Ish Guitars Exclusive Dealer Limited Run of Custom 24 Multi Scale 6 Strings!
My name is Jesse Wilson, owner of Ish Guitars. I hand picked every wood and option on this guitar in the Private Stock Wood Vault at the PRS Factory.
A Multi-Scale PRS?!
Yes, PRS went multi-scale (commonly known as fanned fret), and I was the one crazy enough to commission the very expensive $7000+ 8-month long research-and-development processes for the 6 guitars in our first run (more to come!). This means that you get an amazing 1-off multi-scale PRS without having to pay the huge amount of money to develop the guitar.
Ish Guitars has a "Dealer Exclusive" to 6 String Multi-Scale PRS guitars, so you can also custom order your own Multi-Scale PRS through us!
The frets are not fanned much on purpose. A PRS is a "best of both worlds" guitar, combining a Les Paul and a Strat. So, I picked a 25.5" scale (like a Strat) on the bass side for nice chimey Strat-like chording, and 24.75" (usual LP-style Scale length) on the treble side to have that awesome Les Paul lead guitar feel up top. 99% of the world isn't tuning to some crazy low C drop tuning, so most of us don't need a huge 27" scale on the bottom.
Another benefit of the small fan is that those who have played this guitar and the prototype guitar all said they did not need to "get used to" the change in the frets - which is exactly what the goal was - better intonation, tone, and balance, but without having to re-learn how to play guitar.
Many who have played this guitar have called it "the perfect PRS" because of the reasons above!
