PRS Guitars introduces "Sunflower" finish for Mark Lettieri’s signature Fiore model


(STEVENSVILLE, MD) April 25, 2023 – At the end of March, Mark Lettieri took to the stage with his signature Fiore to put on a show for visiting dealers at PRS Guitars headquarters in Stevensville, Maryland. There, attendees got the first look at the new “Sunflower” burst finish. This classic new color option is a departure from the previous solid colors available for the Fiore, adding an extra touch of style to an already impressive instrument.

The Fiore, a signature bolt-on guitar model designed in collaboration with acclaimed guitarist Mark Lettieri, has quickly gained popularity among players for its swamp ash body, 25.5” scale length maple neck, and versatile pickup and electronics arrangement. The Sunflower finish not only adds a new aesthetic to the guitar but also embodies the spirit of artistic exploration that Lettieri and PRS Guitars have cultivated in the Fiore.

The Sunflower finish was named in the tradition of all Fiore model colors, reinforcing the model’s name (Fiore means flower in Italian) and the model’s signature truss rod cover design (designed by Lettieri’s very own mother).

The Fiore Sunflower, along with the other color options in the series, is available for purchase through PRS Guitars authorized dealers and distributors.
