Paul Reed Smith "Fiore" Mark Lettieri Signature Model (Black Iris)
"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 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."
Paul Reed Smith continues to outdo themselves. This guitar, designed with the versatility of Mark Lettieri in mind, flows between genre stylings and voicing as if it was its sole purpose to seamlessly produce magnificence- no matter the obstacle. Shown here in its gorgeous Black Iris finish this guitar seems to beckon to you with the magnitude of a super-massive black hole. Give in to its event horizon and let the journey take hold of you- beauty awaits.
