When many people think of Paul Reed Smith, they think of a meticulous, creative luthier who built our company up to a reputation of master craftsmanship and innovation. As a company, we spend countless hours on each and every model making sure that every PRS instrument is ready to do its job on a stage, in a studio, or kicking back at home. There is however another side to Paul that is not widely known: Paul is passionate about teaching and mentoring.
For much of 2019 and 2020, our team was preparing and planning for our huge factory open house on May 8th and 9th, “Experience PRS 2020.” We anticipated that over 3500 of you would join us at our headquarters in Maryland and help us celebrate our 35th Anniversary in-person. As we all know, those plans were swiftly halted. So we brainstormed, we rallied, and we turned Experience PRS 2020 into an awesome virtual event. Get the scoop here.
We’ve returned home from sunny Anaheim, California after another great NAMM show. This year’s booth held more guitars and amplifiers than we’ve ever brought to the show before and the room was packed with PRS artists, fans, dealers, media outlets, and more. In this blog you can catch a full video and photo recap of our trip to NAMM 2020!
