The PRS SC 58 Harkens Back - and Soars Forward

The PRS SC 58 is a breathtaking guitar to behold. A vintage-inspired singlecut with a striking artist-grade top, the SC 58 will instantly feel like home if you grew up playing short-scale single-cutaways. The fit and finish of the SC 58 - typical of Paul Reed Smith - are impeccable. And the sound - this instrument speaks with a mellifluous voice that records like a dream. If you're a reformed axe slinger, you'll recognize the DC 58 as several steps above from the moment you pick it up. Thoughtful touches abound - such as the perfectly formed belly cut that lets the '58 fit you like a glove. From tonewoods to 57/08 pickups, there's artistry and genius in the details of this gorgeously crafted guitar.

PRS SC 58 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • PRS V12 finish offer protection without killing your sound
  • PRS Pattern Neck offers comfortable playability
  • Built to be a tone machine
PRS V12 finish offer protection without killing your sound

This '58 is finished in a stunning PRS Whale Blue V12 finish. If you're seeking pure vintage gestalt with a sophisticated edge, your search ends here. Over a decade in the making, 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 - your '58 will feel like an old instrument, but will stay flawless-looking for years to come.

PRS Pattern Neck offers comfortable playability

The SC 58 is fitted with PRS' Pattern neck. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern neck is an updated Wide Fat PRS neck style based on designs Paul Reed Smith did in the '70s and '80s for Carlos Santana, Peter Frampton and Howard Leese of Heart. The'58's bound rosewood fingerboard is butter under your fingertips, and with exquisite mother-of-pearl and Paua Heart Bird inlays, no one will mistake your axe for anything other than a PRS.

Built to be a tone machine

Transferring string vibration to the tonewood, the bridge plays a critical role in your guitar's sound. A properly executed bridge will enhance the wood's natural resonance. The SM 58's two-piece brass and aluminum bridge is machined instead of cast, and PRS has increased the weight and mass, creating more contact points. This gives the '58 a highly resonant, musical voice. Tuners are often thought of as being somewhat utilitarian, but in a hardtail guitar that's where the tuning stability buck stops. PRS Phase III locking tuners are an elegant design with smooth, high-tolerance pegs, large buttons, an open back, and closed housing. And, yes - locking tuners do make a difference on a hardtail!

PRS SC 58 Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Exquisite Tobacco Sunburst Carved Artist-grade Figured Maple Top
  • mother-of-pearl and Paua Heart Bird inlays for that uniquely PRS touch
  • Distinctive rosewood headstock veneer with inlaid signature
  • 57/08 humbucking pickups for versatile electric tones
  • Phase III Locking Tuners enhance tuning stability
  • Pattern neck shape instantly feels like "home"
  • Resonant and eminently musical sounding
The PRS SC 58 is a breathtaking guitar that plays like butter!
