Body & Neck
PRS’ SE Mark Holcomb SVN sports a Mahogany body, delivering a warm sound with plenty of harmonic richness in the mid-range. Boasting a slightly arched top, a belly cut and a deep lower cutaway; the PRS Holcomb signature model offers a comfortable feel that allows you to play without hindrance in either sitting or standing positions.
Joining the body is a bright-sounding Maple neck carved to PRS’ contemporary “Wide Thin” profile. While the material adds plenty of top-end snap to give notes more immediacy, the unique neck carve provides an incredibly modern feel, especially in conjunction with the large frets and flat fingerboard radius. Holcomb’s standard 6-string model features a 25.5″ scale length, but this 7-string version has a longer 26.5″ scale to increase tension for the lowest string; keeping it sounding tight and well-intonated.
Hardware & Electronics
Although Mark Holcomb’s signature guitar may be a part of a the affordable SE line, PRS spared no expense when it came to the instrument’s hardware and electronics. The PRS Plate Style bridge keeps things solid, with its beautifully-machined design offering a comfy feel that keeps your right-hand comfortable when playing intense palm-muted riffs. At the other end of the guitar you’ll find a set of PRS-designed tuners that’ll keep your tuning super-stable too.
The PRS SE Mark Holcomb is equipped with a set of Mark’s signature Seymour Duncan Alpha/Omega pickups. Emitting plenty of output, these immensely powerful humbuckers can cope with thick doses of high-gain yet remain focused and clear, even on the 7th string. However, they’re not one-trick ponies! Via the push-pull tone control, you can split the humbuckers to attain glassy single-coil sounds that are perfect for ambient cleans.
