PRS 509 Artist Package 2020 – Faded Whale Blue – $8,699
2020 Paul Reed Smith (PRS) 509 Artist Package – Faded Whale Blue. An absolute stunner with one of the most incredible flame maple tops I’ve ever seen!
As one of the most versatile guitars in the PRS lineup, the 509 harnesses the power of 5 pickups to deliver 9 uniquely musical tones. The 509 starts with a 5 single coil platform – with the outside four coils grouped as humbuckers. An innovative switching system (a 5-way blade switch and two mini-toggle coil-tap switches), gives players an array of humbucking, singlecoil, and blended tones.
Unique appointments include a longer 25.25″ scale length which adds upper harmonic sparkle and the PRS Gen III Patented Tremolo which provides impressive sustain.
For 2020, PRS has updated this model with a nitro over cellulose (CAB) finish.
