PRS SE Kestrel Bass Black

Paul Reed Smith is the founder of the iconic PRS Guitars, a U.S. maker of high quality guitars, basses and amplifiers. In his early days, Smith hung out backstage after concerts, selling his guitars to artists like Derek St. Holmes, Carlos Santana and Howard Leese to make ends meet. As more musicians sought Smith’s handcrafted guitars, he acquired enough orders to start his company in 1985. Because of its precise attention to details, it didn’t take long for PRS to gain a loyal following of musician across the U.S. and Europe.  Every guitar and amplifier that PRS sells is based on decades of testing, reinvention and a commitment to raising the standard. The workers at the PRS shop are avid musicians who strive to make the perfect tools of creativity. SHOP OUR HUGE SELECTION OF PAUL REED SMITH GUITARS!

THE SE Kestrel 4 String Bass

by Paul Reed Smith - BEAUTIFUL BLACK

What do you get when you add affordability to Paul Reed Smith’s attention to detail and its traditional single-coil, four-string electric bass? The PRS SE Kestrel. The bass has a comfortable 34-inch scale, 22 frets and an alder cutaway body that will instantly feel comfortable in your hands and give you the punchy tones that you crave. A modern Hipshot TransTone bridge and tailpiece give you the choice to string the bass through the body or bridge as you perfect your tone. 

The combination of a glossy black finish, matching pickguard and a dark rosewood fingerboard with bird inlays give the SE Kestrel an effortlessly sleek look. You’ll love how the bass’ alder body punches out naturally balanced tones throughout all the frequencies. The five-ply maple neck with walnut strips further enhances the instrument’s balance, strength and aesthetics. For the ultimate playability, the SE Kestrel’s neck-through construction gives you easy access to the entire fingerboard. The proprietary 4B “S” (single-coil) treble and bass pickups, as well as pickguard-mounted tone knob add to the bass’ punchy tones, flexibility and deep growls.
