This guitar is being sold as a floor demo. It's in perfect cosmetic shape but it spent a couple weeks out on loan with a local customer so we are reducing the price on it. The guitar is fully functioning and includes its full manufacturers warranty.
Like all PRS guitars, the construction and design of this guitar are superb. The traditional Strat style body shape is comfortable and lightweight (7 lbs even). The Horizon finish is quite striking and is a more sultry looking shade of Candy Apple Red.
The 635JM single-coil pickups are very round and full, with a musical high end that is never “ice-picky” or brash. I found they lean more towards a modern tone than a typical vintage tone you will find on Fenders. The bridge pickup has a good bite and with a nice mid-range grit. The neck pickup is dynamic with a nice clear low end, sweet highs and a well-balanced midrange. The 2 and 4 positions have a nice moderate quack that works well for soloing.
The maple neck features a rosewood fretboard with birds inlays, a 7.25" radius and was modeled after 63/64 vintage Strats. It is nicely shaped with just the right amount of thickness. If you are used to a 9.5" radius you might find this neck will take a little getting used to.
Other high-quality specifications include a bone nut, a molded metal jack plate that is curved and makes plugging and unplugging a guitar cable hassle-free, retooled knobs, fret wire that is slightly smaller than what you’d find on most PRS electric guitars, and PRS’s double action truss rod (accessible from the front of the headstock for ease of use).
