PRS SE Kestrel 4-string Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Alder body provides a balanced tone with just enough bite

Alder body provides a balanced tone with just enough bite

With its extremely balanced tone, alder is an oft-chosen tonewood for the electric bass guitar. Alder balances low, mid, and high frequencies with a highly resonant thump and sustain. Alder also provides a slightly pronounced upper midrange, enhancing the instrument's clarity. Neither too dark, nor too bright, you'll love the balanced tone of this popular tonewood.

Maple and walnut neck enhances tonal balance

Although composed primarily of maple, this PRS SE Kestrel's five-ply neck also benefits from the addition of maple, which further enhances this bass guitar's tonal balance, while providing additional strength and an enhanced appearance. This bass guitar's neck-through design allows trouble-free access to its entire fingerboard, in addition to providing everlasting, awe-inspiring sustain.
