The PRS NF 53: A Modern Take on Classic Tones

The PRS NF 53 guitar is a testament to the marriage of vintage aesthetics and modern craftsmanship. Inspired by a 1953 vintage guitar owned by Paul Reed Smith himself, this instrument blends timeless tones with contemporary design. Crafted with a solid swamp ash body and a 22-fret, 25.5-inch scale length bolt-on maple neck featuring a maple fretboard, the PRS NF 53 embodies the essence of classic guitar construction.

Powerful Narrowfield Pickups

What sets the PRS NF 53 apart are its PRS Narrowfield DD (Deep Dish) pickups. These specially designed pickups feature taller bobbins, accommodating more winds, and additional metal pieces between the magnets for a focused and powerful tone. The result is a dynamic and versatile sonic palette that captures the essence of vintage guitars while adding a modern twist.

Precision and Versatility

Equipped with a volume and tone control and a 3-way blade pickup switch, the NF 53 offers players the ability to fine-tune their sound effortlessly. The steel plate-style bridge, PRS vintage-style tuners, and nickel hardware collaborate to deliver impeccable tuning stability, enhancing sustain, and ensuring that the guitar produces a powerful and reliable tone.
