Introducing the PRS NF 53 Electric Guitar, a modern bolt-on instrument that pays homage to the past. Available exclusively at Irvine Art and Music, this guitar combines classic design with contemporary features to deliver a powerful and versatile playing experience.
A Fusion of Classic and Modern
The PRS NF 53 draws inspiration from a vintage '53 model in Paul Reed Smith's personal collection. Crafted from a resonant slab of swamp ash, this solidbody electric guitar features a sleek cutaway for enhanced comfort. The maple Pattern 53-shaped neck provides a familiar feel, perfectly complemented by the maple fingerboard with a 10-inch radius, 22 frets, and a 25.5-inch scale length. Prepare to be captivated by the NF 53's focused and powerful tone, thanks to the PRS Narrowfield DD pickups. With top-notch hardware, including a PRS plate-style bridge, barrel-style saddles, and vintage-style locking tuners, this guitar ensures exceptional performance. And of course, the iconic PRS Birds fingerboard inlays leave no doubt that the NF 53 is an authentic PRS creation. With its blend of vintage charm and modern versatility, the Paul Reed Smith NF 53 is destined to become a timeless classic.
A Solid and Reliable Performer
The NF 53 is a no-frills, no-nonsense rock machine. Its single-cut swamp ash body, bolt-on maple neck, and fingerboard deliver the tried-and-tested formula of classic guitars. However, the graceful cutaway scoop, comfortable neck carve, and fingerboard radius propel it into the twenty-first century, offering enhanced playability and speed. The plate-style bridge ensures precise intonation while paying homage to its roots. Additionally, the NF 53 features locking tuners, providing maximum reliability and effortless string changes.
Powerful PRS Narrowfield DD Pickups
Equipped with PRS Narrowfield DD (Deep Dish) pickups, the NF 53 delivers a versatile range of tones. These pickups combine the best characteristics of a humbucker, P-90, traditional single-coil, and mini humbucker. The taller bobbins and additional metal pieces between the magnets create a more focused and powerful tone compared to previous Narrowfields. With volume and tone knobs, as well as a 3-way blade switch, you have access to a full spectrum of classic tones.
The NF 53 has been praised by guitarists for its exceptional playability. The 25.5-inch scale length offers a familiar feel favored by hard rock enthusiasts. The Pattern 53-shaped neck strikes a perfect balance, providing a substantial grip while staying out of your way. The 22-fret, 10-inch-radius fingerboard enables seamless transitions between jazz chords, rock riffs, and lightning-fast leads.
