PRS At NAMM 2017

Filed Under Acoustics / Amplifiers / Electrics / Events

It's that time of year again as we trek to sunny Anaheim, California for the annual NAMM show! The National Association of Music Merchants or “NAMM” is a music industry trade show inaugurated in 1901. The show exists to support the music industry and show the world the latest innovations in musical products, recording technology, sound, and lighting. This week, tens of thousands will gather at the Anaheim convention center for a few days of business and music-filled fun. 

Paul Reed Smith attended his first NAMM show in 1985 and began to introduce our company's first models to the world. Our entire booth consisted of a humble 100 sq ft section on the main show floor.

For the past few years, PRS has been located in booth 210A, a larger room with dozens of our electric guitars, acoustics, and amplifiers hanging on display. 

Check out the video below as Paul Reed Smith walks us through our 2017 NAMM booth!

To catch all the action at this year's show, follow along on the PRS Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

I know I'm a bit late to the blog but I just watched the interview that Paul took over with Lee from Anderton's Music in the UK. It was an insanely generous and gracious gesture by Paul when Lee was presented with his SC594. I'm sure he will cherish it as much as I do my 2013 Custom 24. Now if I can only find out the brand of the A-frame stands that the electrics were sitting in at The NAMM booth, my life would be complete. (They resemble an Ulta stand I have from the mid 90's). Best of luck and continued success to PRS guitars.

Paul Reed Smith Guitars are simply the best guitars in the world.I was at the PRS factory last week for a tour and was honored to meet Paul Reed Smith himself. The entire experience was something that will stay with me forever as a precious memory, a priveledge, and an honor. Dollar for Dollar, They make the best guitar at any price point. It starts with Paul's heart, soul, and genius mind, and is finished by the hands of amazingly talented,happy,disciplined, and extremely hard working people at Paul Reed Smith Guitars. Attention to detail is second to none from Private Stock to Core Line, SE Line, and everything in between. Simply the best!! Thank You Paul for sharing your Gift and Talent with the masses for the past 32 years. May God Continue To Bless Your Heart and Your Hands So That In Turn, Your Heart and Your Hands Can Continue To Bless Us All Indebted To Your Contribution Of Making The Greatest Guitars In The World. Sincerely,Luis Morales

I was able to afford only one PRS and two PRS SE guitars! Their sound & quality is the " Best " ! I now understand why their " cost is expensive ! They " are " above most other guitars ! My [the] PRS SE Santana is the " Top-dog " above all of the PRS SE's " cold-blooded ! "....13

Love the booth from 1985. Shows what hard work and a good product can do for you. Bought a Private Stock In 2014.
