Paul Reed Smith 513 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Five ingenious pickups, 13 amazing modern and vintage guitar tones
The single biggest thing to put the PRS 513 on the map was its extremely clever pickup system, which gives you a huge range of tone. At first glance, this 513 appears to have a standard H/S/H pickup configuration, but those humbuckers are actually independent, side-by-side single-coil pickups. Thanks to the 513's flexible pickup-switching electronics, you can set these pickups as single-coils, clear humbuckers, or heavy humbuckers - giving you a total of 13 distinct pickup configurations in all. Take it from Sweetwater's guitar experts - the PRS 513 has the tones you need for any gig. Whether you want bright vintage single-coil sounds, rich modern humbucker tones, or anything in between, this PRS 513 is your go-to guitar.
Pattern Regular-profile neck feels great and plays smoothly
The PRS 513 gives you a Pattern Regular-profile mahogany neck fitted with a rosewood fretboard. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern Regular neck carve is based on Paul Reed Smith's original, pre-factory neck design - the same one used on instruments he built in the late '80s at PRS's Virginia Avenue location. You'll love the playability and feel of the PRS 513 electric guitar!
PRS V12 finish feels like nitro and protects like acrylic
The PRS 513 electric guitar is protected by a stunning PRS V12 finish. If you're seeking vintage vibe with a sophisticated edge, then your search ends here. Over a decade in the making, PRS's V12 finish blends the thin, resonance-enhancing characteristics of a nitro finish with the non-cracking reliability you expect from a modern acrylic finish. It has a classic feel all its own, and it makes your 513 feel like a well-worn instrument - one that will stay flawless-looking for years to come.
