    He plays his signature model AT100CL and AT10P which is in current production, i'm not going to link another manufacturer on the PRS forum.

    I'm going with three acoustic players. (Acoustic guitar of their choice)

    1) Marcus Mumford (Mumford and Sons) - Because they're huge
    2) Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) - New solo CD, Postal Service reunion tour, new Death Cab CD coming soon.
    3) Colin Meloy (Decemberists) - Just because he's awesome

    I think Pete Loeffler is the most deserving and longest overdue.

    And Keith Urban would rock a PRS. PRS guitars are increasingly popular in that genre.

    1) Who would you suggest?
    2) Why?
    3) What is the PRS Model you would recommend?
    1) Jess Lewis (upcoming talented young lady from the UK)
    2) She's the real deal - chops, feel, and comfortable in multiple music styles
    3) Custom 22

    1) Dennis Casey of Flogging Molly

    2) Huge following HUGE...and PRS is totally missing the punk groups. The fact that I can buy a US made PRS at a cheaper price than a US made instrument from Nashville AND the PRS is far superior in the quality department should start to get some of these other bands on board. I love seeing Dave Knudson, Tim Mahoney, and Brad Delson using PRS Guitars...we just need to keep getting the word out!

    3) Probably a Custom 22 or McCarty




    Yes, that is a PRS sweatshirt...Dennis likes the Teles (this one is a Nash), Gretschs, and Les Pauls - I would love to get him into a PRS!

    1) Steve Vai
    2) Because, well, he's Steve Vai. Plus his signature line is very successful. He's a guy with ideas and is clearly an influencer.
    3) Johnny Hiland with a low profile Floyd and a single coil in the middle.

    You either care about paychecks or good guitars and good people - it's up to them.
    I disagree completely. Many advancements, enhancements, mainstays, etc. have come about due to artist involvement. Les Paul, Randy Rhoads Vs, Steve Vai JEMs (and the derived RGs), EVH EBMM/Wolfgangs, etc.

    I just read Shawn's post about picking artists without a signature guitar. That eliminates my two choices as well as a couple others suggested - Derek Trucks and David Gilmour.

    1) Pete Thorn
    2) He's a phenomenal player, well spoken, does the best demos, etc.
    3) Give him a Ted SC245.

    1) Jennifer Batten
    2) She's an incredibly versatile player, she played with Michael Jackson for years and Jeff Beck for several tours and albums.
    3) Give her an SAS NF with a Floyd - just make sure it's lightweight, I know from personal experience she doesn't like heavy guitars.

    I second this, but to make it interesting, I would suggest a 'singlecut trem P22' as a signature model. He does play a singlecut trem as his main guitar in recent years.

    1. Paul McCartney

    Well - has has plenty of access to PRS (and other high end) gear at Guitar Sanctuary, where he performs and teaches, but he seems to stick with Ibanez.

    And here's a shot of Keith Urban:
