PRS 509 Figured Top - Black Gold Wrap Burst with Pattern Regular Neck
More On The Way Notify me

Nine Different Pickup Combinations

The Paul Reed Smith 509 solidbody electric guitar boasts an amazing array of humbucking and single-coil tones, thanks to five single-coil pickups mounted in the carved figured maple top. The easy-to-use electronics package lets you switch between nine different tonal variations via a 5-way pickup selector and two mini toggles. The 509 also features a mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, 25.25" scale length, mother-of-pearl bird inlays, and a PRS Gen III trem. The PRS 509 top packs tonal versatility and flawless playability into a show-stoppingly beautiful package.

Nine humbucking and single-coil tones

What puts the PRS 509 on the map is its extremely diverse pickup system. At first glance, the 509 appears to have a standard H/S/H pickup configuration, but those humbuckers are actually independent, side-by-side single-coil pickups. Thanks to the 509's flexible pickup switching, you can set these pickups as true single-coils, or full-on humbuckers. In combination with the guitar's 5-way pickup selector, this adds up to a total of nine distinct pickup configurations. Take it from Sweetwater's guitar experts — the PRS 509 has the tonal variety you need for any gig.

Pattern Regular-profile neck feels great and plays smoothly

The PRS 509 gives you a Pattern Regular-profile mahogany neck fitted with a rosewood fretboard. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern Regular neck carve is based on Paul Reed Smith's original, pre-factory neck design — the same one used on instruments Paul built in the late '80s at PRS's Virginia Avenue location. You'll love the feel and playability of the PRS 509 electric guitar!

PRS V12 finish feels like nitro and protects like acrylic

If you're seeking vintage vibe with a sophisticated edge, then your search ends here. The PRS 509 electric guitar is protected by a stunning PRS V12 finish. Over a decade in the making, PRS's V12 finish blends the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of a nitro finish with the reliability you'd expect from a modern acrylic finish. It has a classic feel all its own, while giving the 509 that dipped-in-glass look — one that will stay flawless-looking for years to come.
