Respected session and touring guitarist David Grissom and Paul Reed Smith Guitars have enjoyed a decades-long relationship, the DGT being a beautiful outcome of that partnership. Over the years Grissom’s perspectives as a seasoned pro have served as an important influence on the development of PRS instruments.
The point of departure in designing the DGT was the McCarty Trem-equipped guitar David used on countless recordings and shows. His signature instrument is an update with custom Grissom-specified pickups and wiring, bigger frets, and heavy-gauge strings—a killer combination that offers effortless playability and a galaxy-spanning tonal palette.
As Private Reserve Guitars’ Brian Baggett amply demonstrates in the video below, the DGT pickups with coil taps should keep you busy exploring all its tone possibilities for hours on end. Factor in the fast neck and that rock-solid whammy bridge and you’ve got an axe that’s ready for anything from old-school blues to 21st-century rock excursions.
The PRS DGT goes from sparkling single-coil spank to throaty humbucker fatness, and get a load of that 10 top!
You could get lost in the mile-deep figuring of the DGT’s 10-top, an effect that’s enhanced by the flawlessly applied Aquableux finish. Meticulously inlaid birds on the rosewood fingerboard are further evidence of the obsessive attention to detail this guitar has received. A great acquisition for anyone’s collection, the DGT begs to be possessed by a working musician who’ll fully exploit its vast range of sounds.
Here’s what a couple of our Guitar Advisors had to say about the PRS DGT David Grissom Signature Electric Guitar:
Once you've played a PRS David Grissom model, you'll get why people love them! These are by far my favorite sounding pickups in all of the PRS lineup. They have plenty of organic character to their sound. Plus, PRS makes the best built production guitar in the industry.
Paul Reed Smith is legendary for unmatched reliability and consistency in making amazing instruments, and the DGT is definitely part of that reputation. The DGT pickups give you a rich, organic palette of tones. I love the bigger frets and neck shape. This is an amazing studio guitar possessing a huge array of tones and an intuitive control layout. The Aquableux is stunning in person, as well.
