“All guitarists have a sound in their head – a sound that evolves and grows as
they progress, discovering all of the beautiful idiosyncrasies that define their
individual voice. To facilitate this process, players need a vibrant, dynamic
guitar that becomes a free space in which their personality can unfold. PRS
and I designed Fiore (Italian for ‘flower’) to be this guitar.” – Mark Lettieri
The PRS Fiore model continues PRS Guitars’ journey into the bolt-on, single-coil
guitar world. Developed with guitarist, composer, producer, and instructor Mark
Lettieri, the PRS Fiore offers a modern aesthetic, effortless playability, and an
addictive and sophisticated tonal canvas.
The newly-designed PRS Fiore pickups were carefully voiced by Lettieri and
PRS to allow players a platform to explore and find their voice. The Fiore-S
single coil offers exceptional malleability in tone. Capable of capturing all the
articulation found in everything from whisper-quiet melodies to full on funk
and rock explosivity, this pickup reacts to each players unique approach.
The Fiore-H humbucker fulfills Lettieri’s desire for extensive versatility in the
bridge position: enough power and punch for high-gain lead tones, but with
a smooth top end that allows the pickup to be played clean, even with the
volume knob wide open. Both the Fiore-S and -H work seamlessly together,
producing balance, clarity, and that elusive ‘bloom’ in all five positions.
But the tone exploration doesn’t stop there. The Fiore model features a 5-way
blade switch with traditional wiring (bridge/bridge + middle/middle/middle
+ neck/neck). The Fiore also features a single volume and two push/pull tone
controls, which further adds to this guitar’s tone-shaping abilities.
Lettieri brought several personal design choices to this model, including a
custom truss rod cover drawn by his very own mom. Other appointments
include a Swamp Ash body, 22 fret maple neck with maple fretboard, and
25.5” scale length for classic look and feel.
