While touring with the Steve Augeri fronted version of Journey, Neal endorsed PRS Guitars. He used them up until 2003. In this video, he can be seen using a custom-built Private Stock Custom 22. You can see the Private Stock logo on the headstock at 1:50. He uses several of them throughout the entire Journey 2001 concert.more
"In October of 2004. I like Les Pauls, but mine kept getting broken; you look at them the wrong way and the headstock snaps. PRS sent me a couple guitars and they were really solid, played great, and looked fantastic. I prefer the single-cut ones, and my main guitar is a Custom 22 Singlecut. I have them widen and round the nut because I use heavier strings, so I can take the whammy bar all the way down and it comes back in tune. Plus, I can bring it up a minor third. And I’m so glad not to have a locking nut or have to cut the ball-ends."more
Adam used a PRS Custom 22 after leaving Parker. In this interview, he talks about using a Custom 22 to record Times of Grace's "The Hymn Of a Broken Man" http://www.musicradar.com/guitarist/interview-adam-dutkiewicz-times-of-grace-killswitch-engage-361860 "A Custom 22 – I have a green one and a blue. I'm using the Dragon 2 pickups."more
"I’ve been playing Paul Reed Smith guitars exclusively for around seven years now. I think they have a lot of character that the majority of other guitars lack. I’m a traditionalist by nature, so I use passive pickups and accent the tone by pairing them with the right wood. With that being said, all of my guitars are completely different in some way. On this tour, and most U.S. tours, I travel with around seven of them. They are used for different tunings — one main and one backup per tuning: Drop C, Drop B, and Drop A. The 7th guitar is used as a bus guitar for warming up or teaching on the road."more
"This guitar has been a mainstay of my sound since the beginning of the band in 2010. Throughout the recording of Once upon a lie single, Save yourself E.P, and If it Kills Me Album, this guitar is 75% of the sound" Proof from Save yourself music video -can be seen clearly throughout especially at 1:20more
Main guitar. I use it through a 3rd Power British Dream. Cleans up beautifully with the volume knob and the coil taps give me a crazy amount of tones possible. Can cover everything from 1960s to modern stuff with just this guitar plugged straight in. Plays like a dream. PRS fixed bridge is the best, stays in tune for days and PLAYS IN TUNE better than any other guitar I have. Stays in tune after 8+ hours in a trailer. Mine has the 5-way rotary knob, which I prefer to the push pull, but I know I'm in the minority there. 2001 Model, emerald green, moons, fixed bridge. PRS guitars are extremely versatile and seem to do everything well. The coil taps twang better than my strat, and can nail hendrix tone. I love this guitar.
