Experience PRS Underway, New Guitars Introduced
PRS Guitars’ sixth annual open house event, Experience PRS 2012, runs through tomorrow at the company’s headquarters in Stevensville, Maryland. Along with appearances and performances by Mark Tremonti and John McLaughlin, the company also has used the event to launch several new guitar models like the Stripped 58, a vintage-inspired single-cut with a curly maple top, mahogany back, rosewood fretboard, 57/08 pickups, and PRS’ two-piece bridge. Other new guitars include the Swamp Ash Studio Multi-Foil, which has a metallic color coat that is blotted to give each finish individual character, the SE Custom 24 7-String, which has a beveled maple top with flame-maple veneer, mahogany back, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, bird inlays, and SE HFS and SE pickups, and the 408 MT and 408 Standard, which are offered in maple-top (MT) and all-mahogany (Standard) configurations and use the company’s Signature/408 pickups, which were previously used on Private Stock Signature and Limited Edition instruments.
