Hollowbody Headstock Fix!

<p>Hollowbody Headstock Repair</p>

This lovely green Hollowbody II showed up to our PTC center in need of some tender loving care. Unfortunately, the guitar landed on its headstock in the middle of an epic jam-session.  This posed no threat to our PTC guys, they had her fixed up in no time. In a fortunate turn of events, this Hollowbody will live to shred another solo.

Good work, guys! If you would like to learn more about our PTC department, or send your own PRS in for repair, click HERE.

NF3 Gets New Pickups, New Floyd, New Life!

<p>PTC Job on NF3</p>

This guitar was sent to our PRS Tech Center (PTC) as a NF3 fitted with the standard three “Narrowfield” pickups.  The owner was ready for a change so he sent it in to our talented guys here at PRS for some new life.

We were able to remove the middle pick-up, re-route the body to fit a larger 59/09 pickup, re-route the body to fit a Floyd Rose tremolo, and finally tie it all together with a new pick guard.  It may sound easy, but our tech center worked hard to preform quality work while preserving the tone and resonance expected of this caliber of an instrument.

We love fades, bursts, solid tops, glows, you name it.  All of that gets done here in the base coat and top coat departments.

After paint is applied, a team of employees meticulously inspects every instrument.  Even the smallest abnormality will not go uncorrected.

We take pride in our instruments so that when its finally in your hands, you can too.
