So this year it finally happened, diaries came together after two years of other events and dates clashing for both Paul Reed Smith and Lee “The Captain” Anderton.
Paul Reed Smith makes some of the finest guitars money can buy, some are eye wateringly expensive and some are more fitting to the everyday pocket! Whatever your own budget is, you can be sure of getting a guitar that meets exacting manufacturing standards.
Personally I would buy the following: 277 semi hollow baritone, 277 solid body baritone (both are from the SE range), an S2 double cutaway in vintage cherry and a 594 Single cutaway in blood orange.. There are others of course but would be delighted to own these for now..
Paul has a very entertaining way of arguing the age old thing that woods make a difference. anyone who has worked with or does work with wood everyday will know the differences in the way it can be worked and the acoustic properties. Hard wood resonates with a greater musical note than soft woods. Fact.
The passion and humour Paul has is infectious. If you can get to one of his talks do as t will be one of the best evenings you can have. But for now here is the talk. It was not meant to be the full show, but problems with editing means it is straight out of the camera…. It is in 4K though!!
The other video is showing the fine guitars on display that evening.
