Product Description

Stunning articulation and musical clarity, the 408 Gen III is one of the most gorgeous guitars in the PRS Core line up. 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 single coil tones.

GEN III Tremolo
Rest assured, the Gen III trem functions in all the same ways as the PRS patented tremolo system always has. As always, the bridge is machined brass, a metal that rings beautifully. The block, intonation screws, height-adjustment screws, and the string slots on the saddles are all left un-plated for increased sustain and fidelity of tone.

The most versatile guitar I’ve ever played. Played my whole show without having to switch guitars, I know switch switches. Went from 3 guitars to 1. Love it. And I got it as a gag because I thought I wasn’t gonna be impressed. Man was I wrong.

Incredible PRS Guitar definitely worth the money!!!

Product Review

The PRS 408 is a thing of beauty to behold and play. I was at first hesitant getting the 408, however after spending some time with her, she is now my favorite guitar. The tones you get out of it are amazing, single coil, dual coil and more. I am very impressed and with American Musical's payment plan they made it affordable. If you considering this guitar, just do it, you won't be sorry.

Product Review

I've been playing for 50 years. I'm no different than anybody else . Searching for that perfect guitar. Neck, frets, pickups, etc. You know the story. About six years ago I bought my first PRS. WOW ! It was everything that I've been looking for. I now own five of them. All are perfect. Period. This PRS 408 is no exception. It's perfect, too. If you are put off by the price... think about this. I spent over $50,000 buying and reselling all the OTHER GUITARS. You do the math. Spend that fifty, or spend four for perfect.

Versatility at its finest!

Product Review

Fit & finish are top notch. Playability, tone, aesthetics, are phenomenal. The 408 covers a lot of musical character. From Tele twang to a roaring Les Paul, to a snappy Strat. The coil taps are very useful and do not create a volume drop when engaged. A pleasure to play! Phase III tuners are stable and very fine for precise tuning. The Gen III trem is outstanding and very fluid and returns to zero point without the need to wiggle it, or bend any strings to get it in tune. If PRS made a 7 string version of the 408 I would definitely be looking to buy.
