Throughout our company’s history, the Dragon models may be the most visually striking instruments we’ve ever created. From ornate inlays featuring abalone, gold, and pearl, to our most highly figured woods, every limited edition Dragon is a union of art and musical instrument. In this blog we look back at every PRS Dragon ever created and share some special new video footage commemorating our latest 35th Anniversary Dragon.
Developing an entirely new guitar, let alone three of them, is no easy task. It takes a village to pull it off paired with a significant amount of communication, dedication, and vision. To help tell the story of bringing our McCarty 594 instruments to the S2 line, we interviewed two key PRS employees who were particularly involved in this project. In this blog we explore the inspiration behind the original PRS McCarty instruments and how we brought the spirit of the McCarty 594 models to our S2 family.
The PRS Crossroads Pre-Factory Santana I Limited Edition is modeled after the first guitar that Paul Reed Smith built for Carlos Santana. In the Fall of 1980 when Paul built this first instrument for Carlos, he likely wouldn’t have realized its future historical significance and the long-term relationship it would launch with Carlos. In this blog, learn about the history of this new limited edition model and its connection to 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival.
