According to David Grissom during an interview with Five Watt World, he is in talks with Paul Reed Smith about the release of a PRS DGT SE model. The video entitled ‘Guitar or Amp: Where to Spend Your Money, with special guest David Grissom!’ lets the cat out of the bag. But how long will it take for an actual release?

PRS DGT SE?

During the interview with Five Watt World, David Grissom said that he and PRS are “having that conversation right now” regarding an SE version of the DGT. This could potentially be a huge seller for PRS, as its Core US DGT model is one of the company’s most popular models among guitarists all over the world.

The DGT is based on the McCarty platform with a unique DGT neck shape, taller frets, special pickups, and a revised control layout. Grissom and Paul spent a year A/B-ing more than forty sets of pickups before nailing the vintage-voice of DGT humbuckers.

DGT Specifications

The current PRS DGT is a pretty amazing guitar and has very specific specifications.This includes a pair of PRS DGT pickups  wired with two volume controls with a Push/Pull tone control and three-Way toggle switch. They also have a fairly meaty DGT neck profile and 22 tall frets. Normally, they ship with Moon inlays, rather than the PRS Birds, though you can opt for the Birds as a special order if you wish.

I own a PRS DGT myself and it is a beautiful guitar. And as I like plain finishes, I went for an Antique White model. But there are lots of fancy 10 tops in this range as well. Hopefully, we will see some of these features on an SE model, if it ever makes it out into the real world.

When?

Since the PRS Silver Sky SE John Mayer model was released just recently, I do think we may well see a PRS DGT SE model. It would make perfect sense, as so many PRS players love this particular model. You have to wait right until the end of the Five Watt World video below to hear Grissom confirm that he is in talks about this potential new model, so the rumour comes straight from the horse’s mouth. However, we could wait some time before we see an actual production model, as both Paul Reed Smith and David Grissom are perfectionists, and they would both need to sign off on this one.

    I think I’d rather save up and get an american core prs dgt. You never know what compromises will be made.

      I think PRS SE models are pretty well made these days. I own a Core DGT and it is nice, and I also own a SE Singlecut and it is also really well made. Is one worth the extra cash for being Core? YMMV, I think both are decent guitars, and offer players plenty of good tones, plus great playability.
