To know Paul Reed Smith is to know a man who is always pushing the proverbial envelope. His persistent desire to explore and discover is a huge part of PRS Guitars. So, when Paul and the R&D team ramped up their dissection and testing of pickups a couple years ago, it became very clear very quickly that something new was about to be born. Enter PRS 58/15 and 85/15 pickups – both introduced for PRS’s 30th Anniversary year. This limited run is a culmination of various features from the Custom 24 over the past 30 years and built around the more vintage-voiced 58/15 pickups, which have exceptional clarity and focused midrange. Paul describes them as, “very consistent, ‘best-of’ PAF-style pickups.” Other unique appointments on these instruments include solid shell birds, similar to those found on Paul’s Pre-Factory and the early production guitars, fretboard binding, a preview of our new headstock signature inlay and the Gen III PRS patented tremolo. The 58/15 limited run will total 150 pieces worldwide: 50 of each color, 25 of each color having a Pattern Regular neck carve with Solid Shell “Blue Purple” Red Abalone Bird inlays and 25 having a Pattern Thin neck carve with Solid Shell “Dark Special” Red Abalone Bird inlays.
