The SE Series of PRS guitars will continue to grow in 2024, adding three new models to the lineup: the SE Custom 24 Quilt, SE CE 24, and SE Swamp Ash Special.
PRS SE CUSTOM 24 QUILT
The PRS SE Custom 24 Quilt brings the original PRS to the more-accessible SE Series with the addition of a quilted maple top veneer and matching quilted maple headstock veneer. This model’s polished aesthetic gives the guitar stage-worthy style to go with its road-worthy reliability.
With a 24-fret, 25” scale length, Wide Thin maple neck, the SE Custom 24 Quilt is comfortable and addictive to play. The 85/15 “S” dual humbuckers and 3-way blade switch with push/pull coil split tone control offer versatility and full-spectrum tone. A fitting workhorse for touring musicians, professional players, and at home guitarists alike.
PRS SE CE 24
The PRS SE CE 24 pairs the traditional PRS Custom 24 combination of a maple top, mahogany back, and rosewood fretboard with a bolt-on maple neck. The added snap and response of bolt-on construction has been an essential part of guitar history from the beginning, and the CE’s voice and appointments carry that tradition forward with PRS’s unique spin on a classic. The 85/15 “S” pickups provide extended high and low end with clarity and balance, while the push/pull tone control adds the versatility of coil splits. The PRS SE CE 24 delivers tone, playability, and classic PRS looks that players of all styles can rock.
The PRS CE was originally introduced in 1988 and joins the SE Series for the first time for 2024.
PRS SE SWAMP ASH SPECIAL
The PRS SE Swamp Ash Special is a unique offering in the growing PRS SE Series. With a swamp ash body and 22-fret maple neck with maple fretboard, the SE Swamp Ash Special is a fresh face and versatile voice.
The 85/15 “S” pickups flank a PRS-Designed AS-01 Single Coil “S” pickup in the middle position. The AS-01 Single Coil features both alnico and steel (hence the name), which adds mass to the pickups helping to create a powerful sound. Paired with a push-pull tone control and 3-way pickup switch, this pickup/electronics package gives players an array of sounds to enjoy, and the addition of PRS’s patented tremolo adds a touch more versatility. The overall tone of the PRS SE Swamp Ash Special offers tight lowend, bright but mellow high-end, and a welcome twangy tone that can reach “hot country,” blues, and even jazz territory.
