The PRS SE Mark Tremonti Custom solidbody electric guitar offers you a great-playing, performance-driven instrument at a wonderful price. This new Tremonti adds a handful of tweaks and upgrades to bridge the gap between the SE line and Mark's core PRS model. Changes to the body and neck dimensions deliver a fatter sound and fast playability, and the updated electronics are based on some of PRS's most popular designs. The headstock has been redesigned to now sport Paul Reed Smith's signature, adding extra "cool" factor. And a figured maple veneer adds a high-class look to these guitars. The PRS SE Mark Tremonti Custom is exceptionally close to Mark's USA model at a fraction of the price.
The SE Mark Tremonti models have always been popular with players, especially here at Music Experience. But the SE Tremonti Customs have additions like a thicker mahogany body with maple top to bring the guitars more in line with the USA models found slung around Mark's shoulders. A PRS tremolo is routed for trem-up performance to get the most control. And the neck now boasts PRS's popular wide-thin neck profile for comfort and speed.
Onboard the SE Tremonti Custom is a duet of newly designed PRS SE Tremonti humbucking pickups. An upgrade from the pickups on the originals, the SE Tremontis were carefully designed with Mark to deliver a clear and present tone that stays full and distinct with hard-driven gain. The maple top and neck also have a huge impact on the tone of the guitar. You'll find notes are more distinct, with a stronger fundamental and noticeably more sustain. And the thicker mahogany body adds a fullness in the mids and lows. This setup makes the guitar work great in any style of music.
With one look you know that this SE Tremonti Custom is a high-quality performance guitar boasting a beautiful figured maple veneer. Whether quilt or flame, the figure will be highlighted by the translucent finishes, much like the USA versions. Masked wood binding lets the maple top outline the body of the guitar. And of course the signature Paul Reed Smith birds-in-flight inlay adorns the 22-fret rosewood fretboard for that unmistakable PRS look.
The SE Mark Tremonti provides a powerful voice and classic PRS aesthetic for players ready to rock. Through his solo work and as the lead guitarist of Alter Bridge and Creed, Tremonti has made a name for himself as a heavy rock player with melodic strength. The Tremonti "S" pickups are paired with dual volume and tone controls, offering the articulate aggression needed to cover Tremonti’s tonal demands. Additional appointments include a beveled maple top with flame maple veneer, Wide Thin maple neck, and a trem-up route, making the SE Mark Tremonti fast to play and hard to put down.
