    Play-through demo of the ┼kesson SE

    So, still waiting for the last two SE's for my mega-shootout video, so I recorded a quick play-through
    video of the Fredrik ┼kesson SE model. Real sleeper this guitar, fantastic for heavy rock, metal and just shred in general

    EDIT: Ended up talking quite a bit in this video, so I would ask you to go watch this on YouTube so you get the clickable time stamps for the parts in case you don't want to suffer my "Swenglish"

    Excellent Richard.
    As someone else said in the ZM video thread, you should be doing demos for PRS.
    Maybe even become a rep over there in Sweden to get the word out on PRS guitars there.

    Really looking forward to that shoot out video you will be making later.

    NICE!
    6:17 for Distortion, BTW!

    What amp are you using? It sounds pretty good!
    Not like the other kids...

    Now I really want one of these! Does anyone know how much thicker the body of the Akesson is compared to the 245?

    Thx! Had to re-upload it, something had gone wrong and had f the distorted part was missing
    Now it's complete.
    The signal chain is as follows: Guitar -> JVM Satriani head Crunch channel, red "AFD" mode. Everything set pretty much straight up.
    -> into Logic and cab IR's (a Mesa 4x12 with dual mics, Royer 121 and SM57).

    Hi! I ask you some information about this guitar:
    I understand, by internet searching, there is 2 version of this guitar: 1st with classic "SE" Knob and a 2nd, with "LP" like silver Knob, is correct?
    standard -> http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8313/7...7bf2736e_z.jpg
    silver -> http://images.guitarcenter.com/produ...ntida_brun.jpg

    Have both other kind of characteristics, like wood, scale length, pickups, tone (more bass or mids)?

    Thanks a lot!

    The pic from the GC website matches the PRS Product page pic. However, a brief Google search shows that there are a few Akessons out there, almost all at European/UK sites, that have the other knobs. The other possibility is that the pic you linked from Flickr is a modified guitar - someone put those other knobs on there due to personal preferences, perhaps. I am not aware of any changes to the production of the Akesson, so maybe the different knobs thing is a US vs. UK/Euro distributor thing.

    Great demo
    I have been wanting an ┼kesson for a while, love the understated look and he is a monster player in one of my favourite bands as a bonus!

    I had one for awhile. The couple that I tried and the one I picked all had brittle knobs...cracked and/or broken edges.
    I replaced mine with some cool old amp knobs.
    Very smooth, nice feeling guitar and I liked the design.
    However it got traded in - traded up.
    It's likely still available on gc used...


    btw- really enjoy your videos Richard....thank you!!



    yup...just checked....it's there waiting for a new home...
