Call it a cosmic coincidence. Chris Henderson was in a Las Vegas music store in 2000. His band 3 Doors Down had just begun their climb to platinum success. A salesman handed him a PRS Custom 22 and he instantly fell in love with the guitar.
"I'd never played a PRS before," Henderson recalls. "And I was completely floored. But at that time, I couldn't afford it. So I walked out of there and immediately called my manager to see if we could work out some way for me to get that guitar. And before I could say anything he said, 'PRS just called. They want to know if you want to try their guitars.'"
This conversation quickly led to the PRS Chris Henderson model, which has shed its middle humbucker for 2012 and more closely resembles the PRS SC 250 model.
3 Doors Down rose to national fame with their first single, “Kryptonite,” which charted in the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Since then, the band continues to perform more than 300 concerts a year to some of the most loyal fans in the business.
