more metal that your gran’s left hip.” - paul allender
paul allender, lead guitarist of cradle of filth, is no stranger to the prs se signature lineup. paul started playing prs when he left cradle of filth and started the band the blood devine. he purchased a secondhand ce24 and used it exclusively throughout the band’s days and brought it with him when he rejoined cradle of filth in 2000. he then sent a design of his own to prs featuring a purple and black sunburst on a curly maple top and replacing prs’s traditional bird inlays with bats. prs built this guitar for allender through the private stock department, which eventually influenced his original se model released in 2007. the original se paul allender model is updated here with the addition of a scarlet red color option, nickel hardware, an ebony fretboard, and emg pickups.
