Paul Reed Smith Discusses Developing Guitars

Last month, PRS Guitars hosted its annual “Experience PRS" event in Stevensville, Maryland.

Guitar World was on hand to cover the proceedings, which included getting an eyeful (and earful) of the usual great gear, plus performances by Living Colour and Black Stone Cherry.

During the event, we got a chance to sit down with Paul Reed Smith himself and discuss PRS Guitars' new McCarty 594 model (watch here) and the history of the guitar industry (watch here).

Guitar World's Paul Riario also hosted a one-on-one chat with Smith, during which the guitar maker discussed his approach to developing guitars. You can watch the full video below.
