Every aspect of the guitar was decided by Paul
The aptly named PRS Paul's Guitar is essentially a production version of Paul's personal guitar that he has been playing for years. Paul chose and specified every aspect of this guitar, including its tonewood selections, bird inlays, pickups, and Pattern neck shape. Put this guitar in your hands, and you're feeling the same vibe that inspires Paul to create these amazing instruments for the rest of us.
Solid mahogany topped with maple looks and sounds amazing
To give the PRS Paul's Guitar 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 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 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 proprietary pickups to perfection. In fact, he discovered that by tightening up the pickup field on a 408 bass pickup and extending the field on the treble pickup, he was actually able to extend the guitar's tonal spectrum. The PRS 408 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!
