1990: First CNC Machine

CNC Machines

CNC ("Computer Numerical Control") machines are computer-driven millers that replaced hand routers, shapers, and manual carving machines in the PRS wood shop. CNC’s help ensure a higher level of quality by providing more accurate and repeatable operations. While PRS Guitars are still completely hand sanded, assembled, and quality inspected, the CNC machine allowed for the perfect body and neck carve without the margin for human error.
