PRS has never been shy of a bit of metal, so the SE Torero isn't exactly a makeover. But make no mistake: the world's most sophisticated luthier has never thrown the horns quite so overtly before, ditching vast swathes of its signature spec to create a beast that plays faster and harder. Paul Reed Smith himself is calling this guitar a "shredder's dream"!
The Torero is still recognisably a PRS, echoing the contours of the Custom and fusing a maple top to mahogany body. Gone is the standard neck joint, replaced by a maple thru with 25½-inch scale (most PRSs are 25-inch) and the double-octave of a Custom 24. The vibrato is a genuine Floyd Rose, and the pickups are active EMG 81/85s and the wide neck is a killer platform for machine-gun bursts of notes played very fast. This is a guitar that polarises its audience, it's a simple equation: mahogany, plus thru neck, plus high output pickups, equals the most jaw-breaking, sustain-packed, brick-wall tone that Paul Reed Smith has ever put his name to. The Torero has all PRS's calling cards - it's exceptionally well made and gorgeous to play. PRS has always rocked. Now it slays!
This is a pre-owned instrument in excellent condition! There are a couple of string-scratch marks on the headstock (see pictures) but this has been a very well looked after instrument.
