Could be better

Edoyle, 04.11.2017
There were problems with the finish despite it having passed QC on the included checklist. I contacted Thomann CC and they requested photos for their experts to review - and after some administrative delay they agreed to replace the guitar. I have experienced this kind of delay before with the CC when I had a previous problem purchase. Their e-mail communication is very slow and so unfortunately sometimes you have to incur international phone charges to get someone on the phone to help you faster.

Otherwise, the PRS SE guitar is a nice instrument and you can tell that (almost) a lot of care has gone into its manufacture.

The 3-spring tremolo is impressive and there is a spare spring included along with the accessories should you move up a gauge. The SE comes strung with 9's although I'm not sure looking at the nut if 10's would not have some binding?

I am surprised that the SE does not have locking tuners at this price point as this would have helped somewhat with tuning stability. It's OK overall, although the G string seemed to slip a little on larger bends while the others did not.

The pickups are quite hot and have a very heavy bass response so you may need to tame them a little first. I'm not convinced by the matt black finish on the back of the neck - I would have much preferred a complete maple neck rather than just the fretboard. There is a gloss paint applied to the heel of the neck which was uneven on mine and did not match the quality of the finish elsewhere. It could have easily been skipped IMO.

The tone knob is VERY loose compared with the volume knob as some others have commented on-line. It works OK otherwise.

UPDATE: I got two more of these guitars which also went back. The first had a sticker to say it was checked by Thomann "Quailty Control" but had obvious signs of use. The strings were dead and it had marks on the neck either from an impact or tooling in the factory.

The third one had very high action out of the box and a quick check of the frets revealed why - they were completely uneven. It would seem that the European set-up just jacked up the action to stop the buzzing rather than reject the guitar and send it for repair.

So overall I am amazed at the problems these instruments had given their reputation. I would advise anyone when considering an instrument at this price point to get your hands on it first rather than buying it on-line. Personally I will avoid PRS in the future.

Dreamlike!

DennyTheNight, 10.01.2018
Premise: I am not a professional, so I will go to evaluate the product from an amateur's point of view.

Appearance: the guitar is beautiful. Compared to the photos, where the coloring tends to emerald green, in reality it is more a sapphire blue, but I do not mind at all. As soon as I saw it, I decided it had to be mine and I do not regret the choice!

Sound: I can not evaluate the sound from an authoritative point of view (also because playing it at home with a few watt amplifier you lose a lot of sound quality), however I can say that it is undoubtedly the most beautiful and clearest sounding guitar never had.

Features: The guitar is undoubtedly very versatile and lends itself to a large number of different styles. The selection switch between the two pick-ups and the push-pull of the tone knob makes a great combination of different sounds possible. To underline also the presence of a bridge for the tremolo, which never hurts!

Conclusion: a real gem that is not only beautiful, but also beats strong. Of course it will be my main guitar and it will be some time before you can fully exploit it!
