PRS Comparison Considerations
PRS offers a variety of body styles, including their signature double-cutaway design, single-cutaway models, and more modern shapes like the PRS Starla.
PRS guitars are typically made from high-quality mahogany, maple, and rosewood. Different woods can affect the guitar's tone and resonance, so keep this in mind when comparing.
PRS guitars come with a range of pickup options, including humbuckers, single-coils, and P-90s. Many of these pickups are made in-house, though some models come with humbuckers from third party pickup builders like Seymour Duncan. Pickups have a lot to say about an electric guitar's sound, so take note of this when comparing.
Look at the quality of the hardware on the guitar, including the tuning machines, bridge, and controls. High-quality hardware can improve the guitar's performance and tuning stability.
The neck profile can affect how comfortable the guitar is to play. PRS offers different neck shapes, including their wide-thin and pattern necks. Generally, PRS electrics known for their necks being a little wider (the wide-thin design), but also more comfortable to play.
Consider the fretboard material and design, as this can affect playability and tone. PRS guitars typically have either rosewood or ebony fretboards.
PRS guitars are known for their finishes and exceptional body carving. They offer a wide range of colors, designs, and carving styles, which are important to consider when comparing. Note that most of the SE models (the cheaper ones) do not have the same exquisite body carving as the more expensive core models.
PRS guitars can vary widely in price depending on the model and features, though the Core models are known to be very expensive. The SE series, S2, and CE models are generally cheaper. Consider your budget and what features are most important to you, that way you'll know what you're paying for.
