PRS s 22 fret, 25 scale length Studio model electric guitar is a fresh, modern rendition of a traditional single-single-hum guitar set up with the beauty and brightness of a maple top. The possibilities are vast with PRS s proprietary Narrowfield&174 pickups in the middle and bass positions in conjunction with a 5708 humbucking bridge pickup. Screaming lead tones, crisp rhythm tones and 5-way blade switch also enhance the flexibility of this guitar in the studio or on stage. Other features include mahogany back and neck, V12 finish, rosewood fretboard, pattern neck with pattern thin option, birds, tremolo or stoptail bridge option, PRS locking tuners, nickel or gold hardware, and redesigned lampshade knobs volume and pushpull tone controls. Feature Neck Shape Perfected after years of prototyping, the new "Pattern" neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style based on Paul s pre-factory design. These necks were found on the instruments built for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese from the late 70 s to the mid 80 s.
