PRS welcomes frontman Mike Åkerfeldt of Opeth to the PRS family with this signature model SE in an exclusive new color. One of the first SE models to include old-school bird inlays, the Åkerfeldt signature model SE is both handsome and versatile. The 24 jumbo frets, PRS-designed tremolo bridge, SE HFS and SE Vintage Bass pickups, volume and tone control with a 3-way toggle switch all add to this guitar’s unique voice, while the Opeth “O” on the body, tortoise shell finish, and gold hardware give this model a unique look. Case Sold Separately.
Here's what Mikael says about his signature guitar:
"It will be single cutaway mahogany body with a flamed maple top. The neck will be of the wide-fat type and made of 3-piece maple that also goes around to the front of the headstock. Sweet! Ebony fretboard and 24 jumbo frets with extra large side dots for the 5th and 12th fret (I have fluorescent tape on my other guitars so I can sing and still see where I'm at while playing, this will look better!)."
"There will be the old-style PRS bird inlays on the fretboard. One HFS and one Vintage bass pickup thrown in with a 3-way toggle switch. PRS-style tremolo and all the hardware all will be gold (Bling! Well... It's fool's gold or something, but whatever...). The main finish is called 'tortoise shell'. The whole guitar will be high-glossed up apart from the back of the neck which I've requested to be satin matt, which is so much better for me at least."
"There will be a nice little Opeth "O" logo under the bridge as well. I think I might spend the LA nights with it... yes.. kinky! I think it looks stunning, oh yes I do!"
