What would the world look like without our guitar heros? PRS has over the years worked with some of the most influential guitarists in history and has been awarded with their own signature model. Carlos Santana was one of the very first endorsers and the Santana Retro-model is based on one of the original models from the 80’s. If hard rock and metal is what you crave, the Mark Tremonti signature model is the guitar for you with it’s high output humbuckers and fat tone. You can also find the David Grissom signature model which is a versatile vintage inspired guitar based on the McCarty (but with a little twist of course).
The DGT (David Grissom Trem) is the result of more than 20 years of collaboration between Paul Smith and David Grissom. The DGT is based on the McCarty with a unique DGT neck shape, taller frets, special pickups, and a revised control layout. Grissom and Paul spent a year A/B-ing more than forty sets of pickups before nailing the vintage-voice of DGT humbuckers. When paired with individual volume controls for each pickup and a push/pull master tone control that operates the coil taps, DGT pickups provide versatility and articulation.
“The DGT is a product a lot of miles down the road: a lot of gigs, a lot of records. It’s like picking up a vintage guitar. It sounds like a vintage guitar, and out of the box it’s ready to go. There’s a whole lot of thought gone into this. The DGT is pretty perfect to me.” – David Grissom
