A pioneer of progressive metal
Known for his technically complex rhythmic style and piercing tone, Mark Holcomb has established himself as an icon in the world of progressive metal. His huge success with the djent band Periphery has led his distinctive style and virtuosic talent to be instantly recognised around the world. And now, with the release of his signature 7-string model, it's your turn to showcase your ability.
It's crafted to the specs of the man himself. So you can trust that every detail harnesses Holcomb's unique style, and creates a feel that's worthy of the stage. And, with countless tours, five Periphery albums, and even a Grammy nomination under his belt – there's no doubt that the signature SE is built to the highest level. Put simply, it's the best in the business. And it's ready to ignite your performance.
Does it djent?
The question on everyone's mind. The answer to which is simple: without a doubt. Specifically voiced for Holcomb tone, the Seymour Duncan Alpha and Omega pickups kick out the destructive tones of Periphery's gigantic sound, with plenty of articulation. The Alpha neck pickup is unlike most, with a unique voicing that combines the best of both neck and bridge pickup qualities. So you can produce a fat, glassy sound with a well-defined pick attack and fretting-hand phrasing - ideal for djent and progressive metal styles.
It's got some grit to it. The Omega bridge pickup was crafted to provide a devastating midrange growl with a percussive character that slashes through the mix. But that's not to say that it won't offer those soaring melodies for your soloing. Because it'll unleash sublime clarity and brightness with every note you play. So whether you're playing complex lead lines, or more refined chord structures – you can count on these Seymour Duncans to deliver expert tone and sensational versatility throughout your performance.
Play without limits
Ultimately, a guitar should spark creativity – not restrict it. Which is why every aspect of the Holcomb signature is constructed with playability in mind. Experience easy transitions across the entirety of the fretboard thanks to an ultra-smooth ebony surface. It's combined with a sleek, satin-finished maple neck that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand, entailing endless hours of comfortable practice and performance. Enjoy effortless access to the upper frets with an ergonomic, dual-cutaway body design. So, whether you're shredding up high or unleashing fat, low-end riffs – the SE signature offers a feel that's tailored for the player.
True individual style
It demands audience attention. With a finish so eye-catching and unique, how could it not? A bevelled maple top and quilted maple veneer provide a breathtaking aesthetic, showcasing the Holcomb signature's sumptuous grain pattern. But its elegant design isn't just limited to the body. The iconic PRS bird inlays dance across the silky-smooth fretboard for even more individual flair. Topped off with a striking burst finish, the SE signature simply radiates one-of-a-kind style. So, whether you're rehearsing, or playing live – it's all eyes on you.
