Iconic guitarists like Ted Nugent, Carlos Santana, John Mayer, Alex Lifeson and Tony Mc Manus (who was named to Guitar Player Magazine’s list of 50 transcendent acoustic guitarists) have all played and endorsed PRS guitars for their quality, reliability and playability.
The PRS story is one of the more inspiring stories in modern guitar history.
If Smith wanted a guitar, he would have to learn to build it himself.
