PRS 513 Swamp Ash Rosewood Fingerboard Natural
The 513, for one, has a bit of a longer scale length (25 ¼), a middle pickup, and a 5-way blade switch. If you’re a single coil player looking to add tonal range and options – this switching system may feel more at home to you. The added sounds come from a “master” 3-way mode switch that globally applies a tone to whatever 5-way position you’re playing in.
The 513 is composed of a series of 5 single coil pickups, the outer two sets grouped into humbucking pairs. This pickup design is unique to the 513 model, which was solely designed to give players more sounds in one guitar.
The 513 has volume, tone, and a 5-way blade switch with the addition of a 3-way mode switch (heavy humbucking, clear humbucking, and single coils). In heavy humbucking mode, all 5 coils are at full output. In clear humbucking mode, all 5 coils are still engaged but at a lower output (approximately 65% of the full output). In single coil mode, 3 coils are engaged: the inside coil of the bridge, the middle, and the outside coil of the neck.
Here are the sounds you can achieve with the 513:
Treble (heavy humbucking, clear humbucking, or single coil)
Treble (heavy humbucking, clear humbucking, or single coil) and middle single coil
Middle single coil
Middle and Bass (heavy humbucking, clear humbucking, or single coil)
Bass (heavy humbucking, clear humbucking, or single coil)
