We love this new PRS SE which has been released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of King Crimson! They have created a signature guitar for Crimson’s lead singer and guitarist, Jakko Jakszyk. Only around 1,000 of these SE Schizoid guitars, adorned with the classic artwork from Crimson’s In the Court of the Crimson King album, will be made.

PRS Guitars is a USA based guitar manufacturer founded by guitarist and luthier Paul Reed Smith in 1985, making high-end solid body electric guitars, although they have recently introduced a line of acoustic models together with a range of tube amplifiers.

They are now one of the leading electric guitar brands in the world with a reputation for producing high quality rock and metal guitars. Unfairly known for making ‘posh’ guitars they have recently introduced a line of guitars – the S2 Series – for the working musician.

To keep up with demand PRS introduced a new mid-priced line in the late 1990s. The Student Edition (SE) line is manufactured in Korea.
