The PRS SE Fredrik Åkesson Opeth Electric Guitar delivers shredder approved style and tone at a working musician’s price. Order yours from Sam Ash Direct today for the guaranteed lowest price.
Fredrik Åkesson – guitarist and backing vocalist for the landmark prog metal band Opeth is a veteran of the metal scene. He has been the driving force behind the bands Talisman, Krux, and Arch Enemy. Åkesson has been described as “an old-school shredder.” Paul Reed Smith now offers his Signature model so you can tap into Fredrik’s sound.
The body of the SE Fredrik Åkesson features a thick veneer of quilted maple on top of a mahogany body and is outfitted with a pair of PRS SE-245 Humbuckers that will deliver sustain for days on end as well as absolutely timeless tone. You can shape your sound with volume and tone controls for each pickup, and a 3-way toggle pickup selector. To keep with the artists specs, the controls are ‘inverted’ to allow easier access to the treble controls.
The SE 245 is perfect for traditional single-cutaway players. The distinctive feature of this guitar is its 24.5" scale length. Most traditional single-cutaway guitars have a 24.75” scale. Though seemingly a minor detail, the .25” difference in scale length makes a huge difference in the overall playability. Players will love the ease of string-bending and effortless shredding on the SE Fredrik Åkesson because of the lesser amount of tension created by the 24.5” scale length. The neck is carved from mahogany into a luxurious “wide fat” profile with an ebony fingerboard and the familiar PRS bird inlays as standard appointments. Finally, a Deluxe PRS Gig Bag is included.
