Paul Reed Smith has been mastering the craft of guitar luthiery since 1975, since then his guitar's have been known for an artistic appearance, and tonal sophistication that has become a signature of the brand. PRS Guitars have become known for their signature bird inlays, figured wood tops, and of course for making custom guitars for the legendary Carlos Santana. PRS make a wide range of guitars that fit into many price ranges, and supply guitars for the likes of John Mayer, Mark Tremonti, and Mark Holcomb
The 513 is features 5 single coil pickups, the outer two sets grouped into humbucking pairs. This pickup design is unique to the 513 model, which was solely designed to give players more sounds in one guitar.
If you're a single coil player looking to add tonal range and options – this switching system may feel more at home to you. The added sounds come from a “master” 3-way mode switch that globally applies a tone to whatever 5-way position you're playing in.
The 513 has volume, tone, and a 5-way blade switch with the addition of a 3-way mode switch (heavy humbucking, clear humbucking, and single coils). In heavy humbucking mode, all 5 coils are at full output. In clear humbucking mode, all 5 coils are still engaged but at a lower output (approximately 65% of the full output). In single coil mode, 3 coils are engaged: the inside coil of the bridge, the middle, and the outside coil of the neck.
