I've had this guitar for a few months now and I'm completely addicted to it. I own a 1981 Gibson Les Paul Custom and an Fender American Stratocaster. Both guitars have been side-lined because of this one. The 513 can impressivly emulate every tone I can get out of both of my other guitars and more. Mine is in charcoal burst like the picture and I can't explain how little the picture does the guitar justice in person. Simply stunning. It plays like a dream as well. I'm also really impressed at how well it stays in tune thanks to the locking tuners. I can do all the insane divebombs I want and the guitar retains tuning like it had a floyd rose on it. I play through a Mesa Boogie Mark V and with that combination, I can go from Lamb of God, to Led Zepplin, to Jimi Hendrix, to... well almost anything in between with little to no effort. This is why I dub it the swiss army guitar. If you get bored of the same tones over and over and are too lazy to change guitars like me (lol), then this guitar is right up your alley. Worth every penny.
So, I went to my local Sam Ash to look at guitars. I was not expecting to buy one, but this just blew everything else I had played out of the water. The 13 different tones you can get out of it make it seem like you have 4 different guitars.Nice job Paul Reed Smith, nice job.
This guitar is so much more than I could have ever hoped for. I can't say enough about prs products but this guitar I assure you, is nothing short of spectacular. The 513 pickups just sing. I haven't put it down since it arrived. Unbelievable, thanks Paul Reed Smith.
