Paul Reed Smith is the founder of the iconic PRS Guitars, a U.S. maker of high quality guitars, basses and amplifiers. In his early days, Smith hung out backstage after concerts, selling his guitars to artists like Derek St. Holmes, Carlos Santana and Howard Leese to make ends meet. As more musicians sought Smith’s handcrafted guitars, he acquired enough orders to start his company in 1985. Because of its precise attention to details, it didn’t take long for PRS to gain a loyal following of musician across the U.S. and Europe. Every guitar and amplifier that PRS sells is based on decades of testing, reinvention and a commitment to raising the standard. The workers at the PRS shop are avid musicians who strive to make the perfect tools of creativity. SHOP OUR HUGE SELECTION OF PAUL REED SMITH GUITARS!
