A versatile modern classic with a new finish, neck shape, and tremolo.

Named after its versatile pickup configuration (3 pickups paired with a 5-way blade switch), the NF3 utilizes the modern pickup technology of PRS Narrowfield pickups. Narrowfields use the same wire as PRS' coveted 57/08 pickups, but are narrower pole to pole and deeper front to back. The result is a new-sounding pickup system with exceptional clarity. Paired with a "pattern regular" bolt-on neck and flat body design, the NF3 is a modern classic.

The NF3 incorporates the following new features:

V12 Finish
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 Neck Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of their 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 '80s at PRS' 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.

PRS Tremolo with Steel Components
The bridge plays a crucial role in the tone of a guitar by transferring the string's vibrations to the tonewood. When executed well, the bridge will enhance the wood's natural resonance. The PRS Tremolo with steel components offers a clear, expansive tone that sounds especially pleasing in guitars with single-coils. Includes case.

    Comments about PRS NF3 Maple Neck Electric Guitar:

    The guitar has a ground loop noise, and is advertised as dead quiet, the end of frets has unfilled gaps, all of this unacceptable in a guitar of this price.
    I emailed PRS and they suggest to check the cable that goes to the tremolo, everything is connected but still the noise.
    If you can live will these problems paying that much, this is a phenomenal guitar.
    I sent it back and waiting for the new one to see if it's the same quality or better.

    PRS NF3 - Looks Great, Plays Great - Sloppy Fret Gaps

    By UberschallEL34

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about PRS NF3 Maple Neck Electric Guitar:

    Nice playing guitar, nice sound but let down by fret install
    Great features, pickups sound like a mix of single coil, mini hum and P-90
    There were multiple gaps where the fret tangs install against the fretboard that made me think for this price guitar that's unacceptable.
    Overall nice guitar, not sure if gaps are more noticable on maple board (what I ordered) compared to the rosewood board. But I think in this pricepoint they would have used filler to diminish the appearance of the gaps or had better slots cut for frets.
