PRS SE Tremonti - Vintage Sunburst

« back

The SE Tremonti Custom 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 newly designed SE Tremonti pickups in this model are paired with dual volume and tone controls, offering the articulate aggression needed to cover Tremonti’s tonal demands. Additional appointments include a maple top and veneer, Wide Thin maple neck, and a trem-up-route, making the SE Tremonti Custom fast to play and hard to put down.

It's an all-round bigger depthed and weightier piece, but that's the point - certainly for artists like Mark Tremonti. Its single-cut with vibrato mix remains pretty unique (there's no Stoptail option here, unlike the USA model), and like the other models here, we get a pickup change from those 245 humbuckers of the previous model to the SE Tremonti pair fitted here: you got it, Korean-made versions of Mark T's USA-made signature pickups.

The toggle-switch is Les Paul-style on the upper shoulder, although the four-control layout is different to the classic Gibson drive: the two controls closest to the bridge are the pickup volumes (the neck pickup volume is the highest); the outer two controls are the tones. Like the recently-released Santana, there are no coil-splits, but, again, the humbuckers are four-conductor if you want to get out that soldering iron.

With more low-end, the Tremonti really can sound huge and the bridge pickup is well voiced to send the mildest of amps into overdrive. But it has a duality that lies in its much more vintage-y neck humbucker: with a little shimmer from the vibrato, it can sound extremely retro and less rock. Yes, our sample was a little overweight, but with such a strong voice, that perceived 'minus' actually seems to add to the powerful delivery.
