      PRS SC 58 Nickel Hardware Electric Guitar (H68788)
Availability:  


Singlecut sensation with new finish, neck shape, and bridge.

A vintage-inspired singlecut with an artist-grade top, the SC 58 is perfect for more traditional single-cutaway players. The 24-1/2" scale length and electronics appointments make this instrument instantly comfortable to players who grew up using short-scale guitars. The PRS 2-piece bridge is the anchor of this guitar and enhances the natural tone of the woods.

2-Piece Adjustable Bridge
Previously only prototyped on Private Stock guitars, the new two-piece adjustable PRS bridge now comes standard on two new PRS models – the SC58, and the JA-15. Bridge specifications include triple weight saddles, triple weight thumb wheels, large posts, and extra mass. The added weight increases contact points and creates a more resonant, musical instrument. Machining rather than casting give the brass and aluminum bridge a stronger sound, and the quick-change style stoptail doesn’t fall when the strings are removed. “I am calling it the ‘New 2-piece adjustable sound transfer bridge’—We are very happy,” said Paul Reed Smith.

With a classic, resonant voice that is eminently recordable and gig ready, this beauty won't just take everything you've got and keep asking for more, it will do it with unforgettable sound and style.

The SC 58 also incorporates the following new features:

V12 Finish
Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.

Pattern Neck Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for us and a hallmark of our quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. 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.

Whether in woodworking, machining, or cast and die work, pattern making is the art of arriving at a perfect standard which can be duplicated or used to create new designs by "offsetting." All of our necks came to be as a result of offsetting from this original, Wide Fat design.

PRS Two-piece Adjustable Bridge
Previously only prototyped on Private Stock guitars, the new PRS two-piece adjustable bridge now comes standard on two PRS models: the SC 58 and the JA 15. The bridge plays a crucial role in the tonal path of a guitar by transferring the string's vibrations to the tonewood. When executed well, the bridge will enhance the wood's natural resonance. This two-piece bridge has added weight and mass, creating more contact points, which, in turn, create a more resonant, musical instrument. Similarly, machining rather than casting, gives the brass and aluminum bridge a stronger sound. "I am calling it the 'new two-piece adjustable sound transfer bridge' – I'm very happy," said Paul Reed Smith.

  • Beautiful tone machine

    As reviewed by Joe Coladonato on 2/23/2011

    Absolutely stunning guitar. beautiful craftsmanship and really nice feel. The neck is a gentle V-shape. Smaller than wide-fat and very comfortable. Amazing tone and sustain. Just stunning. Pricey but worth it. This is what a les paul should be/used to be. I highly recommend this guitar to any singlecut fan.
