on PRS's site.
If I had a set installed in my new SE Tremonti Custom, is it going to make that much of a better tone over the stock 245 SE pickups in it now?

I haven't played an SE but the USA one I tried a couple of years ago blew me away, if you can afford it get them.

I'm assuming the up route allows the trem to pull notes sharp. Is there also more range to go flat? I love the PRS trem but would like a bit more range.

Corey, I would say that the US Tremonti bridge pup is much hotter and the neck pup is warmer than the stock SE 245 pickups, respectively. I have a HFS ready to be installed in the bridge of mine as I already have two guitars with US Tremonti pickups.
