The original PRS DGT (David Grissom Trem) is one of the company's most acclaimed signature instruments, and it’s now available as a value-packed SE model for the first time! The DGT is essentially a hot-rodded PRS McCarty packed with personalized modifications and custom-voiced pickups. A dedicated PRS artist, David Grissom worked with the company for more than 20 years to refine his instrument to perfection. Beyond vintage-voiced humbuckers, the PRS SE DGT also boasts streamlined pickup controls, taller frets, and David’s signature neck carve. With spectacular features like these, it’s everything you’d expect from a high-quality PRS that’s ready for years of use. From the mahogany body and neck to a stunning maple top and Patented PRS Tremolo, David and PRS have built an incredible instrument at an enticing SE price point. David himself put it best: “The DGT is a product a lot of miles down the road: a lot of gigs, a lot of records. It’s like picking up a vintage guitar.” Here at Music Experience, we couldn’t agree more.

Dependable tonewoods

David Grissom favors classic tonewoods with a familiar sound, which makes perfect sense given his work with artists like Storyville and John Mellencamp! The PRS SE DGT stays true to his rock roots with a comfortable resonant mahogany body. Mahogany delivers rich, warm tone with strong critical midrange; complementing that is a gorgeous maple body cap for a classic look that adds a touch of brightness and snap.

Comfortable DGT neck carve

Whether you're playing rhythm or leads, this guitar’s neck carve, the DGT, is your ticket to rock. The DGT carve sits close to PRS’ acclaimed Pattern Regular neck carve, but features modestly enhanced shoulders for a touch more substance than your standard “C” neck. The DGT carve especially improves playability on the lower strings; it's ideal for versatile players, especially those who favor bluesy stylings that demand excellent playability at either end of the neck.

Texas-tinged “S” DGT humbuckers

Taking inspiration from the Lone Star State stomping grounds of David’s career, two onboard “S” DGT humbuckers deliver vintage-inspired, smokey Texas-tinged tone. For the original DGT, David and Paul Reed Smith personally spent a year testing and refining 40-plus pairs of pickups before narrowing the options down to these two masterpieces. “S” pickups like these DGT humbuckers let you benefit from all the R&D that went into the original version, but at a fraction of the cost.

Custom controls

The SE DGT’s pickup controls are extremely customized and gig-ready. You get a volume knob for each pickup, which makes switching and blending onstage a breeze; meanwhile, a push-pull master tone knob gives instant access to high-quality single-coil tones. The pickup selector is also scooted back behind the bridge, so you’ll never hit it with your strumming hand during a set. It all adds up to more proof that David’s “signature” on the PRS SE DGT is much more than just a rubber stamp.

What PRS Says...

“I didn’t just rubber stamp this. This guitar is something I have been very involved in and am really proud of. The SE Series is lightyears ahead of anything I could get my hands on when I started playing - it’s amazing how far the quality has come – and I am proud to be able to offer this guitar to more people.” - David Grissom

The PRS SE DGT (David Grissom Trem) brings David Grissom’s signature model to the SE Series for the first time. Based on the McCarty platform, the DGT model has been a constant favorite since its introduction in 2007, thanks to Grissom’s deep knowledge of vintage guitars and his painstaking attention to detail. Every feature on the SE DGT has been considered from the neck shape to the fret choice and dressing, from the colors to the pickups and electronics layout. The SE DGT features vintage-voiced humbuckers paired with individual volume controls for each pickup and a push/pull master tone control that taps the humbuckers for sweet, single-coil inspired sounds. This layout puts a lot of control and versatility on tap so you can focus on playing and not the guitar. Additional appointments include a maple top, mahogany back, 22-fret, 25” scale length mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard, and bird or moon inlays (inlays are color dependent).
