The “Stripped” 58 offers straightforward tone, quality, and comfort in an attractive, no-nonsense package. Originally offered as a limited run for Experience PRS 2011, the Stripped 58 has a classic, resonant voice that is eminently recordable and gig ready. This vintage-inspired instrument is perfect for more traditional single-cutaway style players and is also instantly comfortable to musicians who grew up playing short scale guitars. Get your hands on one today.

Now, if they made one with the "Ted" headstock... Come to mama!

Pretty sure the headstock shape doesn't affect how it sounds or plays... ;)

Love my stripped...great guitar for a great price. I see they now come with a 10-top option, too. Mine has an amazing top, even though it's not a 10.

Glad to see the Stipper has become a standard model now. I missed out on grabbing one during the original run so now I'm glad that'll I'll have another shot at one.

BUt it certainly changes the way it looks. And if you really want me to believe that looks have absolutely nothing to do buying a guitar, I'll quote Judge Judy: "Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining...":D

Didn't PRSH use the phrase "visual arrest" when talking about opening the case for the first time?

I actually prefer it with the moons vs the birds. Interesting to see birds and 10 top option on this model.

Would love to see similar release for the McCarty 58.

You bet. Just teasing ya, big fella.

Seriously, my Stripped 58 may be the best sounding PRS I've ever owned. That's a lot of PRSes! I think it's a great idea that they came out with this as a production model. All I can say is try one before deciding that the headstock is a deal breaker.

Looks nice... I'd like a 25" scale SC. It's my favorite scale length!

Oh, no doubt on my end. Just something about the SC Teds gets my GAS levels up...

I've played one of the protos. Great guitar. I was all set to hate the bridge till I played one... So much for visuals, right?

That said I can't say I've ever seen an "ugly" PRS guitar... Oh, wait, I forgot about "Clown Vomit!"

I am dreaming about a Goldtop with birds... Unfortunately, given my situation, dreaming is probably about as close as I'll be able to get.

I am VERY happy that there are something other than birds available on the fretboard. I am looking forward to checking one out.

I'd lean that way as long as they would make one with a next sized up neck. Otherwise, well...you know the drill.

Funny that you mention that! I was a big fan of the wrap tail, and was worried that the 2 piece bridge might simply be a gimmick.

But it sounds so wonderful that it supplanted the Artist V as my favorite PRS, and that's saying something because I love that guitar. I have an SC58 on order.

I generally find PRS guitars to be held in high regard over there, as they should be.

The Ted McCarty models have a unique headstock

I think it's shared with the acoustics and the Santana model.

I totally dig those short-scale SC's.

This is great. I think the DGT Standard was a good move also. Maybe a McCarty Standard with or without trem with 5708s might be cool also.

I have to say I couldn't agree more on the headstock though, I would bite your arm off for this if it had the Santana/Ted headstock. Question for Shawn, would it be possible to order one of these with that headstock without the cost of a fullblown PS? Basically just have the exact same guitar but with the different headstock shape? I can understand that there would obviously be an additional cost on the guitar but it would be pretty cool. Maybe even make the other headstock an option alongside 10-top and birds?
