Watch how a pair of new additions to the core line flex the versatility of a newly redesigned pickup.
PRS Narrowfield pickups are back in the Core line up for 2021 with two new models: the PRS Studio and PRS Special Semi-Hollow. PRS aficionados will recognize these pickups and models from previous years, but these guitars have been thoroughly reviewed from head to toe and now include all the latest PRS design specifications, including a nitro topcoat and TCI-tuned pickups. Narrowfield pickups were first introduced back in 2010. Designed to sense a shorter section of string, PRS Narrowfields deliver a thick single-coil sound, reminiscent of soapbar pickups, with the benefit of humbucking coils. The Studio model features a Narrowfield, Narrowfield, humbucker pickup layout with volume, push/pull tone, and 5-way pickup selector electronics controls. The Special Semi-Hollow features a hum/Narrowfield/hum pickup configuration with a volume, tone, 5-way blade switch electronics layout, plus two mini-toggle coil-tap switches that split the humbuckers for a total of twelve sounds.
