PRS Paul's Guitar 10-Top - Black Gold Burst
*We do all our own photography. The guitar pictured is the exact one you will receive!
Holy 10-Top Batman! This Paul's Guitar is insane! Sometimes when you spec out a guitar, everything just comes together perfectly. This one features one of the nicest 10-tops that we've seen - It's got some super wide flame! The Honduran Rosewood fretboard and headcap has some incredibly cool figuring to it too! Sound wise, the new TCI pickups are some of our favorites and are super versatile. They sound great on their own, but when combined with the individual coil taps there really isn't a sound you can't get from this guitar. Also, it resonates and sustains for days, and it's great weight at under 7lbs. This one is crazy light for a core model PRS! We've had a lot of nice PRS core models come through our shop, and this one just might take the cake. Please let us know if you have any questions!

“I don’t just like the newest version of my guitar, I love it. With these new pickups, I can move from a strong bridge pickup to a very clear, “whoopy” neck pickup – you can hear every note – by just setting the mini-toggles and using the 3-way as normal. It’s a highly musical and very usable setup. This guitar has clear, spanky single coils when you split the pickups but a very full soapbar quality when they are in humbucking mode. It’s just beautiful.” - Paul Reed Smith
Historically, the Paul’s Guitar (like the Modern Eagle before it) has been a realization of Paul Reed Smith’s latest discoveries surrounding tone. Paul specified every appointment of this instrument from the wood selection and inlay design to the pickups. This revamped model represents Paul’s vision not only as a guitar maker but as a guitar player who needs versatile stage- and studio-ready gear that can achieve all the right tones. As a man who has every option available to him, Paul’s personal design choices include mahogany bodies with maple tops, Honduran rosewood fretboards, Nitrocellulose finishes, “Brushstroke” bird inlays, and narrow pickup bobbins. The Paul’s Guitar model also includes PRS’s TCI (Tuned Capacitance and Inductance) treble and bass pickups with two mini-toggle switches that allow players to put either or both pickups in either humbucking or true single coil mode. For 2020, PRS has updated this model with nitro over celluose (CAB) finish.
