Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the Heartbreaker Guitars Blog. Today I wanted to discuss a really fantastic way to trick out your Paul Reed Smith Guitar that many customers might not know about. It is called the PRS Artist Package program and it allows you to customize some really important details of your Paul Reed Smith Guitar without having to go all the way to a Private Stock guitar, which is the pinnacle of PRS building but they do come with a slightly increased price tag, just a few $$$ more.  The Artist Package is available to the guitars in the PRS Core line, which include the Custom 22 and Custom 24, the McCarty 594 and McCarty 594 Singlecut, Hollowbody II, 509, and Tremonti signature, just to name a few.

We know these guitars are amazing examples of Paul Reed Smith guitar making but the opportunity to make some tasty upgrades, to really personalize your PRS, is hard to resist. So here at Heartbreaker Guitars, an authorized Paul Reed Smith dealer, we weren’t able to resist and we have a couple PRS Artist Package guitars set to arrive in the next few months, here are some of the details and we cannot wait for these masterpieces to arrive. Words can never describe these guitars, only sounds and pictures can, so stay in tune and keep checking the Heartbreaker Guitars website for new arrivals.
