1957/2008 Humbuckers Appear on New PRS Models

Two stunning new high-end guitar models – the Modern Eagle II and Al Di Meola Prism – are now available from Paul Reed Smith. Both feature the brand’s highly desirable new 1957/2008 humbucking pickups.

The Modern Eagle II builds on the illustrious reputation of its predecessor and features a premium grade curly maple top with mahogany back, 25” scale black rosewood neck (wide fat carve) and 22-fret fingerboard with beautiful green abalone and iridescent paua heart bird inlays.

With a high gloss nitro finish (in a choice of Faded Blue Jean, Charcoal, Yellow Tiger or Red Tiger colours), the Modern Eagle II is available with either a PRS tremolo or stop tailpiece and is fitted with hybrid gold/nickel hardware.

Al Di Meola’s new signature Prism guitar makes an immediate impression thanks to its unique ‘tie dye’ curly maple custom ‘9’ top. The stunning top is mated to a mahogany body and the guitar is completed by a 25” scale, 22 fret Mexican rosewood fingerboard, abalone bird inlays and tremolo bridge.

The Prism is the culmination of a more than 20 year relationship between Paul Reed Smith and Di Meola, who was one of the first artists to appear on a magazine cover with a PRS guitar.

Both instruments wear the classic/modern-sounding 1957/2008 humbuckers (the pickups are the result of PRS Guitars gaining the rights to the original pickup wire used in the most revered pickups of the 1950s) and harness these with simple volume, tone and three-way selector switch electronics.
