Experience PRS 2020 Modern Eagle V

Experience PRS 2020 Modern Eagle V

Specially appointed to commemorate the 2020 Experience PRS event, which was celebrated virtually in May, this limited-edition Modern Eagle V is an innovative instrument that offers highly musical tones for both recording and playing live.

The Experience PRS 2020 Modern Eagle V utilizes a hum/single/hum (five-coil) pickup configuration and introduces a new and unique switching system that gives players a vast array of tones in one guitar. The 5-way blade switch selects the pickups just as the 509 does (treble, treble and middle, middle, middle and bass, bass). The two paired mini-toggles separate the slug-side coils, turning the hum- buckers into true, “TCI-tuned” single coils. There is a single volume and a push/pull tone control that activates both humbuckers when engaged; this allows players to access three pickups simultaneously. Finally, there is a third mini-toggle that changes the volume pot value from 500k to 250k, which gives the guitar a different palette of tones. This electronics design puts a whole set of classic and new tones at your fingertips.

The Experience PRS 2020 Modern Eagle V will be available from a select group of Authorized PRS Dealers. 200 instruments will be made in two finishes: Charcoal and River Blue.

“While Experience PRS 2020 was unable to happen at the PRS Factory this year, it is important to us to still release the products we had planned to the guitar community. These Modern Eagle guitars are very sophisticated pieces of gear both electronically and mechanically. They are highly musical instruments.” Paul Reed Smith
