Wildwood Guitars Wood Library DGT Artist
A Tribute to An All-Time Favorite
Wildwood Guitars has had a long, illustrious relationship with both Paul Reed Smith and Dave Grissom, both of whom have been heroes to the Wildwood Staff for a long time. When Paul Reed Smith offered Wildwood Guitars the chance to raid his sacred Wood Library, we knew we had an opportunity to do something special. The Wildwood Staff has always been captivated by the incredible craftsmanship, gorgeous finishes and unparalleled consistency of Paul's works of art, and the opportunity to hand-select our tone woods to create a batch of visually stunning, tonally breathtaking instruments was just too exciting to pass up. It seemed like the perfect time to simultaneously pay tribute to both one of our favorite artists, and one of our favorite models in the PRS lineup: The DGT.
We flew out to Stevensville, Maryland, where we spent hours picking out incredible tone woods find for our very own Wood Library run. Every detail mattered, from the density of the necks to the specific weight of the mahogany backs. Paul was kind enough to allow us to choose every piece of each instrument, and we kept tone at the forefront of our mind as we agonized over which pieces of wood would sound best.
With the already-outstanding DGT as our platform, we elaborated on the wonderful groundwork laid by Paul Reed Smith and Dave Grissom. We took extreme care in selecting the finest quilted maple tops and Brazilian rosewood fretboards, and the result is a visually stunning aesthetic that compliments the incredible tone of the DGT pickup set and the choice mahogany and maple body. If you've ever chatted with us about Paul's phenomenal instruments, you know how much we love Dave Grissom and his outstanding signature model. Now, we invite you to experience the DGT's comfortable neck profile, top-of-the-line electronics package, chameleon-like sonic versatility, and drool-worthy cosmetic appointments with a little bit of Wildwood magic sprinkled in. We are honored to present our take on a modern classic: The Wildwood Guitars Wood Library DGT Artist Quilt model.
