PRS Guitars Unveils New SE Signature Model with Periphery’s Mark Holcomb
Periphery guitarist and PRS release new mercilessly addictive more affordable guitar: The SE Holcomb Signature Model
(STEVENSVILLE, MD) June 28, 2016 – The band Periphery has become a force to be reckoned with in the progressive metal scene thanks to their complex rhythms and soaring melodies. Guitarist Mark Holcomb helps achieve this full, lethal sound with his PRS guitars and signature Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega pickups. PRS and Holcomb have worked closely together to develop a truly unique guitar for the SE Series lineup.
"With my SE signature model, we managed to capture all of the defining characteristics of my Maryland-made guitar and turn it into a streamlined, less-costly package. It is an incredibly special instrument, and one that is now the primary focus of my rig in the studio and onstage." – Mark Holcomb, Periphery
The SE Mark Holcomb model truly stands on its own in the PRS lineup and delivers addictive playability thanks to some unique specifications, including a 24-fret, 25.5” scale length wide thin satin maple neck with 20” radius ebony fretboard. Holcomb’s signature pickups provide the right amount of output and articulation whether you’re playing sophisticated chords or solos and whether you’re playing alone or working in the mix of a band. Other specifications include a quilted maple veneer, black chrome hardware, Mark Holcomb Signature Seymour Duncan “Omega” treble pickup, Mark Holcomb Signature Seymour Duncan “Alpha” bass pickup, and a 3-way blade pickup switch with push/pull tone knob for coil splitting. Ships tuned to drop C.

I've been very inspired by Olafur Arnalds' new #IslandSongs project and I wrote/recorded this little piece this morning with Olafur's music and Iceland in general bouncing around in my head. I thought it would be a good opportunity to add a new song to the Requisite Forms collection, which are all songs that I've written and recorded in one day, accompanied with a simple video.
A download of these songs are available exclusively to my subscribers on Bandcamp: http://lowercasenoises.bandcamp.com/s...
I hope this piece helps you a little bit, as it was a much needed cathartic experience for me this morning.
