513 stands for the 5 pickups and 13 sounds that give you an tremendous palette of tones.
513 stands for 5 pickups and 13 sounds, achieved with an easy to use integrated electronics control package, which includes volume control, tone control and two blade switches. One blade switch is a 5-way pickup selector, and the other is a 3-way mode switch that allows you to select between the singlecoil, clear humbucking and heavy humbucking modes. One of our most versatile instruments, this 513 model comes with a maple top, V12 finish, and Pattern Regular rosewood neck.
The finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.
Pattern Regular Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of PRS quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The new "Pattern Regular" neck shape is similar to the traditional PRS regular neck found on guitars made in the late 80's at PRS's former Virginia Avenue location.
This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows PRS to even more preciously shape and consistently reproduce their necks.

Comments about PRS 513 With Rosewood Neck Electric Guitar:
I wanted an instrument that played beautifully, was versatile, and was of high-quality construction, and this guitar has it all. It has humbucker/Les Paul tones but also very strat-like single coil tones. The only thing they could have improved on was the electronics of the middle switch. It is the same in all three modes, thus it gives 3 identical middle position single-coil tones, and 3 versions of "quack" sounds (position 2 and 4). There is no equivalent of the middle position Les Paul tone. But you can mod it fairly easily. The other drawback is the PRS custom pickups that prevent you from easily swapping pickups. Other than that, it has some beautiful warm dark tones, ballsey humbucker tones and sparkly single-coil tones, but not "spikey" like a strat. The neck is so comfortable, it feels great and is light at 7 pounds.
