2000: Piezo Patent Granted

Piezo

PRS Guitars introduced the first piezo equipped guitar in 1998 and after customizing the system with LR Baggs, the design was granted a US patent in 1999. The LR Baggs/PRS Piezo system provides musicians with both beautiful acoustic guitar tones and electric guitar tones in one instrument. This system allows guitarists to plug into their favorite electric guitar or acoustic guitar amp or DI into a soundboard, giving a new set of tonal possibilities to players.
