PRS 408 2012


Product Code: GS4315

$ 3,250.00

A beautiful Paul Reed Smith! The pickup system in the 408 is what sets it apart from other PRS models. The 408 has a pair humbuckers wired up with a volume, tone, and a 3-way blade switch with the addition of 2 mini-toggle switches (down = humbucking, up = single coil). When the single coil mode is engaged, the screw coil is disconnected and approximately 1500 turns are added to the slug coil so there is virtually no volume loss when you go from humbuckers to single coils.

This particular example is in excellent overall condition.
