PRS Guitars and Vintage Guitar recently donated an SE Carlos Santana model to the West Fargo High School (ND), for use in teacher Mark Berntson’s Guitar 1 and Guitar Ensemble classes. The school supplies guitars for the courses, and Berntson teaches 50 to 60 students per semester. PRS gave the guitar to VG as part of the builder’s annual “pay it forward” effort, in which it sends instruments to various professional affiliates and asks them to find a suitable recipient.
“We really love our new PRS,” said Berntson. “The look is incredible and the playability is great! We ordinarily use instruments of a little lesser quality, so it’s nice to have a go-to electric that looks, plays, and sounds like a professional instrument!”
