Today we are featuring an awesome new axe from PRS. The Starla model. This guitar is a single cutaway with custom pickups and a Bigsby B5 tail piece and a Grover Tune-O-Matic bridge. Sit back and enjoy this new GuitarJamDaily feature with our own Phil Miller rockin' the Starla.



Similar in spirit to the double cutaway Mira model introduced at Experience PRS 2007, the single cutaway Starla has many vintage themed appointments and is PRS Guitars’ first solidbody electric guitar featuring a standard Bigsby B5 tail piece and a Grover Tune-O-Matic bridge. The guitar also includes exclusive Starla Treble and Bass pickups.

The solid mahogany Starla body is accented with a 24 ½” scale rosewood fingerboard, a solid mahogany neck and dot inlays or optional bird inlays. Proprietary Alnico magnets incorporated into the pickup design contribute to the guitar’s unique clean and crisp sound but are also capable of rich harmonic overtones when driven. Other features include a uniquely shaped black plastic pick guard, tone and volume pots and a three-way pickup selector. Color options include Vintage Cherry, Vintage Mahogany, Vintage Orange and Black.
