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.

What is your opinion of this product?
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.
