Mark Holcomb (Periphery) Signature Model Unleashed!
One of the hottest metal acts in the world right now, Periphery’s hard-hitting blend of polyrhythms, crushing riffs and soaring lead lines takes no less than three guitarists to deliver. We’re very pleased to have one third of the trinity, Mark Holcomb, in the PRS family – and super-excited to announce the release of his new signature model!
Based on the classic PRS Custom 24, Mark’s guitar has lots of artist-specified features that make it a proper fire-breathing metal monster. Flat fingerboard, Mark’s signature Seymour Duncan pickups, a new design plate-style bridge, green abalone “J” birds, black Hipshot O-ring controls and glow in the dark side dots add up to a very distinctive, characterful addition to the PRS line-up. And these features complement the guitar’s carved, figured maple “10” Top, mahogany back, 24 fret Pattern Thin neck, PRS Phase III locking tuners, and volume, tone, 5-way blade switch control layout.
If you fancy getting your hands on one of the most aggressive PRS guitars currently available, be quick! There is no limit to the number of Mark Holcomb Custom 24s being produced, BUT the ‘order window’ for the guitar is open only until 6 March 2015. So be sure to get your order in with your PRS dealer before this date if you don’t want to miss out..!
