From his time with instrumental ensemble Snarky Puppy to countless studio sessions and his acclaimed solo work, Mark Lettieri knows a thing or two about guitars. Amid their constant journey to innovate the electric guitar, PRS decided to tap into Mark's vast experience and knowledge, a collaboration that resulted in the Fiore. Directly developed with Mark, and incorporating many of his preferences, the PRS Fiore (Italian for "flower") marries a stunning new double-cut design with top-notch electronics to produce a road-ready workhorse capable of a wide range of sounds. Bolted onto a maple neck, the Fiore's swamp ash body delivers excellent resonance and sustain, while its silky-smooth maple fingerboard is perfect for playing styles of all kinds. Music Experience's many PRS loyalists love the newly designed Fiore pickups in the HSS configuration, as well as the universe of tonal potential accessible via its 5-way blade switch and push-pull knobs. For an added personal touch, a custom "Fiore" logo truss rod cover sits at the headstock, which was designed by Mark's mother.

    Resonant and durable woods ready for the road

    MResonant and durable woods ready for the road From head to heel, the PRS Fiore is constructed with roadworthy playability in mind. High-quality tonewoods will bring out the absolute best in your playing, starting with a lightweight and resonant swamp ash body that offers defined lows, sweet highs, and incredible sustain. The bolt-on maple neck is perfect for producing a bright, snappy "zing," and it's durable enough for serious gigging. Everything from elegant chords to furious solos is possible with the Fiore's fast-playing maple fingerboard, and the instrument's relaxing neck profile allows for longer sessions and greater playing comfort.

    Unleash that perfect sound with HSS Fiore pickups

    Meticulously voiced by Mark Lettieri, the new PRS Fiore pickups imbue incredible tonal versatility into an HSS configuration, ideal for a wide variety of playing styles and genres. The Fiore humbucker in the bridge is primed and ready to explode in high-gain settings, with a smoothened high-end ideal for exquisite clean playing. Both Fiore single-coil pickups work exceptionally well together, exuding balance and beauty that reacts to your playing for an added unique touch. A 5-way blade switch and push-pull controls unlock even more tone shaping options, guaranteeing you'll dial in your perfect sound.

    The personal Lettieri touch

    In designing the PRS Fiore, Mark Lettieri intended to let his musical philosophy blossom in every facet of its construction. Modern looks and effortless playability combine with tonal versatility to create the Fiore, an instrument encompassing the grace and beauty worthy of its name. Even down to the custom truss rod — designed by Lettieri's mother — the PRS Fiore truly stands out in its class, striking in appearance and stunning in terms of its sonic possibilities.

    Revamped finish for classic feel

    Never one to stand pat, PRS has retooled the finish process for their latest models. Taking cues from Private Stock finishes that entail high-gloss nitro over a cellulose CAB basecoat, the result is a finish that's thin, durable, and crystal clear — the perfect formula for vintage feel and superior resonance.

    What PRS Says...

    All guitarists have a sound in their head – a sound that evolves and grows as they progress, discovering all of the beautiful idiosyncrasies that define their individual voice. To facilitate this process, players need a vibrant, dynamic guitar that becomes a free space in which their personality can unfold. PRS and I designed Fiore (Italian for ‘flower’) to be this guitar.” – Mark Lettieri
    The PRS Fiore model continues PRS Guitars’ journey into the bolt-on, single-coil guitar world. Developed with guitarist, composer, producer, and instructor Mark Lettieri, the PRS Fiore offers a modern aesthetic, effortless playability, and an addictive and sophisticated tonal canvas. The PRS Fiore pickups were carefully voiced by Lettieri and PRS to allow players a platform to explore and find their voice. The Fiore-S single coil offers exceptional malleability in tone. Capable of capturing all the articulation found in everything from whisper-quiet melodies to full on funk and rock explosivity, this pickup reacts to each player's unique approach. The Fiore-H humbucker fulfills Lettieri’s desire for extensive versatility in the treble position: enough power and punch for high-gain lead tones, but with a smooth top end that allows the pickup to be played clean, even with the volume knob wide open. Both the Fiore-S and -H work seamlessly together, producing balance, clarity, and that elusive ‘bloom’ in all five positions. But the tone exploration doesn’t stop there. The Fiore model features a 5-way blade switch with traditional wiring (bridge / bridge + middle / middle / middle + neck / neck). The Fiore also features a single volume and two push/pull tone controls, which further adds to this guitar’s tone-shaping abilities. Lettieri brought several personal design choices to this model, including a custom truss rod cover drawn by his very own mom. Other appointments include a Swamp Ash body, 22 fret maple neck with maple fretboard, and 25.5” scale length for classic look and feel.
