Every once in a while on our blog you’ll see a post title labled “missed connections.” It’s our way of making sure you have a chance to see all of the great limited run guitars that we make - often in very small batches! This “missed connection” features the Dustie Waring Limited Edition signature model!
Dustie Waring is a rhythm and lead guitarist for the popular progressive metal band Between the Buried and Me. Dustie is a fantastic player and has endorsed PRS guitars for years. In October 2014, the Dustie Waring Limited Edition was released with a 3-month order window. While the order window has expired, some of these models are still available at the select dealers below!
“I can’t see myself playing anything else. They are perfect instruments that you can get any tone you want out of, and they look absolutely badass.” Dustie Waring
Dustie’s signature guitar is mean looking and mean sounding. It comes stock with Dustie’s Signature DiMarzio Pickups, glow-in-the-dark side dots, a Floyd Rose Tremolo, and a locking nut.
Since 2008, Waring has traditionally used a PRS Custom 24 outfitted with a Floyd Rose tremolo system. This limited edition signature model takes the PRS Custom 24 ‘Floyd’ platform and adds some unique features that Dustie specified to make his perfect PRS, including Dustie Waring signature DiMarzio humbucking pickups. Waring’s signature pickups were designed to cover the spectrum from pristine cleans to heavy rhythm chords all with no harsh trebles or mushy bottom end. Paired with black hardware and a satin finish, these guitars have a look that is as sophisticated and menacing as Waring’s tone.
“PRS guitars are something you can be proud to own. They’re simply incredible! But aside from the amazing looks, crazy playability and super thick sound; the company believes in what they’re building and put everything into it. There’s no sacrifice in any part of the build, it’s 100% all the way. There’s a family vibe at PRS and it shows in every product. For what I do in BTBAM and my other projects, they’re the perfect guitars for me.” - Dustie Waring.
