The Experience PRS 2020 Modern Eagle V utilizes a hum/single/hum (five-coil) pickup configuration and introduces a new and unique switching system that gives players a vast array of tones in one guitar. The 5-way blade switch selects the pickups just as the 509 does (treble, treble and middle, middle, middle and bass, bass).
The two paired mini-toggles separate the slug-side coils, turning the hum- buckers into true, “TCI-tuned” single coils. There is a single volume and a push/pull tone control that activates both humbuckers when engaged; this allows players to access three pickups simultaneously.
Finally, there is a third mini-toggle that changes the volume pot value from 500k to 250k, which gives the guitar a different palette of tones. This electronics design puts a whole set of classic and new tones at your fingertips.
The Experience PRS 2020 Modern Eagle V will be available from a select group of Authorized PRS Dealers. 200 instruments will be made in two finishes: Charcoal and River Blue.
