Tough call. I like many of the artists. Mike Scott is way up there for me.
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
Carlos Santana,Opeth and Alex lifeson
My far and away favorite is David Grissom. Carlos Santana and Howard Leese are also high on my list.
'Did you ever get down on your hands and knees and beg a potato to get fat?' - Ezra Craddock
Howard Leese. But being a dear friend of mine, I may be biased.
It would be Howard Leese and Martin Barre. Also Orianthi, as it's great to see an Aussie flying the PRS flag.
Mike Scott and Bernie Marsden.
“He had a voice that could make a wolverine purr and suits so fine they made Sinatra look like a hobo.”
Mark Tremonti and Emil!

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.
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
Even though some of these guys don't play PRS exclusively - here are my favorites that do play PRS:
Joe Walsh, Neal Schon, Tom Johnston, David Grissom, Howard Leese, Kurt Allison, Alex Lifeson, Brent Mason, Bruce Kulick, and Pat Travers.
Dave Baksh (Though he's not really playing PRS as much these days from what I can gather)
Thanx for including me in your lists of artist. Honored.
