PAUL REED SMITH GUITARS (PRS)
Instruments currently produced in Stevensville, MD since late 1995 and Korea since 2001. Previously produced in Annapolis, MD between 1985 and late 1995. Distributed by Paul Reed Smith Guitars in Stevensville, MD.
Combining the best aspects of vintage design traditions in modern instruments, luthier Paul Reed Smith designed a guitar that became very influential during the late 1980s. With meticulous attention to detail, design, and production combined with the concept of graded figured wood tops, PRS guitars have become touchstone in today´s guitar marketplace. The concept of a 10 top (denoting clearly defined figure across the entire maple top with no dead spots) was introduced by PRS Guitars, and the phrase, "It´s a 10 top with birds," has become magic for both PRS players and collectors.
As in the past, quality, tone, and player performance have become the key elements on all PRS instruments. Additionally, collectibility on older PRS instruments, especially those guitars manufactured in the late 1980s/early 1990s with killer wood and/or 10 tops, has continued to be strong, with prices having risen dramatically over the past decade.
