Mike Akerfeldt Profile:

Opeth Band Website:

“I’m a writer, a rhythm, lead, and acoustic player. I try to be as versatile as possible, that’s why I needed a guitar that can match those ambitions both live and in the studio. On top of things, it’s proper eye candy too!” – Mike Åkerfeldt

PRS welcomes frontman Mike Åkerfeldt of Opeth to the PRS family with this signature model SE. One of the first SE models to include old-school bird inlays, the Åkerfeldt signature model SE is both handsome and versatile. The 24 jumbo frets, PRS designed tremolo bridge, SE HFS and SE Vintage Bass pickups, volume and tone control with a 3-way toggle switch all add to this guitar’s unique voice, while the Opeth “O” on the body, tortoise shell finish, and gold hardware give this model a unique look.

  1. I met him last year at NAMM. Cool guy, and this guitar seem pretty nice. It’s rare to find Ebony in subsidiant brands.

    • Yeah, They’re coming to Greece to give concerts almost every year but never had the chance to be in one of em.
      Anyway,where does NAMM take place?

  1. No trackbacks yet.
