Announcing the PRS SE Clint Lowery Signature Model Electric Guitar

The new PRS SE Clint Lowery guitar is designed for metal and hard-rock players with attitude

Stevensville, MD (September 18, 2012) – Largely known as the lead guitarist for Sevendust, Clint Lowery is recognized worldwide for his raw melodies and empowering riffs. These same tones helped land him a gig as Korn’s touring guitarist in 2007. The new PRS SE Clint Lowery guitar is designed for metal and hard-rock players with attitude, and with an adjustable stoptail and 25 ½” scale length, it is perfect for dropped-tuning. In fact, at Clint’s request, the SE Clint Lowery ships tuned to C#/drop “B”[C# G# E B F# B].

The SE Clint Lowery comes in opaque black with white binding on the body, neck, and headstock. It also features a new and exclusive inlay pattern and body shape as well as black nickel hardware for a distinct look that’s as commanding as the music you’ll make with one.

The SE Clint Lowery features a beveled mahogany body with white binding on the body, neck, and headstock, 24-fret, 25 ½” scale length mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard and Clint Lowry designed inlays, PRS Designed SE adjustable stoptail bridge and tuners, black nickel hardware, String Gauges: 11, 18, 22p, 32, 44, 56 tuned to C#/drop “B”: C#, G#, E, B, F#, B.  The guitar has a wide fat neck profile and comes equipped with SE HFS treble and Vintage bass pickups with one volume and push/pull tone control with 3-way toggle switch.

Jackson Audio’s pedal collaboration with modern funk hero Cory Wong could have taken a few different paths. Considering Wong’s style, a compressor would have been an obvious choice. Instead, the Optimist is a dual overdrive that builds on a Klon-inspired baseline, adds a second overdrive, and has a clever EQ to create a super-flexible overdrive. Named after Wong’s second album, The Optimist suits Wong’s exuberant and fun-loving personality. But it also describes the way you might approach a gig with this pedal in hand. Together, the two separate overdrives and active EQ give you enough tones to cover almost any gig this side of Slayer cover band.
