PRS has announced a limited run of SE guitars in a Sandblasted Swamp Ash finish.

No two guitars in the run will look alike due to the unique finishing method, which involves sandblasting the swamp ash top then filling in the grooves of the grain to add colour. The method creates a dramatic contrast, deeply highlighting the characteristics of each piece of wood.

750 guitars in total will be manufactured in this finish, exclusive to Europe. They will feature the same general hardware specifications as other SE Ltd guitars, with a two-humbucker pickup combination, 24 frets and PRS’ signature bird fretboard inlays.

The guitars are available in 5 finishes: Sand-blasted Frozen Charcoal, Sand-blasted Fire Red, Sand-blasted Indigo, Sand-blasted Yellow and Sand-blasted Emerald.

Take a look at the different finish options below:
