PRS 408 Standard, 408 Maple Top

Two of the newest additions to the PRS lineup are the 408 Standard and the 408 Maple Top. 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 those 100%-proprietary pickups to perfection. Those tweaks, combined with a set of mini switches, give the PRS 408 guitars a huge tonal palette. With the flick of a switch, you can send these flexible pickups into single-coil mode, evoking snappy, bell-like tones. Mix and match the pickups to taste: full humbucking, full single-coil, or a mix of both.

The PRS 408 Standard has a simple and elegant look. The all-mahogany body gives you a warm and mellow tone. The PRS 408 Maple Top adds a gorgeous flame-maple top and the punch that only maple can produce. Both guitars are finished in PRS’s stunning V12 finish. V12 offers the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of a nitro finish, with the non-cracking reliability you expect from a modern acrylic. Available in Pattern or Pattern Thin neck shapes, there is a 408 out there for everyone. If you’re looking for a workhorse PRS, the 408 Standard and the 408 Maple Top are two of the best do-it-all electric guitars on the market.
