Paul Reed Smith PRS Core Series 509 HSH Mahogany Body & Neck Rosewood Fingerboard Charcoal

Core Electrics

Since 1985 we’ve aimed to push musicians’ expectations of what a guitar can be. USA-Made modern, vintage, and specialty stylings, each model built to our exacting specifications to feel right in your hands & sound great to your ears.


As one of the most versatile guitars in the PRS lineup, the 509 harnesses the power of 5 pickups to deliver 9 uniquely musical tones. The 509 starts with a 5 single coil platform - with the outside four coils grouped as humbuckers. An innovative switching system (a 5-way blade switch and two mini toggle coil-tap switches), gives players an array of humbucking, singlecoil, and blended tones.

Unique appointments include a longer 25.25” scale length which adds upper harmonic sparkle and the PRS Patented Tremolo, Gen III which provides impressive sustain.

  • PRS Patented Tremolo, Machined

Meticulous design delivering sonic fidelity, player ergonomics, and revolutionary tuning stability.

  • PRS Phase III Locking Tuners

Modern locking technology with vintage elegance, these tuners promote tone transfer for a louder, more resonant instrument.

  • PRS 509 Pickups

Versatile pickup system offering a multitude of single coil and humbucking tones across its nine switching combinations.
