Founded in 1985, Paul Reed Smith Guitars is a leading manufacturer of high quality instruments and amplifiers located in Stevensville, Maryland. We have a passion for building instruments and also for the music that these instruments help create. Since our beginning, PRS has provided some of the world’s most renowned musicians with their gear. Carlos Santana, Neal Schon, Linkin Park, Orianthi, Opeth, Tim Mahoney of 311, Mark Tremonti of Creed and Alter Bridge, Ricky Skaggs, Cody Kilby, Martin Simpson, Tony McManus, Warren Haynes, and Derek Trucks are among the artists currently playing PRS instruments and/or amplifiers.
For us, guitar and amplifier building are very personal ongoing processes of discovery. We are devoted to the guitar's rich heritage while committed to new technologies that will enrich our products with uncompromised tone, playability, and beauty. Our success depends on our ability to listen, implement positive change and continually refine our craft. We believe that passion is directly reflected in everything we do, from our instruments and amplifiers to our cables, parts, and accessories.
