We love Black Stone Cherry at PRS. And Chris from Black Stone Cherry loves PRS. Earlier this year PRS Guitars Europe announced a Limited Run of an SE signature model for the Black Stone Cherry frontman.
The response for the SE was so fantastic that PRS Europe are thrilled to announce a second run of his guitar but in a new unique finish, “Kentucky Blueburst”.
The Black Stone Cherry frontman commented – “I was torn between blue and red for my guitar. Now I have my absolute favorite color on my signature guitar! Ain’t she a beauty!!”
Like the first one, The Singlecut-style SE has a mahogany body and neck, bevelled maple top with flame veneer. The 24.5” scale length, 22-fret neck sports PRS’s Wide Fat profile for a great vintage feel – and the onboard electrics also reflect Chris’s obsession with old-school tone.
A US PRS 57/08 humbucker in the bridge position is partnered with an SE Soapbar pickup at the neck – harnessed to a simple three-position toggle switch and volume/tone for each pickup – to allow access to a wide range of distinctive and characterful rock’n’roll voices. And the guitar’s stripped-for-action vibe is reflected in the rock-solid but highly adjustable PRS stoptail bridge.
