From Our Research Team:
One Guitar, Many TonesThe PRS 408 Maple Top solidbody electric guitar is tonal chameleon that's ready for any gig. Select tonewoods like mahogany, quilt maple, and rosewood combine to give you a great-looking guitar with tone to die for. The innovative 408 pickups offer warm, full humbucking tones and clear, glassy single-coil tones in a single package. With the flick of a switch you can send these flexible pickups into single-coil mode evoking the snappy, bell-like tones you need. The pattern neck carve and stunning V12 finish give this guitar a great feel and look. The PRS 408 Maple Top is a true workhorse guitar.
PRS 408 Maple Top Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Solid mahogany topped with maple looks and sounds amazing
To give the PRS 408 Maple Top a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select 10-top quilt maple top. The 408's mahogany body gives you natural tonal warmth, which is offset perfectly by the brighter tone of its maple top. Together, these tonewoods give you an incredibly balanced sound.
Custom-wound 408 pickups and switching provide endless tone
When PRS released their Signature Limited model, everyone who got a chance to check out the new 408 pickups was absolutely blown away. But true to his perfectionist nature, Paul Reed Smith continued to tweak these 100% proprietary pickups to perfection. In fact, he discovered that by tightening up the pickup field on a 408 Bass pickup, he was actually able to create an even better-sounding treble pickup. The PRS 408 Maple Top electric guitar features a pair of these amazing 408 pickups. But it doesn't stop there, these amazing pickups also have dedicated mini switches, so you can shift to the timeless single-coil sound instantaneously. Best of all, there is no volume loss when switching to single-coil mode!
PRS V12 finish feels like nitro and protects like acrylic
The PRS 408 Maple Top is finished in a stunning PRS V12 finish. If you're seeking vintage vibe with a sophisticated edge, your search ends here. Over a decade in the making, the PRS V12 finish blends the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of a nitro finish with the non-cracking reliability you expect from a modern acrylic finish. It has a classic feel all its own - it makes your axe feel like an well-worn instrument - one that will stay flawless-looking for years to come.
