Maple Top charcoal burst PRS 408.
Straight out of the box this has been a dream to play.
Very, very, nice. HNGD!
GOOD LORD that's beautiful!
Not a PRS expert (had a 1998 McCarty-stolen!) still makes me sick...
Those humbuckers look interesting..can you provide some details? Looks like a double single coil on the neck?
Are those tap switches or phase switches?
HNGD by the way[emoji2]
Congrats - nice looker she is.
How does she sound ?
Need a PRS at some point. Enjoy!!
very Nice! congrats
From the PRS website as they put it better than I ever could:
PRS 408 pickups were designed to extend the guitar’s tonal spectrum by narrowing the field of the bass pickup to increase its focus and widening the field of the treble pickup to increase its sound field
Those are tap switches, when on they add 1500 turns to the active coil and remove the passive coil from the circuit. When engaged you hear tonal differences and no real volume loss.
Very different to my Eric Johnson strats, but that is what I wanted. Getting used to the darker humbuckers will take sometime. Overall has a very nice tonal spectrum and with 8 sounds combinations I'm sure I will find great sounds.
Beautiful. Different color but it reminds me of when I first started seeing the allman brothers band in the 90s and dicky and warren were both playing prs guitars.
HNGD! Beautiful guitar! While I am diehard Fender man, I have always favored PRS over Gibsons, and I love the different tonal options on this model. Nice score!
HNGD!!! Man, that's purty!
I've gotten back into liking humbuckers recently after not liking a HB guitar in almost 40 years, but my Ibanez semi-hollow body seems to have wrested top spot from my strat, although I love 'em both a LOT. I seem to have mellowed out a lot and that full HB sound appeals to me again. So I'm sort of mildly lusting after a PRS, although I've never actually played one so at this point it's just based on their beautiful looks and some of the stuff I've read about them. I don't think I'll build up any serious GAS until and unless I actually spend some time with one, so I'm just not doing that...
But someday, when the time is right, I may take a serious look at them. I'm particularly intrigued by the 594, but not necessarily. Maybe if they ever do a semi-budget model with that configuration... Will have to be a hardtail though and that limits the choices a fair amount...
Wow! Look at that. Very nice.
