The PRS 408 Brazilian solidbody electric guitar is a tonal chameleon that's ready for any gig or session. Premium mahogany, select figured maple, and buttery Brazilian rosewood come together in an eye-popping guitar that gives you playability and tone to die for. The innovative 408 pickups deliver meaty humbucking sounds; flick a switch and you've got glassy single-coil chime. The just-right neck carve and stunning V12 finish give this superb instrument awesome feel and visuals. It all adds up to a scrumptious, versatile axe. The PRS 408 Brazilian: you know you want one.

PRS 408 Brazilian Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Solid mahogany topped with maple looks and sounds amazing
  • Custom-wound 408 pickups and switching provide endless tone
  • PRS V12 finish feels like nitro and protects like acrylic
Superior tonewoods, for incredible tone, balance, and looks

To give the PRS 408 Brazilian a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select figured maple 10 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 a deliciously warm, balanced sound, with plenty of sustain and snap. Fabulous, but this instrument's tonewood story goes even deeper. With a Brazilian rosewood neck and artist-grade Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, this is one rare bird. Better grab one while you can!

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 Brazilian 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 Brazilian 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.
