1987: Wide Thin Neck Option Introduced

Wide Thin

Neck shapes are quintessential to the feel, comfort, and playability of a guitar. The introduction of the Wide Thin neck option in 1987 was PRS’s first step toward offering players a higher level of customization within the product line. The popular design sold well with shred-crazed metal and hard rock musicians. Those players felt the thinner neck allowed for faster movement on the fretboard. To this day, a variety of neck shapes are offered so that players can better find a guitar that feels “like home.”
