PRS Guitars is pleased to continue their relationship with Alex Lifeson of Rush with the announcement of an all-new SE thinline acoustic signature model. The SE Alex Lifeson Thinline acoustic is a road-worthy guitar for players in need of a stage- and studio-ready instrument. Carrying over its unique appointments from the Private Stock Alex Lifeson acoustic, this model features a thinner body depth than PRS’s standard Angelus model and the “Birds in Flight” inlay design.
To continue the celebration of their 30th Anniversary, PRS Guitars is announcing two new limited edition models: the 30th Anniversary “Lefty” Custom 24 and the 30th Anniversary SE Custom 24 with flame maple veneer. These two models proudly celebrate the quality, innovation, and history of PRS Guitars through the Custom 24 platform. The Custom 24 is the original PRS - it defines the playability and tone that PRS guitars are known for and has been a constant favorite of players worldwide ever since its official introduction in 1985.
PRS Guitars is pleased to announce the newest addition to the S2 Series: the S2 Vela. The Vela model follows in the tradition of the company’s Mira and Starla models, providing vintage-inspired personality and tons of tonal textures.
For the second consecutive year, PRS Guitars is the official sponsor of the SXSW “Shred Shed,” a large soundproof space at the 2015 SXSW Music Expo. PRS will have the latest guitars, basses and amplifiers available and invites SXSW visitors to walk in the Shred Shed, shut the door and crank up the volume. Located in the Austin Convention Center Exhibit Hall 5, the PRS Shred Shed is also a great place to chat with PRS staff and PRS SXSW showcasing artists while seeing and playing the latest PRS gear.
As a teenager, Paul Reed Smith dreamed of building guitars decorated with European-style dragons. Paul’s dream became reality in 1992 when he unveiled his first limited edition Dragon guitar. Since that time, PRS Guitars has introduced only seven Dragon editions, each in very limited numbers. These guitars have become among the most desirable instruments in the company’s history, earning their place in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History in Washington, DC, the Musical Instruments Museum, in Phoenix, Arizona, and the National Guitar Museum, a traveling exhibit now located at the Liberty Science Center in New Jersey. This year for PRS Guitar’s 30th Anniversary, the 8th Dragon guitar will be released.
