Paul Reed Smith Modern Eagle, 2007

Faded Blue Jean, I have very strong feelings for this one as it was a gift from Paul Reed Smith! He is such a wonderful man and I had heard stories that he would give someone the shirt off his back, but I was stunned (and brought to tears) when he literally gave me his personal guitar, right off his back! He told me he didn't want to see this hanging up somewhere as he really wanted me to play it. I don't gig as much as I used to, but I'll have this one with me when I do!

 

Paul Reed Smith Archtop Artist Prototype, 1997

Black Sunburst, Abalone logo and birds, Gold hardware, Prototype #10 written on back of headstock. I bought this one from Paul from his archive guitars. It appears to be unplayed!

 

Paul Reed Smith Santana Prototype, 2005

Santana Yellow, "Pre Production Proto #1" written on back of headstock. I purchased this one from Paul's archive guitars and it appears to be unplayed!

 

Paul Reed Smith Signature, 1992

Cherry Sunburst, Inlaid eagle on headstock, Birds and gold hardware, Written on the back of the headstock is "The last sig series, The end of an era" and then signed by Paul Reed Smith. I love the strong cherry color and the reverse chevron top on this one!

 

Paul Reed Smith Limited Edition, 1990

Sunburst, Number 6 of 300 made. This one is chambered with a Redwood top, Gold hardware and a tuneomatic/stop tailpiece combination that I LOVE on a PRS! I wish they'd do more like this! The fingerboard is very light on this one, so they must have been experimenting with some different woods for their fingerboards. I bought this one directly from Paul a few years back. It was in his archive guitar stash and appears unplayed.

 

Paul Reed Smith Custom, 1992

Cherry Sunburst, Bird inlays, Another one of the stop tailpiece/tuneomatic guitars! I love this set up on a PRS!

Vintage Yellow with bird inlays on a Brazilian board and a sweet switch. To me, this is the perfect combination for the early PRS guitars!
