Paul reed Smith guitars are very well know for their expensive but gorgeous looking guitars. they have guitars for every guitar player out there and most of their guitars features the exact same wood combinations. They usually have a mahogany with a rosewood fretboard and then a couple humbuckers installed into the instrument. They have had a variety of pickups that seem to be exclusive to their own company and brand.

If you have ever had any experience with a mahogany based guitar then you will be in good company with this guitar. This guitar will give you a nice deep rich tone that will fill the room quite nicely. It is a tone that has a full body and a wide range of frequencies. If you like clean tones than this guitar can do it, and if you like high gain tones than this guitar can do that as well. Overall, this is a very cool guitar that has a wealth of tone and feel.


I would recommend this guitar to anyone who is not on budget and wants someone of the best tone you can get out of a guitar. This guitar will give you that is spades. They come in new for right at around $700, which is actually a good price for a PRS guitar. So this is the budget friendly for PRS standards, but not budget for mine.
