show time

With blazing August melting everyone’s minds like a lollypop, it’s hard to think forward to the cooler climes of autumn but everyone at Guitarist and our sister mags Guitar Techniques and Total Guitar are doing just that as we gear up for hosting the UK Guitar Show in London on 29-30 September (see page 28). There’s some top-drawer attractions planned for the show, including an exhibition of Rory Gallagher’s guitars, a pantheon of big-name guitar makers from Fender to PRS all showing off their latest goodies, plus live performances from stellar players including Martin Simpson, Misha Mansoor, Simon McBride and many more besides. For us mere mortals here at the mags, it means a return to the rehearsal rooms as Nev Martin, editor of Guitar Techniques, Mick Taylor of That Pedal…

upping the standards

The term ‘Standard’ might be applied to the most coveted glued-neck guitar there is but in traditional PRS lexicography, ‘Standard’ means without a maple top to differentiate it from the Custom. Today, while there are no Standards in the USA Core lineup, they form a major part of the more rock ’n’ roll S2 line where these all-mahogany guitars are also ID’d by classic dot inlays rather than the trademark PRS birds. As we move further down the price scale the offshore-made SE line has a trio of Standards (245, Standard 24, and Standard 24 Multi-Foil) plus two new signature models, the 2018 Santana and Tremonti Standards we see here. And with the exception of that Multi-Foil model, the big difference is the price, having been made in Indonesia, as…

the standard background

The first wave of all-mahogany Indonesian-made SE Standards launched back in late 2014 and included a Standard 24 and 22, Singlecut Standard and Tremonti Standard, with the Santana Standard and P-90 equipped Santana Standard Special appearing slightly later into 2015. “They were originally developed for the third world markets,” explains PRS Europe’s MD, Gavin Mortimer, but a range that kicked off, back then, at £399 (including a gigbag) soon found its way into the USA and European markets. Instead of using their long-time partner for the SE line, World Music in Korea, the Standards came from Indonesia’s PT Wildwood facility that, certainly around the time of their launch, was also building for Yamaha, Schecter, Fender and ESP among others. As of 2018, however, SEs heading to the USA are now being produced…
