For sale is a PRS SE semi-hollow guitar with stock tuners, crescent moon fretboard inlays, and a Blue Matteo finish (although it looks more green than blue to my eye). Upgrades include a custom-carved bone nut, Seymour-Duncan "Pearly Gates" (PG1) pickups in the neck and bridge positions (I defy you to find a guitar model these sound better in), Seymour-Duncan Triple Shot switches on both pickups (allowing series/parallel, reverse polarity, and single coil pickup settings), and a Schroeder Original Stoptail bridge (which allows for proper intonation). Together, the guitar and the upgrade components total a value of around $1000. The guitar has been polished, and I have installed a fresh set of SIT strings purchased direct from the factory here in Akron, Ohio. There is a bit of rust around the pickup selector switch and on the adjustable screws on the bridge pickup, but it does not affect the sound or functionality of those components (and it could probably be cleaned off).I have a replica of this guitar in a different color that I originally bought as a backup when my band was touring, but the backup became the main instrument, and, anyway, I'm no longer touring, so I'm ready to let this one go. The technician who installed all the upgrades was very excited about the sound and playability of this guitar, and I love it for its versatility too—it can sound like a hotrodded Les Paul, a soulful Strat, and everything in between. It would be a great jazz guitar and it'll mimic a Trey Anastasio-type sound amazingly, but it can also get great shreddy sounds, and the PG1s really dial in a hard rock sound if that's what you're looking for. Truly, through any rig this guitar sounds amazing.
