PRS is proud to welcome Fredrik Åkesson – guitarist and backing vocalist for the landmark prog metal band Opeth – to our family of SE signature artists. Veteran of the bands Talisman, Krux, and Arch Enemy, Åkesson has been described by Opeth’s frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt (also an SE signature artist) as, “an old-school shredder.” This background along with Åkesson’s knowledge of theory and scales has allowed him to reinforce Opeth’s trademark sound with fast riffs and virtuoso playing.

His signature model, the SE Fredrik Åkesson, features a single cutaway body with an extra-deep cutaway for better access to the upper frets, a maple top with quilted maple veneer and thick mahogany back, a 24.5” scale length, 22 fret wide fat mahogany neck with ebony fretboard and PRS bird inlays, and a TonePros adjustable stoptail bridge. The Åkesson also comes standard with a volume and tone control for each pickup and a 3-way toggle on the upper bout, but this traditional configuration is “inverted” with the treble controls in front of the bass controls to mirror Åkesson’s preferred setup, which allows easy access to the bridge pickup controls.
