PRS Marks 30th With Anniversary Models

...artists and bands as diverse as Carlos Santana, Periphery, Blake Shelton, Alter Bridge, and John Hyatt, to name a few. As it hits its 30th anniversary, PRS is still led by its founder, who heads up a team of around 240 employees at the PRS factory on a small island in the Chesapeake Bay. In line with his vision, PRS maintains a focus on designing and creating superior instruments using the finest resources available: beautifully figured tone woods, proprietary electronics, and patented processes.

“Since day one it has been our goal to craft the finest guitars and amplifiers possible, and I’m extremely proud of what we’ve achieved over the last 30 years,” said Paul Reed Smith. “But it doesn’t stop here. We will continue our journey, keeping the best of what we’ve learned while experimenting with new advancements and features.”

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, PRS is now offering a series of 30th Anniversary Custom 24 guitar models in each of its electric guitar product families—including the U.S.-made Private Stock, the distinguished U.S.-made Core line, the vintage-inspired U.S.-made S2, and the PRS-designed SE guitar—each incorporating the masterful design and craftsmanship that has become synonymous with the brand. For example, the U.S.-made 30th Anniversary Custom 24 Core model features a highly figured maple top with mahogany back, 25" scale length, 24-fret mahogany neck, and PRS’s patented tremolo system with locking tuners to enhance the guitar’s playability and feel. This guitar’s alluring carved body shape is available in 18 finish colors including Blood Orange, Jade, and Vintage Sunburst that bring a delicious depth to the natural wood grain. PRS 30th Anniversary bird inlays on a rosewood fretboard further enhance the beauty of this model. PRS’s new 85/15 treble and bass pickups come standard with a five-way blade switch and volume and tone controls, providing exceptional clarity and a versatile voice.
