PRS Modern Eagle V Carroll Blue (2024)


The popular all-rounder from PRS in a beautiful new Carroll Blue finish!

The Modern Eagle V has finally joined Paul Reed Smith's Core Line Up and that's cause for celebration. The Modern Eagle is one of the most coveted PRS models and we understand why; there are few guitars that are so progressive and innovative. For years you only found the Modern Eagle in limited Wood Library or Private Stock versions, but that is now changing.

The star of the Modern Eagle V-Show is the pickup switching. Thanks to the five-way switch and additional toggle switches, the sound possibilities are virtually endless. The five-way switch has an intuitive layout: you can switch between the bridge, bridge+middle, middle, middle+neck and neck pickup. The two toggle switches switch the 2 humbuckers to single coil and as icing on the cake, the tone control is equipped with a push-pull pot to switch on both humbuckers simultaneously. This means you can even enable all three elements at once!

Of course, the Modern Eagle V has much more to offer than smart pickup switching. As befits PRS, the body and neck are made of high-quality mahogany. And of course there's that amazing maple top, the trademark of every Core PRS! In terms of neck profile, the Pattern Profile was chosen: nice and sturdy and robust. Nice additional details are the Hybrid Hardware and the Phase III locking tuners. Welcome to our PRS Wall, Modern Eagle V!
