Stevensville, MD (January 8, 2012) – Handmade in Stevensville, Maryland, the PRS 2-Channel Custom 50 and 100 watt amplifiers are the newest models available through the PRS Custom Amp Design (CAD) program. Similar to PRS’s Private Stock program, Custom Amp Design explores new, enhanced, and personalized amplifier options. The 2-Channel Custom, for example, takes the popular 2-Channel “H” to the next level by adding several additional features to help musicians shape their tone. These versatile and articulate amplifiers are well suited for alternate tunings.

Additional CAD features for the 2-Channel Custom include: solo boost, reverb assign, presence control, switchable power amp bass boost, switchable mid shift, and 3 button LED footswitch. This amplifier is available as a 50 watt head, 100 watt head, or a 50 watt 1x12 closed back combo.

Like the 2 Channel “H”, the new 2-Channel Custom features: 6L6 tubes, global reverb, volume, treble, mid, bass and bright switch for each channel, lead master volume, clean master volume, 4, 8 and 16 ohm selection, two output jacks, fixed bias, effects loop (send and receive level controls on back panel), and footswitch (controls channel selection and reverb on/off).

Other CAD models include: the Sweet 16 +, 25th Anniversary, HXDA, Paul’s MDT Custom, PRS Blistertone, and the PRS Dallas.

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
