You get amazing tonal variety and elegant good looks from the Paul Reed Smith 305. Pick one up and you'll be a believer!

PRS 305 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • V12 finish feels like nitro and protects like acrylic
  • Pattern profile neck feels great and plays smoothly
Three single-coil pickups deliver beefy vintage tones

The PRS 305 packs a trio of 305 single-coil pickups with a rich, snappy sound. The 305 single-coils have a beefier sound than most single-coils, giving you the wide range needed to coax vintage rock tones as easily as warmer clean tones too. If you like your amplifier now, you'll love how it sounds with the PRS 305.

V12 finish feels like nitro and protects like acrylic

The PRS 305 is coated in a stunning PRS V12 finish. If you're seeking a 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, and makes your axe feel like a well-worn instrument. One that will look flawless for years to come.

Pattern profile neck feels great and plays smoothly

The 305 is fitted with PRS's Pattern neck. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style based on designs Paul Reed Smith did in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese of Heart. The 305's maple fingerboard is butter under your fingertips, and with exquisite mother-of-pearl and Paua Heart Bird inlays, no one will mistake your axe for anything other than a PRS.
