One Guitar, Many Tones
The PRS 408 10-Top solidbody electric guitar is a tonal chameleon that’s ready for any gig. Select tonewoods such as mahogany, maple, and rosewood combine to give you a great-looking guitar with tone to die for. The innovative 408 pickups offer warm humbucking tones and clear, glassy single-coil tones all in a single package. With the flick of a switch, you can send these flexible pickups into single-coil mode evoking the snappy, bell-like tones you need. The Pattern neck carve gives this guitar a great feel. The PRS 408 10-Top is a true workhorse guitar.
Solid mahogany topped with maple looks and sounds amazing
To give the 408 10-Top a rich yet balanced sound, PRS began by choosing the tried-and-true combination of mahogany topped with a select figured maple 10-Top. The 408 10-Top’s mahogany body gives you natural tonal warmth, which is offset perfectly by the brighter tone of its maple top. Together, these tonewoods give you an incredibly balanced sound.
Custom-wound 408 pickups and switching provide endless tone
When PRS released their Signature Limited model, everyone at Sweetwater who got a chance to check out the new 408 pickups was absolutely blown away. However, true to his perfectionist nature, Paul Reed Smith continued to tweak these 100% proprietary pickups to perfection. In fact, he discovered that by tightening up the pickup field on a 408 Bass pickup, he was actually able to create an even better-sounding treble pickup. The PRS 408 10-Top electric guitar features a pair of these amazing 408 pickups. But it doesn’t stop there; these amazing pickups also have dedicated mini switches, so you can shift to the timeless single-coil sound instantaneously. Best of all, there is no volume loss when switching to single-coil mode!
