Spectacular. A highly flamed 10 top that fades from a smoky inside to it's violet edge. This is one that stands out. PRS was playing around with colors when they made this guitar. Unique that it has a black back and neck that is offset by natural binding making the top stand out even more.
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.
