PRS Guitars introduced the SE Series in 2001 in an effort to bring high-quality, high-value guitars to the market. Popular with professional, casual, and beginning players alike, the SE Series has grown considerably since its introduction both in the style of models offered and in the detailed quality of the instruments. The evolution continues with all maple top models in the SE lineup getting a new look, sound, and feel for 2017.
Throughout the 2017 Core Series, PRS Guitars has made several subtle specification changes, including the PRS Patented Gen III Tremolo, a new value-add for the company’s 10-Top models, and a piezo model shake up.
PRS Guitars introduced the S2 Series in the summer of 2013. All S2 instruments are made at PRS’s Maryland, USA factory and look and feel great right out of the box or with the scars and bruises of a cross-country tour.
As part of their 2017 Core Series announcements, PRS Guitars has revamped its longest-running artist signature model: the Santana. The 2017 Santana model is being reintroduced as the Santana Retro, a model previously only available through the Private Stock program.
With endorsements from artists like John Mayer, John Wesley Dearth, and Jimmy Herring, the McCarty 594 saw a great reception in 2016. For 2017, PRS has introduced a single-cutaway version of the 594 as both the November Private Stock Guitar of the Month and a new Core model.
Buying a PRS is a special memory. Chances are you spent months gazing at it in a product catalog, on a website or on the wall at your local guitar store.
Either way, it's hard to forget the moment you finally take it home with you.
