At each PRS Experience open house event, PRS has produced a small number of special guitars as part of the celebration. Even though this year’s event was unable to happen as scheduled, PRS has been committed to bringing models that were planned for the event, as seen through the announcements of the SE Parlor acoustic line up and the SE Hollowbody II Piezo. PRS Guitars is especially pleased to introduce the Experience 2020 Modern Eagle V.
“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
The limited-edition Modern Eagle V is an innovative instrument that offers highly musical tones for both recording and playing live. Utilizing a hum/single/hum (five-coil) pickup configuration and introducing a new and unique switching system, the Modern Eagle V 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 humbuckers 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.
Lark Guitars is proud to be a part of a select group of Authorized PRS Dealers that will be allowed to offer a few of the limited 200 instruments. The Modern Eagle V will be made in two finishes: Charcoal and River Blue. Reserve yours now!
