The PRS SE Swamp Ash Special is a unique offering in the growing PRS SE Series. With a swamp ash body and 22-fret maple neck with maple fretboard, the SE Swamp Ash Special is a fresh face and versatile voice. The 85/15 "S" pickups flank a PRS-Designed AS-01 Single Coil "S" pickup in the middle position. The AS-01 Single Coil features both alnico and steel (hence the name), which adds mass to the pickups helping to create a powerful sound. Paired with a push-pull tone control and 3-way pickup switch, this pickup/electronics package gives players an array of sounds to enjoy, and the addition of PRS's patented tremolo adds a touch more versatility. The overall tone of the PRS SE Swamp Ash Special offers tight low end, bright but mellow high-end, and a welcome twangy tone that can reach "hot country," blues, and even jazz territory.

This is the second guitar I bought from zounds and the first one was an Epiphone modern figured SG and it’s a wonderful guitar too. But this PRS is on a whole different level. The neck is amazing the most comfortable neck I’ve played. Yeah I have pretty small hands and set up is pretty decent as well. I bought mine blemished and you can’t tell that it wasn’t new. so don’t let a blemished product worry you zZounds won’t sell you anything that is beat up.
