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

Filed Under Electrics / Core Electrics

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.
