PRS Paul Reed Smith SE Kingfisher Bass

The Paul Reed Smith SE Kingfisher has modern signature sound that will grab your attention. Dual humbucking pickups give sparkling top end with a high midrange growl to give the Kingfisher a personality that will cut through the mix while holding down the band with its sweet warm fundamental tone.

Designed in PRS's Maryland shop, the Kingfisher's offset Swamp Ash body and neck-through construction provide sustain and evenly balanced tone. The 24-fret maple/walnut neck allows unlimited possibilities for your creativity and sonic palette, and the 34" scale length makes this an instantly comfortable bass for players old and new.

Kingfisher (4B 'H') pickups are deep, thick-sounding humbuckers with plenty of top end clarity and punch. These modern pickups have a distinct old-school tonal character that delivers that huge "clacky" tone missing from some modern basses.
