For the UK onlyl! PRS unleash the upgraded new PRS Limited Edition Bernie Marsden SE - limited to 50 guitars
PRS release a new-improved UK-only version of the PRS SE Bernie Marsden signature model, upgraded one of PRS’s best-loved SE models.
The single cutaway SE Bernie Marsden 53/10 Ltd is enhanced with an upgraded pair of PRS 53/10 humbuckers, working with a push/pull tone control making it ideal for warm vintage tones.
The guitar is designed to the SE Bernie Marsden’s specifications and features a thick mahogany body, carved maple/flamed maple veneer top, Wide Fat mahogany neck, 24.5” scale length and PRS stoptail bridge.
Headline Music’s Gavin Mortimer says of the new UK-only model, “The standard SE Bernie Marsden’s vintage styling and tone makes it the perfect platform for the gorgeous 53/10 humbuckers. The pickups and the push/pull switch give access to some incredibly creamy vintage rock tones and single-coil tones with real clarity – it makes the guitar fantastically versatile. We’re really excited about being able to offer this exclusive short run to our UK customers – the original Bernie SE is an amazing guitar, and with these special features it really flies.”
The PRS SE Bernie Marsden 53/10 Ltd carries an affordable RRP of £949, including PRS SE gig-bag.
Every guitar will receive a full in-house set-up by PRS-trained techs and is supplied with a signed, numbered certificate of authenticity.
