PRS SE Guitar and Bass bargains

In the last few days, I’ve noticed some really interesting bargains on a few PRS SE guitars.  Firstly, some of the PRS SE Custom 22 models have been reduced to £499 or €599 (both solid and semi-hollow).  Then tonight I’ve noticed that the PRS SE Kestrel and Kingfisher basses have been reduced, with prices as low as £449.

The SE guitars are very highly reputed in their price range.  Although PRS is not well known for bass guitars, the Kestrel and Kingfisher had some great reviews when they came out.  At those prices, if I had any need for another guitar or bass, I wouldn’t hesitate.  Unfortunately, the only space left on my music room wall is reserved for the result of my guitar build!

I try to be retailer-neutral on this site so I’ve posted links to the PRS website rather than any particular retailer, but if you search around you should be able to find the cheapest prices quite easily.  If you’re outside Europe, check your local retailers for prices as I suspect these are global reductions.

I’d love to hear what you think of the guitars if anybody buys one of them, so feel free to comment on this post and make me jealous!

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.

  1. I’ve been looking at this bass and found it in a German webshop for €444. At first the price seemed suspiciously low since most shops charge at least €300 more.
    Do you know why the price dropped so drastically? Do they still hold the same quality?

      1. I don’t know really, but I can only imagine that people just didn’t buy them, because PRS is not known for making basses. They are still on the PRS website for 2017 although on Anderton’s they are shown as discontinued. I see where you found them, on Thomann – both the Kestrel and Kingfisher – and at that price they look like a steal and I wish I could buy one but I have no more space or guitar budget! If you get one, please let us know what you think of it.
