The 25th Anniversary Modern Eagle III takes all of the classic Modern Eagle features and combines them with Paul Reed Smith's contemporary designs. The blend of mahogany and rosewood tonewoods produces an exquisite sound and lets face it, it looks amazing. Shadow bird inlays, an anniversary headstock eagle, a bound rosewood fretboard, and a unique color palette. Added to the guitar are 3 cutting edge narrowfield pickups. These PRS passive pickups are based on 57/08 humbuckers that have been "squished" to create a smaller magnetic field that senses a much shorter piece of the string. The result is a very musical new-sounding pickup system that blends the sonic attributes of single-coil, soapbar, and humbucker pickups.
This is a used model dating back to 2009, yet the finish shows only light signs of use. One small impression to the side-bout and a few tiny nicks upon close scrutiny. It has acquired some natural ‘played in’ character, but essentially this is a clean instrument – Any other light signs of use that you might discover, are only evident under the reflection of the sun and are very minor. That being said, these are well illustrated on the pics so please take a good look.
