PRS Guitars’ highly-praised 59/09 and 53/10 humbuckers will be available for purchase in the UK from autumn 2012. Until now, both models have been available only on PRS Guitars instruments.
Introduced in 2009, the uncovered 59/09 treble and bass pickups are articulate while still providing rich harmonic overtones. With a powerful bridge pickup and sweet, bright neck unit, the pair combine to delivery clarity and definition with a punch. The 59/09 are compatible with both five-way blade and five-way rotary switches.
The 53/10 pickups were inspired by the tone of single-coil guitars from the 50s and are the warmest-sounding of PRS’s vintage-themed pickup family. With a sweet high end and warm, smooth bass, the 53/10s have scuffed nickel covers for a perfect vintage look. The pickups are compatible with toggle switches and push/pull tone pots.
The 59/09 and 53/10 pickups carry a retail price of £159 each and will be available to purchase from www.headlinemusic.co.uk and PRS Guitars dealers nationwide.
