PRS Guitars have just announced a signature model for one of the most legendary guitarists in the history of Metal, Marty Friedman. Marty has been using PRS Guitars for a long time now, I’m not sure exactly how long but it’s been at least a few years. Marty is obviously happy enough with PRS to develop a signature model with them, what I was surprised about was that it is only available as an SE model, no US made version? The good news is that this will therefore be an affordable signature model.
As I reported a couple of weeks ago Marty Friedman is releasing a new album in 2014 called ‘Inferno’ and The PRS Marty Friedman signature model was developed over the course of recording, “PRS has finally created my ultimate go-to guitar” says Friedman.
The PRS Marty Friedman features a beveled maple top with mahogany back, a 25” scale length wide fat 22 fret mahogany neck with a rosewood fretboard and star inlays, PRS-designed SE locking tuners and PRS’s adjustable stoptail bridge. SE humbucking treble and bass pickups with volume and tone for each pickup with a 3-way toggle switch on the upper bout gives players ultimate versatility and control.
