Watchtower Guitars is excited to announce our partnership with Paul Reed Smith Guitars is growing to new levels after NAMM 2020. We now have the best selection of Core, Bolt On, S2 and SE models in the tri-state area. In the next few months we'll be visiting the factory to spec out our first run of PRS Private Stock guitars as well. All of these guitars are available to be tested at our new location in Morristown NJ. Please contact us to make an appointment. Working with us at Watchtower Guitars is a full tone experience not just a transaction.

This model has the new for 2020 specs! For 2020, PRS has updated this model with TCI-tuned pickups and nitro over celluose (CAB) finish.
PRS is proud to offer the 408. These inspiring instruments bring the versatility and voicing of previously Limited Edition instruments to PRS’s Core line.
PRS 408 pickups were designed to extend the guitar’s tonal spectrum by narrowing the field of the bass pickup to increase its focus and widening the field of the treble pickup to increase its sound field (hence their asymmetric appearance). This pickup configuration (comprised of four coils and offering eight sounds) stems back to Paul’s experimentation on the Sorcerer’s Apprentice guitars in the early 1980’s. Thanks to the simple but versatile switching system featuring mini-toggle switches that provide numerous combinations of humbucking and singlecoil tones, the 408 provides stunning articulation and musical clarity.
