PRS have released 40 limited edition “Swamp Ash Studio Multi-Foil” guitars for Experience PRS 2012. The Swamp Ash Studio is an updated take on a single-single-hum guitar with PRS’s proprietary Narrowfield pickups in the middle and bass positions and a 57/08 humbucker treble pickup. The swamp ash body provides clear bell-like highs, pronounced mids, and strong lows, and the bolt-on neck is lightly sealed for a natural, comfortable feel. For the nostalgia, the tone, and just because they look cool, these guitars are not to be missed.

In 1985, PRS made a small number of guitars with painted pinstripes dubbed “metal guitars.” The second generation in this theme, made in the later 1980’s, used a metallic color coat and was dubbed “Multi-Metal.” While the finish was still wet, it was blotted with a latex glove to give the guitars a more textured and interesting finish. These guitars are a notable part of PRS history.
