Paul Reed Smith SE Custom 247 Tobacco Sunburst 2013
PRS SE Custom 247, sunburst, made in Korea 2013. The Custom 24 is Paul's most iconic guitar design; it's a comfortable shape and balanced both physically and tonally. The 7-string version is a pretty intuitive extension; it's still easy to play, still well balanced and still looks pretty slick to boot. The tobacco burst finish is classy; it's kinda nice to have a seven string guitar that's not pointy and black. The pickups have enough output to get an amp heaving, but they're not the EMG-style death machines you often find on extended range guitars like this; they breathe nicely and will work happily across a few genres. This one lives in a pretty slick PRS case, the same kind you'd get on a fancy USA model; handy bonus!
