With new Narrowfield pickups, it soars with the finest PRS models.
The 25th Anniversary PRS Modern Eagle III Stoptail Electric Guitar builds on the tradition of the Modern Eagle. The anniversary guitar is crafted with premium grade wood, classic Modern Eagle frets, a Modern Eagle wide fat neck carve, and a very hard and thin finish.
The stoptail edition of the 25th Anniversary Modern Eagle III is also enhanced with shadow bird inlays, an anniversary headstock eagle, a bound rosewood fretboard, and a unique color palette. Added to the guitar are 3 cutting edge narrowfield pickups. These PRS passive pickups are based on 57/08 humbuckers that have been "squished" to create a smaller magnetic field that senses a much shorter piece of the string. The result is a very musical new-sounding pickup system that blends the sonic attributes of single-coil, soapbar, and humbucker pickups.

Comments about PRS 25th Anniversary Modern Eagle III Stoptail Electric Guitar:
I went with my girlfriend to a local shop that opened recently and I saw that they had some PRS guitars and felt compelled to try them. I went from their lowest price PRS to this baby. Like I said in the other parts of my review it played super well, but it's expensive and I don't think I am experienced enough as a player to make that big of a purchase sound good to anyone in my family
The Narrowfield pickups are very unique, they sound great clean, good for dirty, but not neccesarily for super high gain stuff. The five way selector brings out some unique tones from this instrument; however, only having one volume and tone knob could limit someone hunting for tones.
The Modern Eagle sounds fantastic. The guitar, right off the wall, sat perfectly and felt almost as perfect. The frets were really polished and the action was nice. The tuners held up even under the heaviest bending I could throw at it.
Even though it was a great guitar, looks amazing, sounds great, and plays amazing, it would be really hard to dump over 4 grand into a guitar.
