A couple weeks ago a year or two of looking I picked up my first PRS, a beautiful Charcoal Burst 509. It’s just a fantastic guitar that tonality wise, achieves almost all classic tones in its own beautiful way. It’s a fantastic way to cover almost endless tonal territory without sacrificing a drop of tonal quality. However I looked for months and months before I ever knew this model existed. After checking them out I liked the way more than say a custom 24 because they weren’t flat. The 509 brings all sorts of harmonics that other guitars in the line simply don’t have. I think the 509 would solve the complaint many people have about PRSs sounding flat. Why don’t people talk more about them and why haven’t they gained popularity? Their only downside is the weird pickup style but who’s going to buy a $4000 guitar and change the most important part of its tone.
