PRS SE NF3 Narrowfield DD "S" Pickups

Discover a New Voice With Narrowfield DD “S” Pickups

The real magic of the SE NF3 lies in its trio of Narrowfield DD “S” pickups. Developed by PRS, these specialty pickups combine powerful magnets with a unique “deep dish” (DD) bobbin design to achieve incredible note definition and nuanced harmonic overtones. The mixed magnet/steel pole piece layout maintains tight lows without losing high-end shimmer. Whether it’s crystalline cleans, raunchy rhythms or liquid leads, these pickups project a bold, focused voice that cuts through any mix. The 5-way blade selector gives you instant access to their full range.

PRS SE NF3 Poplar Body

Balanced Tone From a Resonant Poplar Body

Complementing the pickups is a poplar body that strikes an ideal balance between warmth and articulation. The solidbody construction enhances resonance and sustain, allowing the Narrowfield pickups to truly shine by capturing the subtleties of your playing—especially in genres where precise articulation is an integral part of the performance and sound. You’ll love how the poplar responds to your technique and truly sings, whether strumming chords or ripping solos. It’s a tonally versatile platform for putting your best tone forward.

PRS SE NF3 Wide Thin Neck With Maple Fretboard

Signature PRS Wide Thin Neck and Smooth Playability

One of the hallmarks of PRS guitars is their incredible playability—and the SE NF3 delivers in spades. The bolt-on maple neck features PRS’ beloved Wide Thin profile that’s equally at home for rhythm playing and lead work. The maple fretboard boasts a comfortable 10" radius for smooth bending and vibrato, and iconic bird inlays adorn the neck with tasteful PRS style. On top of it all, fret access is a breeze up to the 22nd fret, lending itself to unhindered playing in every register. Each aspect of the neck works in harmony to provide the signature PRS playing experience, inspiring confidence when you’re rocking out and getting lost in intricate melodies.
