1990: EG Line - The Grandfather to S2


In order to appeal to a larger audience of musicians, PRS introduced the EG line as an affordable option for guitarists. It was an American-made guitar with two different pick-up layouts: three single-coils or two single-coils and a humbucker. The EG also introduced a new shape to the PRS line and provided the first 22-fret production guitars at PRS. The flat-alder body, bolt-on neck, dot inlays, and PRS standard vibrato with non-locking tuners kept costs down for customers. Though the EG would last only until 1995, it is now considered the “grandfather” of the affordable, Maryland-made S2 Series (introduced in 2013).
