A gorgeous top with versatile electronics and comfortable neck.
You'll be inspired by the tone-tweaking potential that this 408 has to offer thanks to some elegant electronics. The body is made of mahogany with a set mahogany neck that has an upgraded Honduran rosewood fingerboard. PRS guitars are known for the comfort of their neck shapes and this one has the popular Pattern Thin contour and 25" scale. It features nickel hardware with a PRS tremolo and locking tuners.
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 (hence their asymmetric appearance). This pickup configuration (comprised of four coils and offering eight sounds) stems back to Paul’s experimentation on the Sorcerer’s Apprentice guitars in the early 1980’s. Thanks to the simple but versatile switching system featuring mini-toggle switches that provide numerous combinations of humbucking and singlecoil tones, the 408 Maple Top provides stunning articulation and musical clarity. Includes case.
