PRS 408 Maple Top 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
Solid mahogany topped with maple looks and sounds amazing

To give this 408 Maple Top solidbody electric guitar a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select figured maple top. This 408 Maple Top'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 at Sweetwater 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. This PRS 408 Maple Top solidbody 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

This PRS 408 Maple Top solidbody electric guitar is finished in a stunning PRS V12 finish. If you're seeking a vintage vibe with a sophisticated edge, then 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 stay flawless-looking for years to come.
