PRS SE Mark Holcomb Ltd Edition Electric Guitar in Holcomb Burst
Periphery & PRS
The band Periphery perform a powerful blend of highly technical lead melodies, complicated metal rhythms, and thick guitar soundscapes. Mark Halcomb achieves his sound with PRS guitars and custom Seymour Duncan Pickups designed for power and articulation.
The Custom 24 Base
The PRS SE Mark Halcomb takes the Custom 24 model as its basis and supercharges it with Seymour Duncan pickups and fast playing specifications. The mahogany body and maple top remain familiar to the Custom 24 line, with the same bevelled contours and easy high-fret access courtesy of a low-profile neck joint and bevelled lower-horn. This versatile guitar platform features 24 frets and 3-way pickup switching with coil-tapping capabilities.
The Mark Halcomb signature model uses a particularly flat 20'' fingerboard radius with a thin profile for an incredibly fast feel. It includes jumbo frets on a smooth ebony fingerboard for a smooth left hand feel when playing solos. The guitar comes factory tuned to Drop C and is ready-made for low-end riffing with high-octane solo work. The satin finished neck further adds to the smooth playing feel and means that this guitar will not hold back your technique in any way.
Seymour Duncan Pickups
The Seymour Duncan "Alpha" and "Omega" pickups were created to meet the requirements of Periphery's technically complex music with precise tones. Their music requires pickups with just the right amount of output and articulation whether standing alone or working in a dense mix. The Omega bridge pickup features destructive percussion and growl in the mids and low end. It’s aggressive but it also has lots of clarity and brightness. The Alpha neck pickup is unlike most traditional neck models. It was voiced to combine the best qualities of a neck and a bridge pickup, with some of that fat glassy sound but also plenty of your pick attack and fretting-hand phrasing. These pickups ensure absolute clarity of tone and are ideal for low-tuned technical metal music.
PRS Build Quality
Anyone who has heard Paul Reed Smith talk about guitars knows that he is fastidious in his research and development and his continual drive to improve his guitar designs. The PRS SE Mark Holcomb Signature model is a true reflection of that, and the SE range has continued to evolve beyond it's initial design brief of being a "Student Edition" instrument. Pro-level machine-heads and bridges along with solid tonewoods and premium construction methods help to deliver accurate tuning and intonation with a fantastic playing experience. This is a true professional performer that can span the metal and rock genres, delivering stunning tones and playability night after night.
