The PRS Paul Reed Smith DGT Standard Electric Guitar is a beautifully crafted instrument with an all-mahogany design. This gives the DGT Standard a unique voice with a focused midrange, chime and great harmonics. Paul Reed Smith loads this guitar with a DGT Treble pickup and DGT Bass pickups along with a push/pull coil splitter, giving the DGT Standard great versatility!
‘The DGT Standard has been in the works for the last year, and I'm really excited PRS is doing a run of these guitars in a bunch of cool colors. My first PRS was an '85 all-mahogany Seafoam Green Standard, so this guitar brings everything full circle for me. After playing my DGT's almost exclusively for the last 5 years, I wanted something that had all the features we worked so hard on with the original DGT, but with the sonic character of an all-mahogany guitar. The all-mahogany guitars are more focused in the mids as a general rule, and have a nice chime and growl as well. Paul and I both agreed that doing an all-mahogany version was the ideal way to get a great variation on the basic DGT without sacrificing any of the soul and features of the original. I got the first prototype at NAMM this year, and I have to say that PRS hit it out of the park once again!’ - David Grissom
Finish should enhance the look, sound, and feel of a guitar by accentuating the wood’s inherent beauty and feel without hindering its natural resonance. And PRS Guitars’ ‘V12’ finish does just that. ‘V12’ is a very thin, hard, and clear finish that will not crack or react with thinners. After roughly 12 years in development, it is halfway between acrylic and nitro but with a classic feel all its own. ‘PRS models with this new finish feel like old instruments,’ said Paul Reed Smith.
PRS Guitars Phase III tuners are new to the line up and come standard on the PRS Paul Reed Smith DGT Standard guitar. These very smooth, high-tolerance pegs feature an elegant design with larger buttons, an open back, and closed housing.
