Paul Reed Smith guitars are an exceptional boutique guitar for the working musician and not the budget musician. All they they do make some guitars that are conveniently price they're not up to the standards and specs that you would see from many of the guitars that got Paul Reed Smith to where it's at today. They have a great looking a great field to them with their chunky thick max and there are mix between a Gibson Les Paul and Fender Stratocaster guitar. They usually come with a nice finger quilted maple top on top of a mahogany wood in a mahogany neck with the rosewood fretboard. They generally have humbuckers installed and the pick up slots so you get a good chunky sick rhythm tone.

These guitars are pretty easy a play and if you have a good amplifier to go along with this guitar and you'll be set. Keep the necks are pretty big and thick so if you have big hands at a work for you but if you have smaller hands sometimes this won't be ideal. You might be looking for a Ibanez thickness of the neck rather than this guitar.

This guitar features to home buckers and you have a volume and control knob as well as a pickup selector. The scale length is a 22 scale length which is a one another shorter versions of their product line. It's a great overall guitar it's a great getting guitar and as a pretty decent sound if you're into the Gibson Les Paul sounded to Gibson overall sound primarily because it features mahogany wood throughout most of the construction of the guitar itself.

These guitar sound fantastic. If you playing through a Paul Reed Smith guitar amplifier because I guess they're voiced together to match each other perfectly. Generally the Paul Reed Smith guitar ants are a low to medium game so you're getting get a lot of notes separation clarity when he plays guitar through one of those in. The great overall sound and the high gain pickups will allow you to get a good hard rock and classic rock tone from grandpa fires. If you use in conjunction with the solid distortion or overdrive pedal you can get some great hard rock tones as well. I primarily like Paulie Smith guitars especially this one with a high gain amplifier. Just to use with a marshall or a Mesa boogie and you can get some great solid hard rock in the metal tones with this guitar. These guitars take drop tuning very well so don't be afraid to use that your discretion.


At new these guitars coming right around $2500 which is a pretty expensive price for guitar but then again this is for a touring professional and a professional guitarist list that time and knows exactly what they want. This is a great guitar for someone who's engaging musician and wants to put a great instrument or hands for recording and live purposes.
