The NF 53 is Paul Reed Smith's interpretation of the traditional T-type guitar, and it's undoubtedly the Maryland company's most daring new model since the Silver Sky debuted in 2018! The PRS NF 53 is based on one of Paul's favourites vintage guitars from 1953, and features a Swamp Ash body and a 22-fret, 25.5"-scale bolt-on Maple neck. A special set of PRS Narrowfield DD ("Deep Dish") pickups, adding some modern warmth to the instrument, with larger bobbins to accommodate more winds and extra metal components in between the magnets to produce a more focused, powerful tone.

The PRS NF 53 also has master volume and tone controls, a 3-way blade pickup switch, PRS vintage-style tuners.

Paul Reed Smith on the NF 53:

"I am so pleased with the feedback from the artists who have played this guitar – everyone is telling us that we have something special here," said Paul Reed Smith. "If you are a fan of this style and tone, the NF 53 will take you where you want to go. To me, to have this kind of beautiful high-end without the hum is game changing."
