Product Review: PRS SE SVN 7-String Electric Guitar


As seen in Guitar Girl Magazine Issue 9 – Autumn 2019 – Ladies of Metal

Just like a PRS, the PRS SE SVN 7-string is smooth to the core — quality-built and providing a rich tone with a buttery-like finish in sound.

I got the chance to test this bad boy out recently when my band headlined the Seattle Pride Festival and all I can say is WOW. This guitar is true to its nature. Initially, I was concerned about the tuning of the 7-string staying in place. I am a 6-string type of gal who has had her fair share of tone issues with many guitars. Of course, you swap out pickups or even find a new set of strings to toss on your guitar, but wouldn’t it be nice to have a guitar with a perfect tone and a dash of edge?

The SE SVN has a perfect balance of style and that “dash of edge” with its mahogany back and a flame maple veneer top. The beveled edges add to its comfort, making it easy to play. I had no problems with tuning due to the String-Through Plate Style 7 String Bridge.

As a rock guitarist, I often find myself looking for a guitar tone with decent bottom to carry the depth of rhythm chords that I need. This PRS gave me the depth I was looking for, and then some. If you are a rock guitarist, or any type guitarist out there looking for a dope guitar with a classic touch, this PRS 7-string may do the job for you as it did for me.
