509

509

As one of the most versatile guitars in the PRS lineup, the 509 harnesses the power of 5 pickups to deliver 9 uniquely musical tones. The 509 starts with a 5 single coil platform - with the outside four coils grouped as humbuckers. An innovative switching system (a 5-way blade switch and two mini-toggle coil-tap switches), gives players an array of humbucking, singlecoil, and blended tones.

Unique appointments include a longer 25.25” scale length which adds upper harmonic sparkle and the PRS Gen III Patented Tremolo which provides impressive sustain.

Accolades

"The humbucker in neck position has a warm bluesy, jazzy tone and the bridge humbucker has a great punch and sustain for lead stuff! I like having the 2 toggle switches to boost the 4 other tones that you get out of this. I'm also a 513 player but this is easier in many applications to just go to what you need."

- Randy Bowland
