NAMM 2011: PRS announces new Studio electric guitar

NAMM 2011 PRESS RELEASE: PRS's new 22 fret, 25" scale length Studio model electric guitar is a fresh, modern rendition of a traditional single-single-hum guitar set up with the beauty and brightness of a maple top.

The possibilities are vast with PRS's proprietary 57/08 Narrowfield pickups in the middle and bass positions in conjunction with a 57/08 humbucking bridge pickup. Screaming lead tones, crisp rhythm tones and a redesigned 5-way blade switch also enhance the flexibility of this guitar in the studio or on stage.

Other features include mahogany back and neck, V12 finish, rosewood fretboard, "pattern neck" with "pattern thin option," 2011 birds, tremolo or stoptail bridge option, PRS locking tuners, nickel or gold hardware, and redesigned lampshade push/pull volume and tone controls.
