PRS Guitars began in 1975 when Paul Smith himself built a guitar for a college project. After getting an A, he decided that this was something he was quite good at and began building small batches from his bedroom. He’d build guitars and peddle them up and down the country and to some of the biggest artists at the time in order to catch a break. Santana and Al Di Meola believed in his product and are part of the reason that the guitars began to take off.

He moved production to a factory in Annapolis and began producing a higher volume of guitars without ever skimping on quality. In fact, it’s one of the things that PRS are most well-known for today!

The company was officially launched in 1985 and the rest is history. They’ve only grown and have only gained more popularity as the years have gone on and unlike many other guitar brands have never seen a dip in popularity but rather expanded their empire to what it is today.
