Thread: If the PRS Artist Relations Manager called you...

  1. #1

    If the PRS Artist Relations Manager called you...

    If the PRS Artist Relations Manager (Bev) called you and asked you to recommend 3 guitarists you think they should chase...

    1) Who would you suggest?
    2) Why?
    3) What is the PRS Model you would recommend?

    I'd add a further wrinkle to this. The players should not be associated with a current signature model. i.e Eric Clapton and his signature Strat.

    Wow Hans...tough one. I have a few but will go with the most mainstream that I can think of off the top of my head.

    1) Keith Urban

    2) He is an absolute killer on the guitar and has a huge worldwide following and is very "in the public eye".

    3) The DC-3, CU24, NF-3

    (I don't know if he has a sig model anywhere else)

    1) Any popular Christian Genre guitarist who plays Gretsch.

    2) I know A LOT of christian guitarists that buy Gretsch guitars because these Christian band artists play them.

    3) Starla, HB II w/Piezo, JA-15 with Starla pickups

    No one. PRS shouldn't chase anyone - artists should chase PRS.

    You either care about paychecks or good guitars and good people - it's up to them.

    Shawn, you've thrown a curveball there...

    There's lots of guitarists i'd love to see playing a PRS. Gilmour, Knopfler and many more but they've all got sig guitars. I'll have to think about this...

    Gilmour's got a big collection... It wouldn't surprise me if there isn't a PRS knocking about. I can't see Gimour swapping his Strats for anything though.
