With New Models
Paul Reed Smith’s 30th Anniversary year of 2015 continues to be a very successful one for the company as they offer a bevy of new guitar models! The new P245 Semi-Hollow guitar is a light weight instrument that offers a huge variety of sounds thanks to LR Baggs/PRS Piezo system th at allows you to combine acoustic guitar sounds with your electronic tones. Since it has two separate outputs you can either combine them with one cable or split them off to separate amplifiers or a PA system.
The 58/15 Limited Edition Custom 24 has custom everything including the new 58/15 pickups, it also has the solid bird inlays in the fretboard, bound ebony neck and the Gen HI tremolo system. Unfortunately, it is limited to only 150 guitars, 50 in each colour offered (Whale Blue, Black Gold, Charcoal Burst). In celebration of the second year of the PRS S2 models Smith is offering them in special Metallic Finishes this year which include: Ice Blue Fire Mist and Egyptian Gold.
In celebration of the PRS 30th Anniversary twoLimited Edition Vinemodels were offered, which were similar to the past tree of life editions. This included the Vine Custom 22 and Vine McCarty guitars both instruments feature figured maple tops and Paua/Paua vine inlays in their fretboards.
New editions to the popular and affordable SE line this year include the PRS SE 277 Semi-Hollow Baritone with Soap bar pickups, SE Standard 24, SE Standard 22, SE Standard 245 and the SE Santana Standard which is fitting since the SE line began in 2001 with Carlos Santana!
From high end Limited Edition collectors guitars to SE instruments that can fit into most players budgets PRS is not sitting on their laurels in this 30th year of innovation. EricDahl
