PRS announces the all-mahogany DGT Standard 22-Feb-12
PRS Guitars has introduced a variation on their DGT (David Grissom Trem) model – the DGT Standard. They tell us that this all-mahogany version of Grissom's signature model maintains many of the features unique to the DGT, including Grissom's signature neck shape, slightly larger frets and heavier strings, tremolo capability, and specially designed DGT pickups with individual volume controls. Grissom's original PRS signature model has been one of PRS Guitars' most popular artist models since its introduction in 2007.
David Grissom had this to say
"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!"Pricing and Availability:
