Prestige Announces the Prestige Troubadour RS

The Troubadour RS will be the first new addition to Prestige's 2018 lineup and the next guitar to be launched in the Prestige Custom Series.

North Vancouver, BC (November 10, 2017) -- Prestige Guitars is proud to announce the “The Prestige Troubadour RS” – the Single Pickup counterpart to our successful “Troubadour” model, which launched in 2015. The Troubadour RS will be the first new addition to our 2018 lineup and the next guitar to be launched in our Prestige Custom Series, which features solid and semi-hollow body guitars with hot-rodded custom designs, finishes and components. Pre-Order on The Troubadour RS is now underway, with shipping expected in January 2018.

The Prestige Troubadour RS is a single cutaway solid body guitar, boasting a killer combo of solid 3⁄4” carved Canadian Maple top and solid mahogany body and neck. The guitar is finished with a satin/matte black top, with satin/matte stained mahogany sides, back and neck with cream 3 ply binding surrounding the body, and a cream bound neck and headstock. The guitar features an ebony fingerboard with clean, understated, offset mother of pearl dot inlays. The Troubadour RS will be loaded with your option of either the Seymour Duncan Pegasus Bridge pickup, or a Seymour Duncan Custom Shop ’78 Custom bridge pickup. Pickup will be direct mounted and exposed coil in Zebra (Cream/Black). Controls will include single nickel knurled volume and tone knobs with push pull coil split, and on-off toggle switch. Hardware is rounded out with all-nickel TonePros intonatable wraparound bridge and 18:1 Grover Sta-Tite open geared Tuners.

The Troubadour RS will be priced at $999 USD MAP, with the ’78 Custom Version at $1199 USD MAP.

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
