Paul Reed Smith
PRS Modern Eagle V McCarty Sunburst
New in the Core Line Up: The Modern Eagle V!
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 could only find the Modern Eagle in limited Wood Library or Private Stock versions, but that is now about to change.
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 at the same time. 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 crafted from 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 has been chosen: nice and sturdy and robust. Nice extra details are also the Hybrid Hardware and the Phase III locking tuners. Welcome to our PRS Wand, Modern Eagle V!
