All guitarists have a sound in their head – a sound that evolves and grows as they progress and discover all the beautiful idiosyncrasies that make up their individual voice. To support this process, players need a vibrant, dynamic guitar that becomes a free space in which their personality can unfold. PRS and I designed the Fiore (Italian for ‘flower’) to be that guitar.” – Mark Lettieri
The PRS Fiore model continues PRS Guitars’ journey into the world of bolt-on single-coil guitars. Developed with guitarist, composer, producer and educator Mark Lettieri, the PRS Fiore offers a modern aesthetic, effortless playability and an addictive and sophisticated sound.
The PRS Fiore pickups have been carefully tuned by Lettieri and PRS to provide a platform for players to explore and find their voice. The Fiore-S Single Coil offers exceptional malleability in tone. Capable of capturing the full articulation from whispery melodies to funk and rock explosions, this pickup responds to each player’s unique approach.
The Fiore-H humbucker fulfills Lettieri’s desire for great versatility in the treble position: enough power and punch for high-gain lead sounds, but with a smooth top end that allows the pickup to be played cleanly even with the volume knob turned all the way up. Both the Fiore-S and the -H work seamlessly together to provide balance, clarity and the elusive “bloom” in all five positions.
But the sound research doesn’t stop there. The Fiore model has a 5-way blade switch with traditional wiring (bridge / bridge + middle / middle / middle + neck / neck). The Fiore also has a single volume control and two push/pull tone controls, which further expands the tonal possibilities of this guitar.
Lettieri has made some personal design decisions for this model, including a cover for the truss rod drawn by his own mother. Other features include a swamp ash body, a 22-fret maple neck with maple fingerboard and a 25.5-inch scale length for a classic look and feel.
