The 408 is a unique instrument, bringing the the versatility of an acclaimed Limited Edition guitar to PRS' Core lineup. Following the iconic Custom 22/24 formula with its modern double-cut body shape and playable 25" scale length, the PRS 408 features a distinctive set of pickups that expand the instrument's tonal range for added flexibility.
Body & Neck
PRS' 408 boasts a Mahogany body, delivering a warm sound with plenty of harmonic richness in the mid-range. Adorned with a gorgeous Carved Figured Maple top, this guitar's beauty is guaranteed to inspire you to pick it up and play for hours on end!
Joining the body is a Mahogany neck carved to PRS' acclaimed "Pattern Regular" profile. Providing a natural and supportive feel, the neck is also topped with a silky smooth Rosewood fingerboard that offers a luxurious touch under the fingers.
The PRS 408's pickups are designed for ultimate expression. Extending the guitar’s tonal spectrum by narrowing the field of the bass pickup to increase its focus and widening the field of the treble pickup to increase its sound field, this pickup configuration hearkens back to sonic experiments that PRS' founder, Paul Reed Smith, carried out on a test guitar in the early '80s.
A flexible switching system gives you a wide tonal palette, allowing to get the best out of the amazing pickups. Sporting mini-toggle switches that offer numerous combinations of humbucking and single-coil tones, the 408 provides stunning articulation and musical clarity.
