Paul Reed Smith PRS Artist Package 408 Flame Maple Top Brazilian Rosewood Board Solana Smokeburst

Versatile and Articulate

PRS is proud to offer the 408. These inspiring instruments bring the versatility and voicing of previously Limited Edition instruments to PRS’s Core line.

PRS 408 pickups were designed to extend 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 (hence their asymmetric appearance). This pickup configuration (comprised of four coils and offering eight sounds) stems back to Paul’s experimentation on the Sorcerer’s Apprentice guitars in the early 1980’s. Thanks to the simple but versatile switching system featuring mini-toggle switches that provide numerous combinations of humbucking and singlecoil tones, the 408 provides stunning articulation and musical clarity.

PRS Artist Package – What Is It?

PRS Artist Package are instruments that boast a multitude of upgraded woods – artist grade maple top, select mahogany back, artist grade fretboard and an artist grade veneer on the headstock. You’ll also get an artist grade case and hardware. The series offers enhancements on existing models so if you’ve always fancied a PRS Custom 24, for example, but want to treat yourself to something extra special, then you can upgrade to one with an Artist Pack specification.
