PRS 513 - Tiger Orange. Signed cover!

« back

This particular guitar is the last 513 to be shipped to Europe before the 408 'took it's place' and comes with a control cover signed by Paul Reed Smith himself!

One of PRS's most versatile instruments, the 513 stands for five pickups and 13 sounds. This is achieved with a easy-to-use integrated electronics control package which includes volume control, tone control and two blade switches. One blade switch is used as a 5-way pickup selector, and the other is a 3-way mode switch which allows the player to select between the single-coils, clear humbucking and heavy humbucking modes.

The full humbucking sounds are home soil, throaty mid-rangey lead sounds or big crunch riffs and chords; the tapped humbucker sounds bring a little, clear humbucker tonality and really suit a lower-gained sound, more classic rock and blues. But it´s the single-coils that´ll really surprise.

There´s explosive twang from the bridge unit, elastic depth from the neck pickup and, bearing in mind the construction and materials of the 513, very useable funky Strat-like mixes. There´s a sparkle to the single-coil sounds that´s missing from previous attempts at getting single-coil sounds from humbuckers - by PRS included.

The middle single-coil initially seems a little lost but set up a mid-gained sound and it´s a good base to start your experimenting. Indeed the mixed sounds are some of the best, like the full humbucker neck mixed with the middle single-coil captures a powerful in-between tone that has accurate single-coil snap but with more grunt.
