NAMM 2013: PRS unveils the new 'Paul's Guitar' and 'Paul's MDT' amp

New for 2013, PRS is introducing a new guitar and amp designed to Paul Reed Smith's exacting specifications.

The new models - 'Paul's Guitar' and 'Paul's MDT' amplifier - are built with Smith's own needs as a musician in mind.

'Paul's Guitar' is a production version of the Private Stock guitar Paul Reed Smith has been playing in the studio and on stage and features exclusive 'brushstroke' bird inlays and two narrow 408 pickups. The guitar's every appointment has been specified by Smith from the wood selection, inlay design, pickups, neck shape, a new proprietary finish and newly-designed stoptail bridge.

“We’ve been experimenting with a new stoptail bridge with brass inserts that will first be seen on this model. The bridge is still our aluminum straight bridge, but the point at which the string starts vibrating, it’s brass to promote the musical high-end of the guitar,” said Smith.

Paul's MDT amp takes his favourite PRS amplifier model and adds a Cinemad transformer, midrange and presence controls, and a clean/dirty switch. These additions help to create a single-channel amp with two distinct voices that echo Paul's ideal clean and gain tones.
