PRS Release DGT Standard in The UK

The new PRS DGT David Grissom signature model has reached these shores

David Grissom is one of the world's best session guitarists and has performed in the John Mellencamp Band as well as playing alongside such greats as Buddy Guy, Chris Isaak, Sarah Hickman and Bob Dylan.

As such, his signature is sure to be a fine guitar, albeit one for those with a slightly bigger budget!!

Here's what they say…

Paul Reed Smith’s DGT David Grissom signature model has long been well-regarded by players who love its combination of feel and tone.

Now the company has launched the DGT Standard, a limited edition, all-mahogany version of Grissom’s original, with models soon to arrive in the UK.
The motivating factor behind the DGT Standard was to create a guitar that, in Grissom’s words had, “the sonic character of an all-mahogany guitar… more focussed in the mids… with a nice chime and growl as well.”
The construction of the DGT Standard is in keeping with Grissom’s first-ever PRS, an all-mahogany Seafoam Green Standard purchased in 1985. And his new guitar retains the features of the original DGT – special DGT neck carve, DGT humbuckers, push/pull tone control with three-way toggle switch, PRS Phase III locking tuners with faux bone buttons and PRS tremolo.
In addition, the DGT Standard is offered in a choice of nine finishes – Antique White, Black, Faded Cherry, Frost Blue Metallic, Green Burst, McCarty Tobacco Sunburst, Natural, Powder Blue and Seafoam Green.
The PRS DGT Standard will carry a recommended retail price from around £2495.
