PRS Guitars recently opened its new West Street East Museum Room and retail store at its manufacturing facility in Stevensville, Maryland. Named in tribute to founder Paul Reed Smith’s beginnings in a small shop in Annapolis, the facility serves as the base for tours offering a look at the processes used to build instruments and amplifiers, from raw wood or blank chassis to finished product.
Due to its length and technical nature, the 90-minute tour is not recommended for children under 10 years of age. A line of current models will be available for visitors to play-test. For more, including a schedule of tour days and times, visit: www.prsguitars.com/about.
