Experience PRS is just a couple weeks away, and we are working hard to put the final touches on the event everyone is anxiously waiting for. All registrants should keep an eye out for an email message from Bev Fowler which will include the event schedule, map and FAQ’s. This information will also be posted on the PRS website - www.prsguitars.com/experience. If you missed out on registration, you can still attend, and we’d love to have you! Admission at the door will be $50.00 per person (children under 12 are free). Complete event details will be emailed to registrants on September 4, but we’ve decided to give everyone a sneak peak at some of the artists who will be joining us this year.

We will kick this year’s event off on Thursday, September 13 with an exclusive Signature Club event featuring some good ‘ol blues and rock -n- roll. David Grissom and Mark Tremonti have been hard at work on their solo projects and are bringing their bands to Stevensville, MD just for you!

After a day of fun and informative clinics and product demonstrations, John McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension will headline Friday evening’s performance. McLaughlin’s musical influences carry over to many of the musical elite also declaring him to be “the best guitarist alive,” as Jeff Beck mused in 2010. His recent announcement of his latest album, Now Here This (Abstract Logix) is set for release on October 18, and we are excited to give you a taste of what this album has to offer. As John himself simply states, “Now Here This is the culmination of my life’s work till now.”

Mother’s Finest, featuring PRS bass player Jerry “Wyzard” Seay, will take you back to the 70’s and give you a taste of funk rock at Saturday night’s evening concert.

As always, the PRS Band will host various artists on stage as well, including Davy Knowles, Brent Mason, Emil Werstler, Bernie Marsden, Simon McBride, Neal Schon, Ricky Skaggs, and more.

We look forward to seeing you in September!

*Schedule Subject to change without notice.

As always, the PRS Band will host various artists on stage as well

The PRS Band is composed of the artists formerly known as Gary Grainger, Greg Grainger, and Mike Ault, or just simply, the hardest working rhythm section and second guitarist on the planet. :) These three musicians never cease to amaze me with their dedication to making all of the artists who they back sound good.

Anyone who has performed on a stage has experienced at least one "brain fart" moment. Experience can be a cruel mistress.

Still a very humbling event.

And... Heather took her promise to Paul quite seriously. The proto Sig belongs to her and to my daughter. I hope my daughter plays a hole through the finish when she's old enough to take it. It will never leave my family.

MDOT shut the westbound span of the Bay Bridge down last night due to unusual vertical movement. Let's hope that the problem with the bridge is not serious because two-way traffic on the eastbound span is going to be painful.

AAAAaaaaarrrrrggggghhhhhh! I just had a mini heart attack. That post made it look like you were talking about Thursday as in TOMORROW, not Thursday the 13th.....

Good thing I'm current in one person self administered CPR.....

Weather Report for Experience 2010: Too Hot! (Indian summer on steroids)
Weather Report for Experience 2011: Too Wet! (we almost had to put a call into Noah)
Weather Report for Experience 2012: Just Right! (fingers crossed)

Even with the rain in 2011, which was heavy at times, the weekend was still great.

I have never been disappointed at an Experience.
I hope to get to meet some of you this time.

Just for the record, while some may have considered the rain at XPRS2011 to be heavy at times, I was heavy the entire weekend. :mad:

We just finished our "pre-Experience" staff meeting. The wheels are rolling and gears are in motion. It's going to be a terrific event. I'm pumped!

Nice weather is a bonus - but it's not the weather that makes the event. It's the way you folks treat us and the great atmosphere there.

Drove past the factory on the way to the beach today - couldn't resist! I wanted to see how the place looked five days before. I was like a kid looking at a Christmas tree on Dec. 20 - my wife just laughed at me.

Plus, my wife absconded with one of my bar stools, and my daughter took my sofa when she got her own place...

Alright guys here's the deal. Experience is my favorite weekend of the year, period. Be you a new member or old , everyone here is awesome and friends that share a common interest. So with that being said, I realize that a lot of guys who are new to the forum, or who are attending their first Experience / weren't on the original PRS forum/BAM might not know who some of us forum members are in person. I decided to make PRS Forum ID badges - now they aren't the best thing ever, but they'll be easy to spot from across the event and will hopefully help the new people feel comfortable starting conversations with other forum members they had never met in person before.

Mike, your the 'MAN'! What a great idea to enable people to meet each other. I broke down and had a personal tee shirt embroidered, for the same purpose.

This event is going to be fun. I just hope that I don't have to hock my soul for the next Experience Guitar! I was hoping not to be tempted with a flamed maple neck, but you only live once.

Looks like tonight we'll have our first Van Halen sighting at Experience. Seems Wolfie is touring with Tremonti this time around because Mark's usual bass player is unavailable.
