PRS SE One Guitar, Tobacco Sunburst
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
This is a Korean-made PRS copy of a Les Paul, Jr.It sounds and plays better and is 1/3 the price.There's a single P-90 style pickup and no tone knob, so obviously not the kind of thing you're going to get a large variety of sounds from.I've heard that the pickup and its hole are smaller than regular Gibson P-90s, which would be a problem if you wanted to swap it out.The pickup's a bit trebly to me, but since half my gear has equalizers on it this is not a problem.The tuners could be a bit stronger -- too easy to bend the G out.Neck is wide and fat, which makes for a unique and excellent playing experience.Overall, I'd give this 4 stars, but at the price you can get one for, easily a 5.

The SE One

Keep It Simple
The SE One's high-output, single-coil soapbar pickup is all you need for crisp, snappy sound. Back it off with the volume control. Plug in and play--what else is there?
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.
Available Colors
The SE One is available in Antique White 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.
