“Creed? But I hate them!” Silence, idiot, for you’re missing out. Mr T’s signature has become a modern mid-price single-cut classic when it comes to providing tones for the heavier side of rock or the lighter side of metal.
That sleek ‘bevelled mahogany’ body looks and feels the business, and the Wide Fat neck profile combines with PRS’s usual 635mm (25-inch) scale-length (pitched directly between traditional Fender and Gibson scales) for the perfect mixture of speed, tension and tone.
Two humbuckers, two volumes and two tone controls means you’re as well stocked as ever with this type of guitar. We like the solid vibe of the original version (available in Black or Vintage Cherry), but if you’re after a little more luxury, take a look at Mark’s latest SE Custom model, which adds a flame-maple cap, SE-245 Humbuckers, a PRS vibrato and a thinner neck profile.
Don’t let the price tag fool you, either. We’ve seen these guitars used on stage by ‘proper’ bands in ‘proper’ venues. You’ll be hard-pushed to find a better single-cut for the money.
