One of the most popular string instruments on themarket, Paul Reed Smith guitars have something different to offer than all others. They are used by famousmusicians such as Carlos Santana, who is a long standingcustomer of this company. Some aspects of their PRS are specific to their brand alone.
When the company was founded, only few musicians were able to experience the guitar. At that time it was hand made and therefore too expensive even for stars to buy. With time the company was able to move to mechanical methods, thereby making the instruments cheaper and their popularity grew.
Sustain is a quality in a guitar which helps the guitarist hold a note for long periods. As Carlos Santana, the chiefcustomer of this brand, is known to be the king of sustain,therefore the guitar is specially designed for this purpose. A mahogany back helps with providing sustain in this guitar.
This backing offers more resonance, than any other kind of materials which are found in many other guitars. Another specialty of their instrument is that its strings keep vibrating unless you mute it yourself; this is done with a special maple top. There is still more that defines this extra resonance of the PRS.
There is an additional V12 finish that keeps the guitar looknew, even after a long period of time. Yet at the same time this finish makes the guitar feel as if you have been playing it for years. Additionally, the finish is able to protect the guitar while making it resonate as it should, unlike many other guitars who would take you away from the sound.
This all seems good enough, but the PRS goes even further and makes the instrument produce every kind of sound possible. Some PRS have toggle switches to do this; eachswitch is able to adjust different aspects like tone, volume and pickup. The Paul Reed Smith Guitars cover it all from the level of a novice to a master.
