PRS press release
PRS Guitars has welcomed Nashville virtuoso Brent Mason to their family of signature artists. Brent worked with Paul Reed Smith for several years to arrive at this unique model that meets the need for a versatile and reliable, recording and gigging instrument.
Most notably, the electronics configuration includes specially-wound narrow 408 treble and bass pickups with a 305 pickup in the middle position. This unique combination is paired with a 5-way blade switch, providing an amazing variety of tones. Other features include a Korina body and a 25 ¼” scale length rock maple neck.
Mason says of his new guitar, "What I look for in a guitar is tone and playability. Equipped with the perfect pick-up combination that gives you single or double coil sounds at the flip of a switch and a middle pickup that further expands the tone spectrum, this guitar is possibly the most versatile guitar I've had in my hands."
While Brent Mason is predominantly known for his work as a Nashville session guitarist, his playing can also be heard on countless TV commercials, film sound tracks and television scores. In a career lasting more than twenty-five years, Brent has recorded with Neil Diamond, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Merle Haggard, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, and many, many more.
