Since his early days making guitars at St. Mary's College to the first appearances of his work on stage with Ted Nugent and Carlos Santana, Paul Reed Smith's guitars have exploded worldwide as the choice for discerning musicians who love their guitars precise, clean and flamey. While today PRS guitars may seem mainstream, the early days before 1995 (when the factory moved to Kent Island) represent a sort of Golden Age for the company, when the designs were still fighting for market acceptance and credibility. Many of these early pieces are increasingly seen pre-corporate collector's items, much in the same way people see pre-CBS Fenders. Check out the early work that seduced the likes of Alex Lifeson, Al DiMeola, Dave Navarro, Mark Tremonti, and most famously of all, Santana.
