What’s this “Periscope Guitar” you ask? ...Well it started a few months ago when we grabbed Paul Reed Smith and asked him if he wanted to try something new. We showed him an app called Periscope. Using the app, we were able to live-stream a broadcast of Paul inside our Wood Vault - a special section of our shop where we keep our finest Private Stock grade woods. During the broadcast, Paul solicited the help of viewers to select woods for what we have now affectionally dubbed the 2nd “Periscope Guitar!” The guitar came out great! Check out this blog post to view the Periscope broadcast and see the finished guitar!

Hello! Jack Higginbotham here – President of PRS Guitars. I recently returned from the Rolex 24 at Daytona, our partner IMSA’s most high-profile racing event. I have not attended this race in a few years since the NAMM show (the music/gear industry’s largest tradeshow) and the Rolex have traditionally landed on the same weekend, so it felt somewhat nostalgic to land at the tiny Daytona airport and make my way back to the track. Here is a bit of a story about the weekend…
