I've always felt that PRS SE guitars were pretty nicely made. But I recently acquired a PRS SE Custom 22 Semi-hollow body that has what is possibly the nicest neck and most exquisitely done fretwork I've seen. It comes from World Musical Instrument Co in S. Korea, before PRS built their new plant in Indonesia. I had a 15% off deal with Musicians Friend, I'm kind of on a semi-hollow guitar jag right now, and decided this would round out my stable of instruments very nicely. I've been kind of busy with some other guitar exchanges in the last few weeks and haven't given this one a lot of attention (other than adding some pickup covers - not a fan of zebra bobbins - and some black trim rings). But I've given it enough play time to be incredibly impressed with the neck, the fretwork, the flawless and beautiful finish, and the fantastic tones of these pickups when in split-coil mode! I've seen some fantastic instruments coming out of Asia lately, and I'm thrilled with that experience. We are most definitely living in the golden age of guitar production today! In recent months I've pretty much let go of any appreciation I've had previously with PAF-style humbucker pickup tone. I much prefer the tones from low-wind single-coils and Gretsch/TV Jones pickups. But the sound samples I had heard of these humbuckers -when in split coil mode- really caught my interest. PRS has found a way to split these 85/15 S pickups into single-coils and have them sounding strong, clear, and full bodied. They are not the least bit thin, nor wimpy sounding, but rather sound good enough to please a Telecaster nut, like me! I found the tones in split-coil mode to be magnificent - and this Tele lover enjoys them very much! PRS, in concert with WMIC, really do put out a stunningly nice quality guitar, for quite a reasonable price!
