Experience PRS 2010
ABOVE: The DC3 is similar to the NF3 but features
the company’s DC3 single-coils, which are based
on the pickups in the PRS 513.
BELOW: This vintage-inspired, 25"-scale double-cutaway pays
homage to Ted McCarty. It has an “artist grade” maple top,
a mahogany back and neck, and comes with 57/08 pickups.
It also has a rosewood fretboard and the new Pattern neck
shape, which is an update on the PRS “wide-fat” neck
that’s based on Smith’s pre-factory guitars.

with a 24. 5" scale length. It features an “artist

cocobolo headstock overlay.
