PRS 408 Electric Guitar - Black Gold

Paul Reed Smith

The PRS 408 guitar pickups were designed to extend the guitar's tonal spectrum. The 408 pickups narrow the field of the bass pickup to increase its focus and widening the field of the treble pickup to increase its sound field (hence their asymmetric appearance). This pickup configuration (comprised of four coils and offering eight sounds) stems back to Paul's experimentation on the Sorcerer Apprentice guitars in the early 1980s.

Thanks to the simple but versatile switching system featuring mini-toggle switches that provide numerous combinations of humbucking and single coil tones, the 408 10 Top provides stunning articulation and musical clarity.
