United States
English
The “Stripped” 58 is a no-frills American-made guitar for short-scale, singlecut players. Made by PRS Guitars in Stevensville, Maryland, this vintage-inspired instrument delivers straightforward tone in a no-nonsense package.

Stevensville, MD, June 06, 2012 -- Originally offered as a limited run for Experience PRS 2011, the “Stripped” 58 is now available as part of Paul Reed Smith Guitars’ Core lineup. The “Stripped” 58 is a no-frills take on the company’s popular SC 58 model, which won the Musikmeese International Press Award (mipa) for “Best Electric Guitar 2011/2012” earlier this year, and maintains that instrument’s classic, resonant voice that is eminently recordable and gig ready.

The “Stripped” 58 is a vintage-inspired instrument that is perfect for more traditional single-cutaway style players and is also instantly comfortable to musicians who grew up playing short scale guitars. Specifications include a curly maple top (with 10-top option), mahogany back, 24.5” scale length, 22 fret mahogany “Pattern” neck with rosewood fretboard, dot inlays (with bird option), 57/08 treble and bass pickups with volume and tone control for each pickup and a 3-way toggle on the upper bout. This guitar also features PRS’s two piece bridge, which has added weight and mass, creating more contact points that, in turn, create a more resonant, musical instrument.

For straightforward tone and quality in an attractive, no-nonsense package, get your hands on a “Stripped” 58 today.
