Periphery have taken the metal world by storm over the last few years, from relative obscurity through to some of the biggest stages in the world, these guys are at the top of the game. As the more lead focussed player in Periphery's trio of down tuned mega riffers, Mark Holcomb needs a guitar that can do it all, the PRS SE Mark Holcomb does just that! This limited edition Whale Blue Satin model is limited to just 100 pieces and is a real powerhouse.
Taking the original core line Holcomb signature and refining it for a wider audience, the SE is now Mark Holcomb's chosen weapon of choice when hitting the stage. With a bevelled Maple top with quilted Maple veneer, this guitar looks killer, the black hardware really helping to set the tone.
With a slightly longer 25.5" scale length, you get a tighter string tension for the 10-52 Drop C tuned strings. The flattened 20" radius on the Maple/Ebony neck feels great with the satin finish; it's precise, aggressive and fast.
To cope with the demands of his highly percussive and melodic style, he needs a pickup combo that can capture all the tone nuances and attack of his playing. The Custom designed Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega pickups have great note definition and response, perfect for speed playing and staccato.
It's a monster of a guitar, much more than just another signature. Mark Holcomb is an incredible player and this SE is certainly worthy of bearing his name!
