PRESS RELEASE: PRS Guitars' newest three-pickup electric guitars, the DC3 (above) and the NF3 (below), feature proprietary PRS pickups and PRS's all new flat body shape for a classic look and sound.

Both models also come standard with PRS's new retro "V12" finish, "Pattern Regular" neck shape, and a PRS Tremolo bridge system with steel components that give a clear and expansive tone.

The DC3 is a modernized, vintage inspired three single-coil pickup guitar with an alder body. Its three proprietary PRS DC3 single-coil pickups are based on PRS's award wining 513 platform and give the DC3 a warm, clear tone. The NF3 introduces a korina body and three proprietary Narrowfield pickups. Narrowfields use the same wire as 57/08s, but are narrower pole to pole and deeper front to back, providing exceptional clarity.
