Play the Opeth Frontman's Prized Axe

Now, you can play the same solidbody that propels Opeth's punishing (yet dizzyingly diverse) songs! Pick up Paul Reed Smith's Mikael Akerfeldt SE Signature guitar and find out just how much you can get out of your own playing. This outstanding single-cutaway axe has a mahogany body, a maple top, and a very comfortable mahogany neck with a classy ebony fingerboard. Combine these premium tonewoods with the Mikael Akerfeldt SE Signature's pair of great-sounding humbucking pickups and quality hardware and you have a battle-tested instrument that's built to handle any style, on any stage.

What sets Opeth apart from other earth-shatteringly heavy bands? Start with frontman Mikael Akerfeldt's ability to seamlessly sprinkle melodic, at times even delicate elements into the music. This kind of versatility requires an instrument that's capable of going from a whisper to a roar, from pristine clean to super-heavy frenzy. That's exactly what PRS's Mikael Akerfeldt SE Signature gives you. You get an SE HFS Treble humbucker in the bridge position and an SE Vintage Bass 'bucker in the neck slot (both controlled by volume and tone controls plus a 3-way selector toggle), for an array of tones and stunning dynamic range. The quality extends to the PRS tremolo and super-stable PRS tuning machines. You'll love the appointments too; the Mikael Akerfeldt SE Signature's top has an eye-catching flame-maple veneer that sports an Opeth "O" logo, while the ebony fingerboard showcases Original PRS Bird inlays.
