Paul’s backstage salesmanship isn’t just a fun origin story: it also illustrates why PRS makes such incredible guitars forty years later. The same tireless work ethic that compelled Paul to stand out in the hot sun for six hours to give a rock star a thirty-second sales pitch also drove him to refine the electric guitar time and time again as he strived to reach the ultimate zenith of six-string perfection.

Paul’s drive towards perfection is a part of PRS’s DNA, and it shows in every guitar of theirs we receive. Whether it’s a Private Stock guitar with rare woods that we picked by hand, and luxurious cosmetic appointments, an S2, a Wildwood-exclusive Wood Library that we customized with more hand-picked woods, or a core model, each PRS displays outstanding fit and finish, playability, consistency, and reliability.
