Classic styling and a rare, lightweight korina body.
The PRS SE Singlecut Korina electric guitar features a gorgeous korina body and set korina neck. Korina, also known as limba, is an African wood known for its treasured tonal qualities that add mids to the usually more mellow mahogany sound. The result is a very lightweight guitar that is rich in tone. A 22-fret, wide-fat mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard adds to the rich tones of this PRS guitar. The treble and bass humbuckers were designed at Paul Reed Smith to give you a variety of great sounds for whatever style of music you play. The PRS SE Singlecut guitar is enhanced by a wraparound stop tailpiece/bridge for direct transfer of string vibration. Bird fretboard inlays and natural maple top binding add a little Paul Reed Smith flair to the SE Singlecut.

Comments about PRS SE Singlecut Korina Electric Guitar:
I bought this guitar to have something different from my Strat and D-activator equipped mahogany Ibanez. Non-tremolo and I also wanted a different scale size than my current guitars. I have tried the Epiphone LPs and they do not fit me at all. I tried out the PRS SE's. I played the Torero and Allender model but the bat inlays are not for me. For some strange reason, I do not like the feel of the ebony fretboard! I preferred rosewood. I played with the SE Singlecut the most, though it was the maple/mahogany one. It was better playing than the other SE's I tried, and much more comfortable than an LP for me.
I ordered the SE Korina Singlecut to have a unique instrument, and I was pleasantly surprised. The guitar came almost perfectly set-up; I only had to adjust the neck a little and change the string gauge (they ship with 9's: too thin and flabby for me). I like the round tone that I get, the pickups are good enough for my purposes; I already have a metal guitar, so I was looking for a vintage-medium output vibe with great sustain. I can get convincing classic rock sounds and cool Santana-esque tone out of it, just what I was looking for.
The neck is fat but comfortable, I have medium sized hands but I can still wrap my thumb over the fretboard. The back of the neck is finished and not matte, so it kind of slowed me down a bit.
Overall, a very good value. If you want a simple guitar with great tone, you can't go wrong with this!
