PRS Guitars - noble electric guitars by Paul Reed Smith

PRS Guitars appreciate and love guitarists all over the world. One of the reasons why the PRS Guitars brand is so highly regarded is certainly that Paul Reed Smith has sought the views of professional guitarists to continually improve his electric guitars. He visited the bands and musicians at their concerts and let them try the PRS guitars backstage. Paul Reed Smith also had Carlos Santana play one of his guitars, who allegedly called the instrument an "accident of God" because it looked chic and played well. He immediately ordered two PRS guitars. With Carlos Santana the popularity of the PRS guitars increased significantly, and today Santana still plays guitars by Paul Reed Smith.

The golden mean between Fender and Gibson guitars

PRS guitars define the golden mean between Fender and Gibson and are characterized by incredibly high-quality processing standards at use of rarest materials like cross maple ceilings or mammoth ivory as well as gold-plated hardware. High quality and quality increase the price - that's why PRS guitars are among the more expensive electric guitars.

The Foundation of PRS Guitars

1985 PRS manufactures the first mature PRS Custom 24 model in series, which is considered the final foundation of the company PRS Guitars. As a result of Smiths' collaboration with former Gibson boss Ted McCarty, the PRS Guitars range of solid body and hollow body guitars is created.

Special on PRS guitars: More sustain thanks to one-piece stoptail

A few PRS guitars feature the one-piece-stoptail; a bridge cast as one piece and 100% octave clean - at least until you don't use very different string thicknesses. The use of this stoptail makes it possible to produce much more sustain than a tremolo system.

PRS guitars in famous hands

Many renowned guitarists play PRS guitars, including Carlos Santana, Dave Navarro, Brad Delson, Wes Borland, Mark Tremonti and Chad Kroeger. Carlos Santana wants to make affordable signature instruments possible for his fans at that time, Paul Reed Smith encourages to build cheaper models. They then launched the PRS SE series, manufactured in Korea. PRS guitars from this production are offered by PRS at lower prices.
