"We wanted a 57/08™; to sound like a singlecoil, but the hum wasn't acceptable," Paul Reed Smith explains. "What we got was something that sounds like a humbucker, P90, singlecoil, and mini-humbucker – the best traits of all combined. We were ecstatic." Welcome to the world of Narrowfield®, the latest step in the evolution of sound. It's a new PRS format that uses the same wire as 57/08s®, but squeezes the width of the pickup from pole to pole and goes deeper. Looking for exceptional clarity? You found it. Yearning to hear that full-on pick attack? We've got you covered.
Narrowfield® pickups are currently available on the models below:
