The SE Paul's Guitar delivers a lot of "PRS," starting with tone and versatility. The TCI "S" treble and bass pickups deliver a very pure, vintage sound. The SE Paul's Guitar also features two mini-toggle switches between the volume and tone knobs. This setup allows players to put either or both pickups in true single coil mode, which delivers the clarity and uniqueness of vintage single-coil tones in both single coil and humbucking positions. This is the first model to offer this style of electronics outside of the Private Stock and Core lines.

"The Paul's Guitar, like the Modern Eagle before it, has always been about Paul's latest discoveries in guitar making. To bring this guitar into the SE Series, we knew the tone, functionality, and playability had to be right and had to be consistent," said Jack Higginbotham, COO, PRS Guitars. "We feel this guitar offers a lot of value to players."

The SE Paul's Guitar is available in three colours, reminiscent of PRS's earliest guitar offerings: Amber, Aqua, and Fire Red.

After seeing many reviews I decided to order the guitar. Looks whise, I was a bit concerned that it would be a bit too red. It is not. It is a very nice wooden red and the veneer is really nice. The birds on the fretboard are really nice too. Finishing is great. Quality is excellent all around. The only thing that seems less good than the rest is the plastic tips of the tuners. Tuning is excellent but the plastic just looks cheap. But that is an easy replacement. I first played the guitar unplugged. This way you can see the fundamental tone and mainly the sustain. Wow. The guitars sustain is amazing. This is my first guitar without a bolted neck and maybe that is the difference. Plugged, the sounds are great. Played on a bassbreaker 15. Great humbucker tones but more clear definition than other HBs I have. And split coil spunds are amazing. Great versatility and great tones. I was surprised. I was expecting a pretty good guitar but this is a better guitar than my Stratocaster American Elite. The PRS won't replace it as they are different even in the single coil sounds. Definitely keeping this one. Highly recommend this guitar.
