PRS like to change things up every year which I think is very cool, slight additions, removals and changes to their guitar models etc. PRS have just announced the addition of six new translucent maple top colors to its US-made Core electric guitar and bass line: Aquableux, Blood Orange, Faded Whale Blue, Obsidian, Violet, and Leprechaun Tooth.
PRS President, Jack Higginbotham offers, “Tone, feel, and aesthetic are all fundamental to our quest as guitar makers. For almost thirty years, we have been known to make instruments that capture the eye as well as the ear. These new colors extend this legacy into our 2014 product line.”
“Our goal is to use colors that bring out the very best visually that the wood can offer, just like our pickups bring out sonically the very best the wood offer,” Higginbotham continues. Today, there are more than 70 color options offered through PRS’s Core and SE lines.
In addition to the new colors, PRS has updated the look of the 2014 US-made core guitar line headstocks by adding a rosewood veneer with an opulent-looking inlaid Paul Reed Smith signature.
