The spellbinding Fiore model continues PRS Guitars’ journey into the traditional world of bolt-on, single-coil guitar design. Created in collaboration with 3-time Grammy Award-winning guitarist and instructor Mark Lettieri — the PRS Fiore is an ultra-versatile instrument that offers a modern aesthetic, effortless playability, and a sophisticated tonal canvas via its flexible HSS pickup configuration.
Developed with Mark Lettieri
Lettieri had plenty of personal input when developing the Fiore, to ensure that it met his exacting standards. Heck — it even boasts a custom truss rod cover drawn by his mom! Key appointments include a smooth 2-point steel tremolo, sustain-rich Swamp Ash body, super-comfortable 22-fret maple neck and a 25.5” scale length that achieves a snappy note response.
In Mark Lettieri's own words: “All guitarists have a sound in their head – a sound that evolves and grows as they progress, discovering all of the beautiful idiosyncrasies that define their individual voice. To facilitate this process, players need a vibrant, dynamic guitar that becomes a free space in which their personality can unfold. PRS and I designed Fiore (Italian for ‘flower’) to be this guitar.”
PRS Fiore Pickups
The PRS Fiore comes equipped with a set of newly-designed pickups that were carefully-voiced by Lettieri and Paul Reed Smith — to provide players with a versatile platform to discover their own voice. The Fiore-S single-coils deliver exceptional clarity and are capable of capturing all the articulation found in everything from whisper-quiet melodies to full-on funk and rock explosivity!
In the treble position, you'll find the Fiore-H humbucker — projecting enough power and punch for high-gain lead tones, but with a smooth top-end that allows the pickup to be played clean even with the volume knob maxed out. The Fiore's pickups work together in perfect harmony; providing balance and that elusive "bloom" — no matter what the amp settings are.
To make the most of its generous pickup palette, the PRS Fiore sports a 5-way blade switch with traditional wiring — opening up a wide selection of sonic possibilities. The Fiore also features a single volume control and two push/pull tone knobs, which further add to its impressive tone-shaping abilities.
