I think it is Emil Werstler. Great riffs, amazing solos, great guy and a fantastic teacher. I love his approach to playing and it always makes me want to practice and write

My far and away favorite is David Grissom. Carlos Santana and Howard Leese are also high on my list.

It would be Howard Leese and Martin Barre. Also Orianthi, as it's great to see an Aussie flying the PRS flag.

Gerry Leonard, AKA "Spooky Ghost." Not very well known, but he's a killer session/touring guy...plays with David Bowie, Duncan Sheik, Suzanne Vega, etc etc. His playing style/sound is truly unique...I've seen him with a few PRSi, but usually a white Hollowbody.

I'd say David Grissom is a close second.

Even though he doesn't play them often, probably Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace, and Daniel Johns of Silverchair.

No idea. Didn't know he was dealing with anything.

I don't really "follow" people or bands anymore so I'm usually the last to know.

Santana, Orianthi (great role model for my daughters), Alex Lifeson... I think, having grown up a Michigan boy, it would have to be Uncle Ted... He and Santana were the first PRS players I was aware of back in the day

Mark Tremonti is my favorite. He walks up to you, shakes your hand, and looks you in the eye during a coversation. Even though he has been asked the same gear and song questions over and over, he really is interested in what his fans have to say. I met him at a Meet and Greet at Wildwood Music in Colorado in May. It was scheduled for two hours before a Creed show that night in Denver. During the course of the two hours, there were 20-30 people who came and went. Most just wanted signatures and to shake his hand. Mark stayed the entire time and talked those of us who really enjoyed his tech talk, advice, or anything that came up. He was never too busy to sign something (anything), do quick interviews and still gets excited when he sees his signature models on the wall. he had to try out one uniques orange-colored one. It was an inspiration just to be around him.
I also sat next to Nicky Moroch on a plane from Denver to Tucson. He was touring with Al Jarreau and David Sanborn. Nicky too is a great guy and easy to talk to with no pretense, just a love for the instrument.

It was Alex Lifeson's interview years ago for some guitar magazine that first made me familiar with PRS guitars. He mentioned that PRS is the only guitar that is set up correctly, right out of the box. My brain interpreted that as: PRS=Quality Guitar

OK, I had second thoughts about possibly being too harsh and decided I should review some of the Shinedown vids... That convinced me that the right thing to do was to post this retraction:

Zach Myers Apple Pie

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
4 tablespoons cold water
FILLING:
7 cups thinly sliced peeled baking apples
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon water

Directions

In a bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening. Gradually add cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing lightly with a fork until dough forms a ball. Chill for 30 minutes. On a floured surface, roll half of dough into 10-in. circle. Place into a 9-in. pie pan.
In a bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; add to apples and toss. Pour into crust; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; cut slits in top. Place over filling; seal and flute edges. Beat egg yolk and water; brush over pastry. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F; bake 40-45 minutes more or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

Well it was either that or the SPAM pie:

Ingredients:
1 double pie crust
1 can Spam, cubed
1 cup partially cooked potaotes, cubed
4 oz Velveeta, cubed
8 oz Mozzarella cheese, cubed
1/4 cup bell pepper, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
3 tablespoons milk
Salt, pepper

Mix all ingredients adding enough milk to keep the mixture moist. Pour into the pie crust and put second crust on top; slit. Bake at 350 degrees until browned.

THANK YOU!

I gotta say, it's always annoyed me how Zach Myers received a signature model as a member of Shinedown and has taken credit for the songs on The Sound of Madness disc. For one, he didn't write, nor did he play those songs on the album - Jasin Todd did. There is proof if you go on youtube of all of the singles being performed over a year and a half before Sound of Madness was released with Jasin playing them.
Zach Myers truly is a guy who walked into a dream situation really. He was totally overshadowed by Nick Perri who was really Jasin's replacement in that band. When he left they just didn't get another second guitarist and just had Zach step up. One can say kudos to him for doing that, but it's not like it was always a 2 guitar band, only for the first six months that Sound of Madness was released.
The songs on Amaryllis are not Shinedown, they're a combination of Brent Smith and song writers and producers crafting some pretty good commercial pop/rock.

That's cool. I love Gary Moore's playing, and I always forget about him using a PRS. I think of him with Greenie or some other Gibson, or maybe even an Ibanez Roadstar back in the 80's.

There wasn't a single artist at the Experience that wasn't cool, down to earth, generous with their time and wiling to share their knowledge. It's tough to pick a fav, but David Grissom and Bernie Marsden are at the top of the heap. David's amp clinics were a thing of beauty for a gigging guitarist.

Yea, I was wondering why Davy wasn't listed. I agree, Davy is an incredible talent. First saw him when he was 19 with Ross and Adam on a CBS morning show. Usually I snore through the artists they introduce, but these guys "got the blues right." For a bunch of young British guys they blew me away and Davy's guitar playing was incredible even then. A few weeks later my son and I caught the Slam at the 8X10 in Baltimore and got a chance to talk with them. Davy was, and still is, one of the most humble people you could eveer meet. At the time he was playing a Strat and we were at the Birchmere when Paul gave him his own guitar on stage. If you haven't checked him out, in any configuration, do yourself a favor and give him a listen. He's an excellent songwriter, as well.

Fave PRS players for me are Carlos Santana, Alex Lifeson, Mark Tremonti and Dicky Betts. Fave PRS amp players are Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes, but he only uses them with his solo band. There are numerous great guitar players moving to PRS now as well... it's hard to keep up with them all.

Ah, shucks, thanks! I don't know if I consider myself a PRS Artist, more of a PRS appreciator, but I must say I was very proud to rock a PRS at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month! (At an event sponsored by Gibson!) ;)

Probably true re me having more PRS than most PRS Artists, up to 56 now over the past four years, with two more on order!! :D

I can't believe no one has mentioned Simon McBride yet. He ROCKS! Just listened to his new album today, it is great!

Beyond that for me the PRS players that have had the biggest impact for me with regards to PRS appreciation have been:

Mark Tremonti (without him I would have never bought my first PRS!)
Carlos Santana (also helped put PRS on the map for me)
Myles Kennedy (two awesome guys in one band rocking PRS's - too cool!)
David Grissom (great musician, and awesome Signature model!)
Howard Leese (great guy, showed BrianC and I a great time with the Paul Rodgers band in Chicago earlier this year!)
Davy Knowles (great to have a young up-and-comer with roots in bluesy rock!)
Orianthi (good role model for my kids to get into music!)

Also just learning all the country bands and guitarists, my family has gotten into country lately, unbelievable how many guitarists in country use PRSi. Watched the CMA's this year, I think there were more PRSi than Gibson and Fender combined!
