PRS SE Mikael Åkerfeldt: First look
The guitar
Clearly, this guitar is the kind of classy broad that needs wining and fine-dining. Or at least a good polish and a decent case.

PRS takes the SE series into prog territory with the Opeth frontman's signature guitar - the PRS SE Mikael Åkerfeldt ... and TG's review model has just landed in the office!

Here's what Mike has to say of his new SE model:"I'm a writer, a rhythm, lead and acoustic player. I try to be as versatile as possible, that's why I needed a guitar that can match those ambitions both live and in the studio. On top of things, it's proper eye candy too!"

The wood
Eye candy, indeed. Its mahogany body follows the familiar PRS Singlecut shape and is capped with a flame maple veneer. To quote Nigel Tufnel: "Look at the flame on that one!"

Opeth logo
There's no mistaking who this guitar belongs to. But they put his name on the headstock too, just in case.

Hardware
The gold hardware adds to the bling status. Are we sure Opeth don't play hip-hop?

The pickups
PRS SE HFS and Vintage Bass humbuckers should provide you with all the progressive tone you need. Control wise, there's a master volume, master tone and three-way pickup switch.
