Jazz Guitar Today also reached out to a few people to comment about Paul and PRS Guitars.

John McLaughlin – Paul Reed Smith is one of a very rare breed of luthier. He is able to transform lutherie, or the art of building a guitar, into a true art form. For proof of this, simply open his book of custom guitars and you will find art.

Jimmy Herring – I am honored to have a friendship with Paul Reed Smith. He is one of the most driven people on the planet… His never-ending quest to grow and evolve his art has been a tremendous inspiration. Over the years, he’s become a close friend and I seek his advice all the time.

David Grissom – I’ve had the honor of working with Paul for the past 35 years. My PRS journey from the Standard through the McCarty model and now the DGT is one of friendship, inspiration, and knowledge. Paul is a passionate craftsman and musician whose relentless pursuit of tone has led to what I believe are the finest new instruments available.
