Superior tonewoods, for incredible tone, balance, and looks

To give the PRS 408 Artist Top a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select figured maple artist-grade 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 East Indian 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 Artist 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 Artist 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 that makes your axe feel like a well-worn instrument. One that will look flawless for years to come.
