The Dustie Waring signature CE is the perfect blend of PRS precision, rock n' roll attitude and a modern shredders dream.
It's got a stunning Maple board and bolt-on Maple neck which gives it that extra snap and brightness needed to cut through the mix. And when combined with his powerful signature Mojotone pickups you get a guitar that can handle anything from crystal clean to punishing heavy metal.
Between The Buried And Me create some stunning soundscapes interspersed with heavy brutal riffs and so Dustie needed a guitar that could do both within the same song! He's been a long time PRS user and his custom neck carve is flat and fast meaning you can easily nail those shred-runs. The Floyd-Rose finishes of a guitar built for speed and power.
The 5-way toggle switch will give you access to some in-between sounds should you need to thin out the humbuckers otherwise you'll get all of the gain and power from the bridge and neck humbuckers.
Here's what PRS say about the Dustie Waring CE
"I've always thought CE's were really great guitars, and I couldn't be happier with this signature model. It can get pretty much any sound you want it to, it's super comfortable to play, and it's just cool to see a CE with a maple board and a Floyd. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do." - Dustie Waring / Between the Buried and Me
The progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me has a sound that is both heavy and melodic, lush and menacing. It is this demand for versatility without sacrifice that led to the development of guitarist Dustie Waring’s latest PRS signature model: the DW CE 24 “Floyd.” This model starts with the PRS CE bolt-on platform and includes a satin-finished maple neck, maple fretboard, a slightly modified Pattern Thin neck carve (Waring’s carve is slightly thinner front to back), and Floyd Rose tremolo system.
The pickups and electronics are also unique to Waring’s signature axe. The pickups are Waring’s signature Mojotone “DW Tomahawk” pickups. Made with a blend of Ceramic and Alnico magnets and a special winding technique, DW Tomahawks have plenty of output and big bottom end while remaining articulate and clear - a unique quality for high gain pickups. Paired with a volume and tone control and 5-way blade pickup selector that have been shifted slightly to allow plenty of room to work the tremolo, the DW CE 24 “Floyd” is comfortable, fun, and inspiring to play.
The DW CE 24 “Floyd” comes with satin black hardware and is available in either Gray Black or Waring Burst.
