Paul Reed Smith SE Chris Robertson Signature Electric Guitar

When on tour fronting the hard rock band Black Stone Cherry, Chris Robertson heavily relies on SE Series instruments. His love of single coil neck pickups led to the design of this signature model.

“The reason for the humbucker/soapbar pairing comes from my love of singlecoil neck pickups and soapbar pickups in general. The wide variety of tones the guitar is capable of with this set up is astounding! The middle position with the 57/08 split is beautiful. I hope everyone enjoys these guitars as much as I do!” – Chris Robertson, Black Stone Cherry

The SE Chris Robertson is a singlecut guitar with a mahogany back and maple top with flame maple veneer and a 22 fret, 24.5” scale length Wide Fat mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard. With a Soapbar in the neck position and a 57/08 “S” humbucker in the bridge, the SE Chris Robertson delivers old-school tone to match its classic appointments. The three-way toggle switch and volume and push/pull tone controls for each pickup, allow players to dial in a wide range of tones.
