This is a really great guitar. I am over 60 and have had many. I play our a couple of times a year and write my own stuff. My other guitar is a Montana made Gibson Hummingbird, which is the best. I picked the PRS for it's near match in neck and acoustic quality to the voice when you want it. It also howls thru a Boss Super Overdrive SD-1. Can't loose with these.

Product Description:
The SE Custom Semi-Hollow has the same basic appointments as the SE Custom--mahogany back, maple top, 22-fret wide-fat mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard and SE humbucking pickups. The addition of a hollow chamber and modern f-hole give it a musical midrange and internal reverb making this a very light, comfortable and versatile guitar.

A wide range of tonal possibilities. Click to enlarge.

The SE Custom Semi-Hollow

The First SE Semi-Hollow
The SE Custom Semi-Hollow is PRS' very first semi-hollow SE model guitar. All of the same features of the SE Custom are now available in a light-weight semi-hollow package featuring a unique pallet of colors.
HFS Pickups
Originally meaning Hot, Fat and Screams, the HFS features a powerful ceramic magnet and hot coils for an aggressive tone when cranked, clear highs, searing midrange and thumping bass.
The SE Custom semi-hollow produces a wide range of tonal possibilities enhanced by a variety of switching options including master volume, master tone, and 3-way toggle pickup selector.
Wide Fat Neck
The Wide Fat neck has the same nut width as the Wide Thin neck but has a big comfortable profile, similar to PRS's Regular neck. Because of its strength and longer "heel," the Wide Fat neck produces warm tones with lots of sustain.
PRS Stoptail Bridge
Designed to take full advantage of the resonant properties of their guitars, PRS's Stoptail Bridge provides direct transmission of string vibration to the guitar body and makes set-up a breeze. First used in 1991 on the PRS Dragon I guitar, it now appears on almost half of all PRS guitars sold. This bridge features slots that recess the strings comfortably as they pass over the top, in a gentle curve. Although it is pre-compensated for modern string gauges, fine-tuning is possible by adjusting the set screws at each end of the bridge.
SE Custom Semi-Hollow Available Colors
The SE Custom Semi-Hollow is available in Black, Natural, and Tobacco Sunburst finishes
PRS finishes their instruments with a polyester basecoat and acrylic urethane topcoat. Acrylic urethane looks and feels the closest to the old nitro-cellulose finishes but without the finish checking.
