Born in our Maryland shop, PRS Acoustics are heirloom-quality instruments with remarkable tone and exquisite playability. A small team of experienced luthiers handcraft all Maryland-made PRS acoustics with passion and attention to detail. Our team of wood buyers scour the globe for the most exquisite sounding and looking tone woods for these instruments. In this blog, we show off a few of our latest creations made from the prized Koa wood found on the islands of Hawaii.
The Paul Reed Smith Tech Center (PTC) is in the business of making your guitar dreams a reality. In addition to standard PRS repairs and maintenance, the PTC specializes in overhauling your guitar to meet your unique needs as a musician. In this blog post, we have a chat with one of our PTC employees, James Zimmers. James has been an employee at PRS for 14 years, and working with guitars since the age of 14 - about 20 years! Check out this blog post to learn more about the work James does in our PTC shop!
The PRS Collection Series was introduced in the Fall of 2011, and began with our dream of building the best guitar model we could. After sorting out the very best materials and woods, in 2011 the Collection Series I McCarty was released in a limited quantity alongside the Collection Series 1 Tonare Grand Acoustic. These prized instruments and our subsequent Collection instruments incorporate a balance of PRS traditions and innovations and are built with care to our exacting methods. In this blog post we explore the latest Collection Series, Collection Series IX.
