David Grissom and Paul Reed Smith have worked together for several decades, so it’s fitting that David now has his own signature PRS amplifiers: the DG Custom 30 and the DG Custom 50:
“The DG Custom amps are the culmination of a three year collaboration between myself and Doug Sewell. We set out to create two distinct amps – a 30 watt and a 50 watt – that would rival the best of my vintage amps.”
“After extensive designing, redesigning, and repeated comparisons to the amps I have cherry picked over the years, we have come up with two amps that I am blown away with. I’ve used them on hundreds of gigs and sessions and found them to be equally well suited to both live situations and studio work. Both amps do their own thing, and are far from knockoffs of any classic designs that boutique makers often strive for. I rarely play a gig when someone doesn’t want to know what amp I’m using and the story behind it. I’m excited and proud that these amps are now in production. I’m hopeful that other players will find them as inspiring and musical as I do.”

Developed and refined over many years, the PRS David Grissom signature amplifiers bring David’s discriminating tone to players looking for a highly-responsive, musical amp rig. The PRS “DG Custom 30” comes in blonde vinyl with a cherry stained mahogany fascia and un-tinted salt and pepper grill cloth. It features four EL84/7581 power tubes and several tone-sculpting features, including bright switch, reverb, boost/normal gain switch, presence control, and top cut control.
I’ve seen Grissom do a clinic demonstrating his signature guitar, and it’s clear he doesn’t take tone lightly. I bet these amps sound great.
