PRS Guitars - DC3

Featuring a flat alder body, bolt-on neck, steel bridge components, and three proprietary PRS single coil pickups based on PRS’s award-winning 513 model platform, the DC3 has a warm, vintage tone and loads of modern appeal. The steel components in the bridge retain the balanced resonance of the alder and provide a clear, but expansive tone, and the three-pickup configuration combined with a 5-way blade pickup selector offers ample switching possibilities. You’ve got to hear this guitar.

Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood’s inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars’ new “V12” finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, “V12” is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. “PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments,” said Paul Reed Smith.

Neck shapes have always been a high priority for us and a hallmark of our quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like “home,” as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The new “Pattern Regular” neck shape is similar to the traditional PRS regular neck found on guitars made in the late 80’s at PRS’s former Virginia Avenue location.

This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows us to even more precisely shape and consistently reproduce our necks.
