PHIL HILBORNE’S ONE-MINUTE LICK

PRS launch Dustie War­ing gui­tar

Guitar Techniques - - Q&a -

A new ‘Dustie’ gui­tar might sound like a con­tra­dic­tion in terms but PRS ’s lat­est re­lease, the Dustie War­ing LE ‘Floyd’ Cus­tom 24 model (£3,995), is so named be­cause of its cre­ation in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dustie War­ing, rhythm gui­tarist with pro­gres­sive metal lu­mi­nar­ies Be­tween The Buried And Me. War­ing has been a PRS player since 2008 (usu­ally favour­ing a Cus­tom 24 out­fit­ted with Floyd Rose vi­brato sys­tem), and his new gui­tar is de­signed to look and sound even more vi­cious than his pre­vi­ous ma­chine.

The new Dustie War­ing LE in­cludes some unique fea­tures that War­ing spec­i­fied to make his per­fect PRS , in­clud­ing his sig­na­ture DiMarzio hum­buck­ing pick­ups. The units are de­signed to cover the spec­trum from pris­tine cleans to heavy rhythm chords with­out harsh tre­bles or mushy bot­tom end. Other fea­tures in­clude carved fig­ured maple top, ma­hogany back, 25” scale length, 24-fret rock maple neck, an “Orig­i­nal” Floyd Rose vi­brato, PRS Phase II lock­ing tuners, glow-in-the-dark side­dots, and PRS bird in­lays. Sport­ing black hard­ware and a satin fin­ish, th­ese guitars look as so­phis­ti­cated and men­ac­ing as they sound.

War­ing said of his new ‘Dustie’ gui­tar, “I can’t see my­self play­ing any­thing else now. They are per­fect in­stru­ments that you can get any tone you want out of, and they look ab­so­lutely badass.”
