PRS launch new 513 model with 5 single coil pickups 29/07/04
5 pickups and 13 sounds
Paul Reed Smith Guitars launched the model 513 Rosewood at the summer NAMM show, the number 513 coming from the fact that the guitar has 5 pickups and 13 sounds.
The guitar features a newly developed patent applied for PRS pickup system that provides 13 modern and vintage sounds utilising five proprietary single coil pickups that are selected with two blade switches - one 3-way and one 5-way. Using these, a complete array of single coil and humbucker tones are possible.
