About the original PRS DC 3



This PRS DC3 is a strat on steroids.The single coil pickups are hot, full and punchy. All 5 pickup selections are excellent.Guitar sounded great through both the clean and dirty channels. The bridge pickup is big and full. Has a lot more beef than the typical single coil you would find on a strat.Featuring a flat alder body, bolt-on neck, steel bridge components, and three proprietary PRS single coil pickups based on PRS’s award-winning 513 model platform, the DC3 has a warm, vintage tone and loads of modern appeal. The steel components in the bridge retain the balanced resonance of the alder and provide a clear, but expansive tone, and the three-pickup configuration combined with a 5-way blade pickup selector offers ample switching possibilities. You’ve got to hear this guitar.

Dtails of the PRS DC 3



The DC3 incorporates the following new features:

V12 Finish
Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood's inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars' new "V12" finish does just that. Introduced at Experience PRS 2010, "V12" is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. "PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments," said Paul Reed Smith.




Pattern Regular Neck Shape

Neck shapes have always been a high priority for PRS and a hallmark of their quality. A guitar should feel comfortable, like "home," as soon as you pick it up, and the neck is paramount to that connection. The new "Pattern Regular" neck shape is similar to the traditional PRS regular neck found on guitars made in the late 80's at PRS's former Virginia Avenue location.



This new neck shape reflects modern tooling and programming that allows PRS to even more preciously shape and consistently reproduce their necks.


The pictures below are parts of the original guitar ,you can clear see these parts.




What’s more ,it is worth mentioning that the hardware and pickups we select are Wilkinsons. But they are more attractive in quality and price, saving much money for our customers. Most of our customers reflected the Wilkinson are beyond their imagination- stable and reliable enough!
