The Gibson RD guitars were introduced in 1977 and remained on the production line for only five years. They were routed through active electronics. The neck was glued in, in accordance with Gibson tradition, but was made to a 25.5-inch scale length, and carried a maple fingerboard. Body and neck were also both made of maple, all elements intended to contribute to a brighter, snappier tone. It was a clever and well-thought-out piece of guitar design, and won a few devoted fans, but fewer than 1,500 were sold in its three-year run. In response to heavy demand from collectors worldwide, Gibson USA has proudly resurrected this double-cut solidbody. With the same bright sound and innovative design, the Gibson RD's return is cause for celebration.

The Gibson RD Standard Reissue is a fantastic reissue that captures the unique vibe of this unusual electric guitar, but incorporates many of the tried and true features that Gibson fans have come to know and love. It features a "reversed" Firebird style solid mahogany body, a set mahogany neck with a rounded '50s shape, a 22-fret rosewood fretboard, and has the traditional 24-3/4" Gibson scale length.

PRS 2011 Custom 24 10-Top with Pattern Thin Neck

PRS 2011 Custom 24 10-Top with Pattern Thin Neck Electric Guitar Sapphire Smokeburst


PRS 2011 Custom 24 10-Top with Pattern Thin Neck Electric Guitar Sapphire Smokeburst


The Custom 24 is the original PRSthe guitar Paul Reed Smith took to his first tradeshow in 1985. A perennial favorite with musicians, this 10-Top model has been updated for 2011 with V12 finish, a Pattern Thin mahogany neck, and uncovered 59/09 pickups wired for the redesigned 5-way blade switch, which offers a dual humbucker option for the first time.

V12 Finish
Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.

Pattern Thin Neck Shape
Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of our quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The "Pattern Thin" neck is an updated version of PRS's traditional Wide Thin neck. This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows us to even more preciously shape and consistently reproduce our necks.

Neck-Through Construction
B.C. Rich is known as one of the pioneers in neck through construction. They use it on many of their guitars, because it provides the best possible sustain, resonance, comfort and access to higher frets. Neck-through has long been considered the premium construction method for high-end guitars. This construction starts with a long piece (or pieces) of premium North American maple. That piece runs from the tip of the headstock to the strap button on the opposite end of the guitar. This means that the headstock, fingerboard, pickups and bridge all are mounted to this single sound foundation. Sonically it is a difference you can hear. The neck-through construction also allows more of the body and neck to be cut away at the neck joint, which provides comfort no bolt-on or set-neck could offer. You will find the neck through feature on all top of the line B.C. Rich models.

EMG-81 (bridge position)
The EMG-81 is a high output pickup designed especially for the lead guitarist. The 81 is at its best for high volume overdrive and amps with a master volume. Whether you're playing power rock and roll, or overdriving your amp, there's a razor sharp attack, and incredible sustain for brilliant soloing. If you're looking for exceptional qualities in a rock pickup, the EMG-81 is the one.

EMG-60 (neck position)
While the EMG-60 humbucker still features the close aperture coils loaded with ceramic magnets for the brightest attack of any of EMG's many humbucking models, this pickup also packs plenty of output with both clarity and cut through high end. The EMG-60 guitar pickup is incredible for rhythm guitar as metal and extreme players have discovered.

PRS SC 58 Nickel Hardware Electric

PRS SC 58 Nickel Hardware Electric Guitar Black Gold


PRS SC 58 Nickel Hardware Electric Guitar Black Gold


A vintage-inspired singlecut with an artist-grade top, the SC 58 is perfect for more traditional single-cutaway players. The 24-1/2" scale length and electronics appointments make this instrument instantly comfortable to players who grew up using short-scale guitars. The PRS 2-piece bridge is the anchor of this guitar and enhances the natural tone of the woods.

2-Piece Adjustable Bridge
Previously only prototyped on Private Stock guitars, the new two-piece adjustable PRS bridge now comes standard on two new PRS models the SC58, and the JA-15. Bridge specifications include triple weight saddles, triple weight thumb wheels, large posts, and extra mass. The added weight increases contact points and creates a more resonant, musical instrument. Machining rather than casting give the brass and aluminum bridge a stronger sound, and the quick-change style stoptail doesnt fall when the strings are removed. I am calling it the New 2-piece adjustable sound transfer bridgeWe are very happy, said Paul Reed Smith.

With a classic, resonant voice that is eminently recordable and gig ready, this beauty won't just take everything you've got and keep asking for more, it will do it with unforgettable sound and style.

The SC 58 also incorporates the following new features:
