Sharpen My Axe

Musician, guitar teacher, and YouTuber Tyler Larson (Music Is Win) recently sent his beloved SC245 10-Top to a fellow musician, YouTuber, and former PRS dealer, Phillip McKnight. Phil hosts a cool segment on his YouTube channel called, “Sharpen My Axe” where he overhauls and updates instruments to a new and beautiful working condition. 

Tyler has a special relationship with his PRS after he spent weeks eyeing it up at a local music store and saving the cash to bring it home. He purchased the guitar which he lovingly refers to as “Baby” in the Summer of 2012 while a student at the Berklee College of Music.

Once Phil received the guitar by mail, he got to work polishing and tweaking the instrument with updated PRS pickups, knobs, and more. 

Check it out in the video below!

Of course Tyler was very pleased when he got the instrument back in his hands, check out his side of the story below!

This episode of the Sharpen my Axe was very good, the idea of the series is interesting as can be seen by the amount of views they receive. I thought it was good of PRS to contribute parts to this renovation and improvement project and I feel sure it will filter back to sales over time. I myself own 5 PRS products so you can see I like the brand! I think it must be obvious that interacting with the playing community can only be a good thing for PRS.
