The Private Stock Country Western Tonare

There are many myths of the American West and the fabled American Cowboy. While some of the myths are not kind and perhaps treacherous, the romanticism of wide open spaces, the coveted American Dream, and singing and playing guitar by the campfire continue to stir our imagination of Cowboy life. We’ve created the Private Stock Country Western Tonare to bring our imagination to life, check it out!

Meet the New S2 Maple Top Colors!

Filed Under Electrics / S2 Series

Since our announcement of the S2 line of instruments last year, we have been working hard to develop new guitars in the S2 family that look, feel, and sound great. We recognize that to many guitarists, the look of the guitar on stage is almost as important as its tone. With that said, our finish department has been working hard to develop a few new colors that we are proud to present on all of our maple top S2 guitars. Check out the new colors!

Understanding The Custom 24 Control Layout

The Custom 24 is the quintessential PRS guitar. This iconic instrument was the first model that Paul Reed Smith brought to the public at PRS Guitars’ first Winter NAMM show in 1985 and has been a top seller ever since.

This guitar is so popular because it gives a musician so many different tonal options in just one guitar. A player doesn’t need to mess with his or her amp in the middle of a gig to pull a different tone. When a new tone is needed, we’ve made it as simple as a flick of a finger.

For 2014, the PRS Private Stock Acoustic team will build 11 “Tree of Life” limited edition angelus guitars, with the prototype being auctioned off and proceeds going to support the research and work done by Kimmel Cancer Center at John Hopkins. The guitar features a winding tree of life inlayed fretboard with Bloodwood back and sides.

Understanding the S2 Controls Layout

Filed Under Electrics / S2 Series

Last year we introduced our S2 line of guitars with the idea of offering high-quality American made guitars at a more affordable price. We started with three models: the S2 Mira, the S2 Starla, and the S2 Custom 24. Since then, we have added 5 new models for a total of 8 product offerings in the S2 Series.

We are proud of how they look, how they feel, and most importantly how they sound. Each guitar in the lineup sounds a bit different and produces different tones. However, one thing that all of the S2 models share is their simple yet intelligent control layout that helps the player achieve a wide variety of great tones. Check out this blog post to see how it all works.

Meet PRS Guitar’s First All-Mahogany Acoustic: SE Angelus A10E

by PRS Guitars on September 16, 2014

Filed Under Acoustics / SE Acoustics

The SE A10E is the first all-mahogany guitar in the SE Angelus line up. It is offered in two colors, Tortoise Shell and Black. The all-mahogany body construction of this guitar provides a controlled attack and strong fundamental, delivering a warm, woody tone with a focused, punchy midrange. This strong midrange character allows the A10E to easily find a non-competing place in a mix, making it ideal for both the studio and the stage.
