A new finish, a new neck, and Narrowfield pickups for more tonal flexibility.
PRS's new 22 fret, 25" scale length Studio model electric guitar is a fresh, modern rendition of a traditional single-single-hum guitar set up with the beauty and brightness of a maple 10-Top. The possibilities are vast with PRS's proprietary 57/08 Narrowfield pickups in the middle and bass positions in conjunction with a 57/08 humbucking bridge pickup. The Narrowfieldâ¢ pickups focus the string attack much like a single-coil but are hum canceling. The result is a new sounding pickup system, which blends features of single-coil, soap bar, and humbucking pickups. Screaming lead tones, crisp rhythm tones and 5-way blade switch with push/pull switching gives a coil-split humbucker tones that can be blended with Narrowfield pickups that enhance the flexibility of this guitar in the studio or on stage.
Other features include mahogany neck, V12 finish, rosewood fretboard, "pattern thin neck", 2011 birds, PRS tremolo bridge, PRS locking tuners, nickel or gold hardware, and redesigned lampshade knobs volume and push/pull tone controls.
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 Thin Neck Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of our quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The "Pattern Thin" neck is an updated version of PRS's traditional Wide Thin neck. This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows us to even more preciously shape and consistently reproduce our necks.
A fabulous professional's axe from one of the world's most respected luthiers. What's to think about? Order now.

Comments about PRS Studio 10-Top With Pattern Thin Neck Electric Guitar:
I remember those days prior to the Paul Reed Smith Guitar !!!
In the 1980's it was unheard of to buy a new guitar take it out of it's case, tune it up and play a gig. I don't care whose make guitar you bought, if it was brand new from the manufacturer you had to take it to a guitar tech to have the guitar caressed, tuned and modified before it was ready for professional use !!!
Then came Mr. Paul Reed Smith, His claim to fame?
You could buy any one of his guitars, remove it from it's case, tune it to pitch and play a professional gig without the guitar requiring any additional work before hand.
The PRS guitars are expensive, always have been!
PRS guitars are beautiful instruments, their craftsmanship is exquisite, they are wonderful to look at, they play without flaw and sound fantastic.
I believe that we owe it to Paul Reed Smith that today's guitars, in general, are so much better than the guitars that were being made in the 1970's and 1980's. He raised the bar for the entire guitar making industry !!!
