A budget friendly guitar that loves to get dirty.

Periphery’s Mark Holcomb has partnered with PRS to produce a budget-friendly guitar that loves to get dirty. This is a beast whose natural habitat is deep in the drop tuning muck. The PRS SE Mark Holcomb has a high gain-friendly bellow that can summon your dark deity of choice 🤘.

Coming from the factory in Drop C tuning, the Mark Holcomb signature sports a 25 1/2in scale length, and heavy gauge strings to get all of that low end growl without sacrificing tuning or playability. Everything down to the custom electronics was made to cater to those wanting to live in the low end. This guitar is armed with Mark’s signature Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega humbuckers and a 3-way blade switch with coil tapping that is especially prevalent in a high-gain setting.

Drop tuning is something that may not be for everyone, but this guitar gives you that option in a well-made, fun to play, and competitively priced package that will serve you loyally.
