59/09 Limited Edition 2009 Experience Guitar - Black Slate

Each September, at the PRS Experience, something new and cool is released to PRS die-hards to commemmorate the event. Typically, a special limited edition guitar is introduced, embodying the culmination of all of PRS' expertise in guitar design. Often, the guitars will introduce new technologies or designs.


In 2009, the "5909" pikcup series was introduced. Following on the heels of the wildly popular "5708" pickups from the prior year, the 5909s are made using the same vintage wire used to make the classic PAF style pickups from the 1950's. Voiced differenly than the 5708 with an emphasis on clarity, the pickups in this extraordinary instrument excel with tonal complexity and note definition. 


The top is an amazing one-piece private stock grade quilt maple, finished in satin nitrocellulose.
