Paul Reed Smith (PRS) Guitars is heralded as one of the major industry players in manufacturing. PRS decided early on that the most important goal was to manufacture great instruments, period. His desire was to build a guitar that inspires the player, meets the needs of the gigging musician for durability, and looks like a work of art on its own.
Treating their work environment like a guild, PRS Guitars gives an abundance of authority to their craftsman to be a self-contained quality control department. Every department works with the same philosophy: A great guitar PRS build will ensure that the next build will be better.
Whether you're searching for a new guitar or making an upgrade, Paul Reed Smith has something for all musical tastes and playing styles. In fact, they built quite the impressive lineup of top recording artists who continuously count on Paul Reed Smith, including Dave Navarro, Carlos Santana and Zach Myers. One of Paul Reed Smith's latest creations is a collaboration with John Mayer, the PRS Silver Sky electric guitar. It took more than two and half years to complete the design, a vintage-inspired instrument that's both familiar yet unmistakably PRS. It's design incorporates Mayer and Smith’s favorite elements from 1963 and 1964 vintage instruments.
Paul Reed Smith's family of musical equipment products has no lack of highly rated items. For guitars, the PRS Tremonti SE electric guitar is a popular choice. Featuring a solid mahogany body with plastic binding on the body, neck and headstock, this guitar was the result of a collaboration with Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti. Equipped with PRS-designed humbuckers and a durable gig-bag to boot, everything about this package is superb for a gigging musician. Paul Reed Smith also constructs heavy duty amp heads, and the 50W 2 Channel "H" tube guitar amplifier is built to last and built to blast. Consisting of an independent master volume, treble, mid, bass and gain controls with a global reverb, this monstrous amplifier is guaranteed to knock the socks off of anyone lucky enough to get in its way.
