PRS press release

Headline Music Ltd has revealed a new, UK-exclusive version of the PRS SE Bernie Marsden signature model, featuring exciting upgrades to one of PRS's best-loved SE models.

The SE Bernie Marsden 53/10 Ltd – of which only 50 models will be produced – sees a pair of stunning PRS 53/10 humbuckers installed in the single cutaway guitar, teamed with a push/pull tone control. The pickup upgrade and coiltap significantly enhance what has already been hailed as a truly great, vintage-toned guitar.

The 53/10s and new tone control complement the SE Bernie Marsden's exemplary spec which includes thick mahogany body, carved maple/flamed maple veneer top, Wide Fat mahogany neck, 24.5" scale length and PRS stoptail bridge.

Headline Music's Gavin Mortimer says of the new UK-only model, "The standard SE Bernie Marsden's vintage styling and tone makes it the perfect platform for the gorgeous 53/10 humbuckers. The pickups and the push/pull switch give access to some incredibly creamy vintage rock tones and single-coil tones with real clarity – it makes the guitar fantastically versatile. We're really excited about being able to offer this exclusive short run to our UK customers – the original Bernie SE is an amazing guitar, and with these special features it really flies."

The PRS SE Bernie Marsden 53/10 Ltd carries a recommended retail price of £949, including PRS SE gig-bag. Every guitar will receive a full in-house set-up by PRS-trained techs and is supplied with a signed, numbered certificate of authenticity.
