Stevensville, MD (September 19, 2008) - Experience PRS is taking place this weekend - it''s a time when select PRS fans gather at the company''s headquarters in Stevensville, MD, to hang out, tour the factory, participate in seminars and clinics, attend performances and meet PRS artists like Paul Jackson Jr., Howard Leese, Mark Tremonti and David Grissom.

It''s also a time to see the company''s newest products. PRS Director of R&D/Director of Private Stock, Joe Knaggs, showed us around the custom shop where the company''s new Chesapeake Acoustics are made, as well as the new Chesapeake Electric. We got to see the new Single Cut Mira (w/ a Bigbsy!) - this guitar has since been named the Starla, the SCJ and a killer Private Stock Mira. Check out the video below:

We polled our readers to find the coolest guitar shops in the US, and here are the first half of the results, in no particular order.

The 20 Coolest Guitar Shops in the US, Vol. 1
"We asked PG readers what is the coolest guitar shop they've been to in the US. And while long-gone favorites like Manny's Music (New York) and Black Market Music (San Francisco) came up again and again, there were even more current shops topping readers' favorites list. We compiled the 20 most mentioned stores and quickly realized there were too many great photos we'd have to cut in order to get them all in one gallery. So here's the first installment in no particular order. If you're wondering where your favorite is, it may be coming next time, or we might not be aware of it, so feel free to leave your faves in the comments section."
