New PRS Stripped 58
Originally offered as a limited run for Experience PRS 2011, the “Stripped” 58 is now available as part of the PRS Core lineup.
The “Stripped” 58 is described as a no-frills take on the company’s SC 58 model, which won the Musikmesse International Press Award (mipa) for “Best Electric Guitar 2011/2012” earlier this year.
The “Stripped” 58 is a vintage-inspired instrument that is suited for more traditional single-cutaway style players and is also designed to be comfortable for musicians who grew up playing short scale guitars.
Specifications include a curly maple top (with 10-top option), mahogany back, 24.5” scale length, 22 fret mahogany “Pattern” neck with rosewood fretboard, dot inlays (with bird option), 57/08 treble and bass pickups with volume and tone control for each pickup and a 3-way toggle on the upper bout. This guitar also features PRS’s two piece bridge, which has added weight and mass, creating more contact points that, in turn, create a more resonant, musical instrument, according to the company.

- Of Polepieces and Magnetic Fields It occurred to me that for all the tweaking guitarists do with their tone — rolling tone controls up and down on both their guitars and amps — very few ever touch the pickups. Most guitarists I know don’t even look at the pickups and wouldn’t know if they were out of alignment even if they did.
