PRS SE Singlecut Chris Robertson Sig Model

I've just taken delivery of said instrument - and I'm a very happy bunny (steady on there Wonks, I'm not that kind of bunny).

Now 5 out of 6 of my other electrics have trems but I recently acquired a Tele and I've begun to wean myself off the need to 'waggle' at every opportunity. I've also had a 'problem' with LP's shapes in the past. I want to like them but we just don't seem to get along, however, I'm determined to overcome this shortcoming in my playing.

I've always liked PRS instruments (this one will be my 5th) ranging from SE's to Core with an S2 in between. What attracted me to this particular single cut is that, unlike almost all of the other SE's, it has a fully adjustable bridge. Now I'm not particularly fussy about tuning / intonation but it's nice to know that I could adjust it if I really wanted to (it the same way that my car has airbags even though I've never needed to call upon them). I find that I can sleep more easily through drum solos knowing that the option is there.

Anyway, back to the guitar. Neck is really nice (PRS Fat Wide), frets are well finished, it looks great, there's a bit of beer gut relief and the sounds are very usable. It's quite dark compared with my PRS Core but in a good way.

I had never heard of Chris Robertson before looking at this guitar but, given the way these instruments are selling, his biggest claim to fame may turn out to be his signature model.

I think that I’m starting to get the ‘LP / singlecut’ thing. Tuning stability was a bit of an issue at first. The factory fit strings clearly hadn’t been stretched but, with a new set of 10’s fitted, it’s behaving itself nicely. I’m playing tuned down a semitone with this band so need the 10’s so that the instrument offers some resistance.

Right now I’m going through the set seeing which songs to do on the singlecut and which on Strat.

Very happy :thumbup:
